Newbie Question: Inspect Library Changes

Hi all,

Just purchased beaTunes. I inspected my library and have been going through suggested changes. When I accept the changes to a group of songs, the next message is essentially "did this fix it?"

I don't understand this message. Am I supposed to visually check and say yes or no? For example, one change was removing Disc 1 from an album name. In the beaTunes window, Disc 1 was not removed. Am I supposed to see it change in front of me?

Additionally, when it comes to deleting duplicates, is this better handled by iTunes or beaTunes? I tried to delete a song, but want to verify it's actually off my hard drive.

    Hi,

    1. "did this fix it?" - most inspections allow you to select the songs to apply the solution to. Imagine 10 songs a solution could be applied to. Now you realize solution A fits the first 5 songs and solution B fits the second 5 songs. Asking whether you're done, gives you a chance to pick other songs and apply another solution. The actual change only happens when you commit all solutions.
    2. beaTunes tries to move the file to the trash. So it's in most cases not really off your harddrive until you empty the trash.
