Files on external drive for Calibre

I have my books on an external hard drive. I transfer them from my computer to the hard drive in a dated folder. Once I pull that folder into Calibre I have noticed that calibre creates an authers folder on my hard drive. So what I am asking is do I need to keep the dated folders on my hard drive or can I delete them once Calibre has put these books into other folders? Does that make a lick of sense???

All books added to Calibre are COPIED to the Library folders (which you should not mess with, at least until you know what you can do without creating a mess).

Delete, Archive... whatever with the originals once Calibre has the books within its clutches.
