Hi - I have 11K+. duplicates and when I delete them with BeaTunes, they do not get deleted in my iTunes library. Very annoying.
I work on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) running Mac OS Catalina version 10.15.5 (19F101). Can anyone help me? Thank you!

    Thank you for responding and no, none of the articles helped solve the issue.

    I work with BeaTunes version 5.2.9 and the Music App version 10.5.14.

    I look forward to your help.
    Thank you for taking the time.

    Hey Valerie,

    thanks for your message. Just a preliminary question: Are you aware that applying changes via inspection is a two step process? First you choose and "apply" changes, later you "commit" the pending changes.

    If that's already what you're doing, can you please do the following:

    • Stop beaTunes
    • Download and install the latest dev snapshot from
    • Start beaTunes and run the inspection for duplicates (you can disable the other inspections in the preferences)
    • Choose a couple of duplicates to delete
    • Commit your pending changes
    • Wait a couple of minutes
    • Check in iTunes
    • Upload your logs via Help -> Upload Logs.

    Hopefully that will give me the info needed to find out what's going on.

    Thank you,
