Does Add to Playlist use Hard Disk space?

When I right click on a tune and then Add to Playlist to create it on another or several other playlists does this take extra space on my hard disk?

A little, but not enough to notice.

To be clear, doing this does NOT duplicate the song, the one copy of the song is used in all playlists.

There is a minimal amount of space used to say put this song into these playlists.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
