1. If you experienced a crash or other abnormal behavior, please attach the log file 'beaTunes-logs-2013-10-31-120815.zip' by dragging it from your desktop onto the 'Attach File' button below.

I removed a bunch of dupes in my iTunes library with another program - but it looks like beatunes still thinks they are part of my library when I do analysis operations. How can I get it to rebuild it's database?

Also, can beatunes be used to analyze and fix music libraries NOT associated with my I tunes application? (I have multiple music libraries that I use with different apps and music servers)

Thanks!

    Hi Marc,

    beaTunes should pick up the changes in your iTunes library automatically or after synching (via File -> Synchronize)—provided that you are actually working with an iTunes-based library.

    Regarding your second question, beaTunes can also work with libraries that are simply defined by a file system folder.

    Please take a look at http://help.beatunes.com/kb/troubleshooting/how-to-tell-an-itunes-b... —I think it may answer most of your questions.

    Cheers,
