    Music folder suddenly splits into multiple artist folders

    HI everyone,
    Thanks goodness for forums !
    I have windows 8 laptop. Nokia Lumia 1020 win8 phone, and I had Samsung allshare for my TV installed.
    I had a simple music folder.
    EG: albums, all singles, classical .

    Now, in Music folder, it has created folders for every single artist and its album with one song in it.
    So now, I have 1000s of folders alphabetically of every single performer on my laptop.
    Its making lose the will to live....I cannot even fathom how this has happened !!
    I am so hoping that SOMEONE has an answer for me.
    Years of computing experience and within seconds I am reduced to homer simpson.
    Thanks so much in advance x Jo
