Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding duplicate songs, part of Up and Running with iTunes 12.
- As you continue to work with iTunes,…you're almost guaranteed at some point…to import a song you already have…in your library.…And in most cases, iTunes will dutifully copy…that song into your library again…and you'll end up with a duplicate of that song.…Now iTunes is pretty good at detecting an exact copy…of a file,…so if you try to drag a copy of an existing song…into your library, iTunes won't copy it,…but there's still always the likelihood…that your library contains duplicates…of several files.…Now there may be reasons why you…wanna keep multiple copies of certain songs.…For example you might have a song that appears…on an album by a band…and also on a greatest hits compilation…and a movie soundtrack.…
If you wanna make sure the album,…the compilation, and the movie soundtrack…all stay complete…you would keep all three versions of the song…in your library.…But if you have multiple copies of the same song…from the same album,…chances are you'll probably want to locate…and remove the extra copies.…Fortunately iTunes can find duplicate songs…
