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)

    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 —I think it may answer most of your questions.
