  2. Usually if you try to play a series of tracks that don't exist, WMP will
    ask if it should start doing some housekeeping of those folders. I don't
    know of any other way for it to prune the collection automatically: it
    tracks media files *moved* in the file-system, but not deletions.

    Thanks to Mike. The system did prompt me to remove missing files after a few
    tries at opening them.
