Music saved in "Access Denied" Folder
So i am lookin at my itunes library and i wanted to see where all the songs were that were NOT downloaded through itunes. I only have a few that werent because i recently formatted my hdd and installed windows 7. I transfered a few songs over and they are in itunes now. What confuses me now is that these songs are located in C:/documents and settings/.../my music/... and i cannot access this folder. Now i did a quick googling about the issue, and i get the idea that they are "junction points" and dont really exist.

So my question i guess is how in the hell did i transfer songs to a "junction point" that doesnt exist? im pretty sure these songs were transfered using a wireless network(which was a pain in the *** in itself to figure out with the "sharing" and what not) i honestly dont remember how i did it, but i THINK i did these that way. Actually now that i think about it, i could have just replaced my library with a saved itunes library file which i did and that ended up giving me a bunch of songs in my itunes library that could not be found. Understandably because they arent on this fresh HDD. But either way THESE few songs in question ARE on the hdd.. supposedly in My documents but that cannot be possible right? isnt My documents just a pointer to a different location on the hdd? if so why doesnt it show me the ACTUAL location. Is there anyway to find the ACTUAL location? And not only that, but it seems the ONLY way i can get to these song files is by right clicking them in itunes and doing the "show in explorer" option.

Anyway im going to stop now, any clarification on how any of this stuff works would be helpful... i dont like the idea of having my files labeled as being somewhere that doesnt exist..
