iTunes Match Duplicates

Somehow, all of my music in iTunes Match was duplicated, so iTunes has downloaded 2+ copies of each song I have in my library. Is there a way to mark the duplicates in beaTunes after running an inspection so I can easily delete them all within iTunes? If I let beaTunes delete the duplicates, they still show up in iTunes with the option to download again.

Or is there another way I can use beaTunes to resolve this? Apple told me the only way to remove the duplicates within iTunes is to manually delete them one by one.

    Hey there,

    I'm afraid, I don't think I have a good solution for you. Sounds like an odd iTunes Match quirk.
