Also, I forgot to mention, "Copy itunes to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" is NOT checked, and the actual music is not doubled, it is only doubled in iTunes.

Perfect. I've heard whispers that Apple is "cutting edge" and "innovative", yet they can't even come up with a simple fix for their own software. lol to them.

I have an itunes music library of approx 7,000 songs with a size of 106 GB. Recently I received a message as "limited space left at start up disk". When I checked the major folders at finder, I realized my itunes music library has a size of approx 224GB with more than 14,000 items. Which is nearly the double of my existing library. What might be the reason for this problem? Is there a way I can fix it? The problem could have happened when I tried to revert itunes 11 to itunes 10.7 some months ago. Later I installed itunes 11. I greatly appreciate for your help. Is deduper and/or exactduplicates a solution to my problem. Thanks Eminsoy

Hi. My scripts (so far) are only for Windows. You'll find similar offerings for Mac users (with much better presentation) at Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes. You may also find my initial post in this thread shows how to clean up by hand which can be easy enough if the duplication happened at a well defined point in time.
In iTunes 11 use the View menu and for a Mac use option when trying to display exact duplicates.
