I'm not sure if this is the right place, but...
I have been unable to find a post answering a question.
Using MM3, I have run this script with find duplicate titles and artists +/- 5 seconds for track length and +/- 3 for bit rate.
WOW! have a lot. I have been going through each title manually, but when I click on a title(sometimes) it gets greyed out. I understand this to mean that the physical file is no longer the same filename or has been moved. In my case, after checking, it is simply that the filename has been changed and no longer is reflected in the properties.
There are thousands of these "duplicates". Recently I have cleared the library, which introduced a new slew of challenges(Many tags were not saved ,grrr...) Shouldn't this have eliminated all of the missing duplicates from the library?
While I use MM3 exclusively because the abilities that I know how to use are superior, I am by no means a "power user" of MM3 because I have found that many of the functions do not have simplistic explanations and how to instructions are not readily provided/found. And I do mean "SIMPLE". I am no rocket scientist.
Is there a faster or more efficient way of doing what I am trying to do? Dealing with +1tb of files...
Many Times there are multiple versions of the same song that I do wish to keep, so choosing the variable "keep longest length" in the Keep/Delete suggestion node would delete multiple versions.
