as part of the normal DMS config i have 2 shares that i don't use "music" and "video".
no packages i have installed use them, and they are empty.

are these ok to remove/delete? or does the system need them for whatever reason?

Audio Station and Video Station use them as a default place for their libraries but you can add other folders in the Indexing Service (Control Panel). AS will pick up the 'music' indexed folders in its shared library; VS still needs its libraries to have 'video' folders added to them, using the VS admin setting.

i don't have Audio or Video Station installed, so ok to remove?
i've also removed any indexing that is applied to those folders.

Media Server creates those folders as well. Dump it if unused.
