How can you remove duplicate copies of music files on your hard drive but be sure to keep the one iTunes is using and keeping the iTunes Library intact?


I have hundred of duplicate music files, using a tool like CleanGenius or others I can get a list of duplicate files, but I do not want to break iTunes Library and only want to remove the duplicates that are not being used in iTunes.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    I have the same issue. If I have a file in my music folder and then click on it and it opens in itunes it creates a duplicate file in my itunes library. Besides sorting in finder and deleting one by one based upon folder location is there a less mind numbing way to accomplish this task.

    Or do I have to pay the $10 for a program like Gemini?
