to detect more duplicates, please run the MusicIP Analysis task on your whole library. Configure it so that it only imports PUIDs, but does not change any data. Then run the duplicates inspection again and more songs should show up.
I also am experiencing the duplicate phenomenon whereby iTunes has duplicated everything, adding a "1" at the end. Is there a way to find every file with a "1" at the end, and then get rid of it? I tried the option that keeps the file that was added first, thinking that the file with "1" must have come later, but it sometimes doesn't work that way.
You solved this problem for me back in 2010. Because I have about 500 Gigs, it isn't feasible to inspect each occurrence, so I need a batch solution. It worked at the time, after you tried about half a dozen fixes. But now I have it again. Possibly because I fixed only the files in my iTunes folder, and not in my source or backup folder. For some reason my itunes is now virgin, and I have to start from scratch to import files, and I'd like to fix the source files before doing so.
