Although i Tunes lets you “manually manage your library”, it’s never intended to let you move things around in the filesystem, add, remove or modify files.On the other hand, it simplifies a lot of things for a lot of people.

It wasn’t until recently that I became aware that this feature has been available since i Tunes 9! I figure that if I, a self-proclaimed tech-a-holic, had no idea that automatic uploading from a watched folder in i Tunes was possible, there must be other people out there who are just as clueless as I once was.

Well, there is actually a folder located inside your i Tunes Media folder labeled Automatically Add to i Tunes.
I dragged all music folders into the "Automatically add to i Tunes" folder and moved them there.
