Difference between metadata folder and media folder in the Plex installation directory?

Potato_BobPotato_Bob Posts: 5Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

So there's two folders in the Plex installation directory that seem to have much of the same thing and I'm just curious if they do the same thing.

One is the metadata folder and the other is the media folder, both look like they house very similar files. I'm wondering because I was thinking about putting the metadata folder onto an SSD and then symlinking it back into the Plex Media Server folder but I was wondering if the media folder should be put there as well.
