Can the records with the same pictures are in the Organizer add? I have to start? I tried to organize photos in folders in a time better. I have to start all over again?

I made new files so I could have a better time line, but the Organizer will not let me load them. The new files contain the same images, but they are better organized.  To add pictures in the folders I have to delete those in the organizer and start again?  I feel like I got this backward little and should have organized their first. Help.

The key to understanding the difference between the Organization of your files and folders directly in your disk folders tree and by organizing with a catalogue, is that the catalogue:

-contains no image files, that links to the actual location on the disk

-stores the links in a database with organizers strict rules, which is to avoid duplicates.

One of the highlights of the databases such as those in the elements or Lightroom is that they store duplicate data. Which avoids not only of space useless, but also ensures that you're updating a file and forget its duplicates. As a result, the Organizer will prevent you from 'import', which is to 'index' your files several times. It recognizes the files into two criteria: the size of the file in kilobytes and the "date" of the shooting.

The other strength of the catalogue, it's that you can select the sort order of your files displayed: by date, name of the file, import annealing in Bell or same "custom" order in albums. This means you don't ever need to have your physical files and folders sorted by dates on your drive. Try to get a similar organisation to the date on your car in your catalog can be an unnecessary pain. Good if you choose a folder structure to date in office at the time of importation; There must be little order at this time anyway. Once your photos are cataloged, the rule is that if you want to change the structure of your file, you must do it from the Organizer itself (left panel of record). This means that you are working with already imported files (you can not import duplicates). You can organize in this folder on the same panel as if you were in Solution Explorer / finder. You can either use the 'move' menu or drag and drop of folders with their subfolders, you can move the files of images to other subfolders. Beware, there are traps in doing this, for example by trying to move a subfolder in master already a folder with the same name of subfolder...

So, ask yourself if all this work is really worth. And be patient and prudent to do this task from the file Organizer Panel.
