Question doubles triples quadruples

I think i know how i caused the problem but how do i fix it ? Although there are NO duplicates in itunes, there are 2,3, or 4 copies of every song in My Music folder. I finally pointed itunes media folder path to a itunes media folder instead of My Music. If i "consolidate files" would i have a itunes media folder without doubles and then could delete the original music ? Thanks for any help !!

Yes, this will work. For best results down the road, do this before Consolidating: open iTunes Edit menu->Preferences->Advanced; click the Reset button in the upper section of the window; put checkmarks in the boxes for "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" and "Keep iTunes Media folder organized"; click OK to save and close prefs.
