I try to get rid of duplicates in iTunes but came across the following problem:

 

In File -> display duplicates tons of duplicates show up, but when I delete one file the entry is the itunes-library is deleted as well and I will miss this song in that specific album.

 

Is there a solution to refer to 1 file on disk with multiple entries in my library, to keep my albums complete with the correct ID3-tags (meta-data) and get rid of duplicate files on disk. This would save me a lot of space on disk.

 

Or is the correct way of avoiding copies of files in iTunes, to drag-in the file once and link with various album-playlists to it? Then you still missing the possibility of saving meta-data of those playlist-links, right?


iTunes, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
