What if all playcounts are 0? does it delete all? none? only 1?

    I guess you are talking about the duplicate inspection, right?
    I believe it leaves one.

    it apparently does that for some, and deletes all for others. This is turning out to be just as much work to double check the deletes and then reimport them than if I just hand did the duplicates...

    I checked the code and this is what happens:

    • All duplicate songs are ordered
    • first by playcount
    • then by bit rate
    • then by date added
    • then by artwork
    • From the ordered list the first item is removed - that's the one that's not deleted
    • All others are deleted

    Well something weird is going on...
    I reimported everything that was sent to recycle bin, verified stuff was back in libarary
    reinspected and did NOTHING other than "delete all but highest playcount"
    I am missing entire albums this way
    also, still left me with TONS of duplicates, which now it's not finding.

    I have now spent more time with this program than if I just hand deleted stuff. I would like a refund, as I now have to reimport (again) from my back up that I made (thank goodness) and will end up with MORE duplicates....

    I really don't know what's going wrong in your case, but since you're unhappy, I issued a refund.
