Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix

The screen shoots and the instructions are for the moment a bit outdated, please read the Update log for latest info!
You find download link and installation instructions at the bottom of this post.

This script is rather four scripts in one!
- Copy/Paste: Tags - Album Art - PlayStatistics, between any tracks
- Find More From Same - Custom Search
- Find Duplicate Tracks by metadata (tags) or Duplicate Tracks/Folders by Hash value (file finger print)
- Find UnAnalyzed tracks i.e. tracks with no Hash value

The main purpose of this script is of course to find duplicates but instead of just deleting them, the script allows you to merge their PlayStat so your PlayHistory, PlayCount, DateAdded and Playlist Entries are intact.
The script makes it also very easy to replace old low bitrate files with new rips in higher bitrates since it lets you Copy/Paste metadata (Tags, Album Art, PlayStat) from one set of files to another very easy.

Some screen shots:

In bottom of "File To Edit" node. You'll find this:
Image

The "UnAnalyzed Tracks" node expanded
Image

The "Folder With same Content" node expanded:
This node finds folders which contains the exact same music tracks.
(Album art and other files are not considered.)
This is useful if you downlo... Err rip the same CD multiple times.
Image

- "Tracks With same Content"
Image

When expanding the "Create Keep/Delete Suggestion" nodes.
You must define how to find the tracks to keep.
Image

Then you can check the result. If you sort the tracks and then want to get back the original sort order. Just right click on the nodes.
Image

If you find tracks you want to delete in the "Delete Suggestion" node.
Select them, right click and chose the first option from the menu.
Image

And like magic the selected database values are transferred to the corresponding track in the "Keep Suggestion" node
Image

- "Custom Duplicate Search"
When expanding the node. You'll get this.
Image

And then you get this:
Image

When expanding the "Create Keep/Delete Suggestion" nodes.
You must define how to find the tracks to keep.
Image

- Copy/Paste MetaData
You find this feature in the right click menu in the main window:
Image

These Database values and tags can be Copied/Pasted:
Image

There are three automatically detected modes in which metadata can be Copied/Pasted between tracks:
You can configure three default paste actions in every mode for faster pasting.
- ListToList
In this mode both Database values and tags can be copied
Very useful for copying tags between two identical albums.
E.g. When reripping an existing CD with a higher bitrate.
List A, track 1 goes to List B, track 1
List A, track 2 goes to List B, track 2
Etc...
Image


- OneToMany
In this mode only tags can be Copied/Pasted
Useful for fixing tags in incorrectly tagged albums.
In this mode, plus the special case OneToOne, the "Single Field Paste" option gets activated.
Image


- ManyToOne
In this mode only Database values can be transferred
Useful for consolidation PlayStat between Duplicates.
Image

If you make an impossible selection. This happens:
Image

- "Find More From Same - Custom Search"
This is useful for finding duplicates from a set of tracks or to make extra analyses of one or more tracks.
Note, you can edit the text in all text fields to further enhance your search.
Image

The result of the search is presented like this.
Note that you can choose to include the seeding track(s) in the search result.
Image


Special thanks to Trixmoto who has coded everything with the Copy/Paste Album Art functionality!

Enjoy!

Looks like a nicely done script, great idea too. Really expands on what the default node lacked and that was information.

I just installed it, well, made the file & restarted. Not sure that technically constitutes "Installing" haha. Anyway, I can't really push it to the edge though, atm, because I only seem to have 1 duplicate entry and that's because the song was on two different CD's and I have both in my library, thus it's fine.

Though, I look forward to giving it a whirl the next time I need to figure out the mess of some dups. :)

861 duplicates! I have alot of work to do... :o

Very nice script, thanks Bex! Much appreciated! :D

edit:

First suggestion, I like the 'add to OK list' idea, but would be nice to have it on the node with #123 (2x) artist - track so you can "OK" all of the dupes in that node without having to add each one.

Thanks guys!

@Trixi,
Awaiting report :wink:

@Mizery_Made,
Only two dups? Just add them to the OK-list since you want to keep them.

@Teknojnky,
861 dups :o
I had like 500 and thought I was in the top but you bet me big time!
I'm down to 400 now and eventually all will be OK'ed or deleted.

Regarding not be able to "Add to OK-List" from the "same content" subnode. It's intentional to force you to look at the tracks, so you dont miss anything... I might change it in the next version.

How are these duplicates calculated? I've got none apparently!

Exactly the same as in the Duplicate Content node. Is that one also empty?

Yep, only two Dups. I only mentioned it since given I know both are "different," then I can't test the merging, etc features and thus help "test" for bugs and such.

Hmm, I was just thinking, since your "OK List" are just the duplicate items that YOU mark as being OK. So, (dunno if it'd be possible) but maybe an option in the right click menu or somewhere else where you could Select to "Hide" the OK list, and be able to uncheck the option if you need to double check the contents.

Iunno, may be impossible to implement, and it may not even be needed as the OK List only takes up ONE line when it's collapsed. Just trying to throw ideas out there though.

Yeah, it's only one "line" so it's better to leave it as it is.
Thanks for the suggestion though!

If you have played both of your duplicate tracks you can merge them (without delete one of them) if you want, so all stats goes into one of them. That way the statistics will be more correct, at least for one....

One thing that I think would be interesting would be to link OK files so that if the dup is played the playcount data is matched on both files.

Well, I see why you want todo it but I think it would "damage" your playstatistics... or do you mean it would fix it?

The playhistory, which can be displayed in my "Play History Node" script, can not be duplicated. So it would be inconsistent in a way to give all copies of a song the same playcount.

Anyway, there are other scripts that could alter the playcount. You could try them if you really are sure that you are doing the right thing.

Well, either that or wipe the one you specifiy as a dup. Example being I have a song that is on the bands cd, and then 5 soundtracks. I would like to keep the main bands song up to date, for use in smart playlists. what would be best would actually be linking one song to multiple albums but until that happens it's all workarounds. :(

Yes, a link to all copies of a track would solve this issue. It can't be done with scripts though since the database structure has to be changed...

Actually, maybe an option to reset the song played data instead of deleting the file? That way you could periodically merge the dupes in. I've been considering setting up my smartplaylists to filter out dupes on compilations and soundtracks. Sounds like a project. That way the only way the duplicates would get played would be if you played the compilation as a whole and then you could merge the playcounts.

I think that makes sense, maybe just in my head though.

Well, that's what this script does. It doesnt delete the tracks unless you say so- Or don't I understand what you mean?
