I ran the check for duplicate files and check for duplicate contents searches and came up with over 900. When I used cyberlink power togo8, 1 copy happened to be the Itunes version and the other was the original ripped copy that had been converted to mp3 when it was ripped. How do I know which copy to delete, also does itunes store files separately in MM? I din't want to start deleting things and then when I create a new playlist to sync to my ipod touch, not be able to find the links and have to manually relocate the missing links. I am new to ipods and really new to music monkey, etc. I tried reading the knowledge instructions regarding deleting duplicates and basically got the message do it carefully one song at a time so you don't delete the wrong copy of the song. I an nervous about trying to figure out which files to keep or delete. also don't want to delete the files created by itunes, some are from itunes store, but most are ripped personal cd's for backups and convenient access to convert to mp3/ipod usage. eventually want to create a series of disks that acks up all of my music onto cd or dvd disks in case of multiple disk failures as I experienced recently and had to use a special device to recover my data from an essentially dead harddrive. would anyone be able to teach this inexperienced person how to clean up his files so as not to waste so much disk space on duplicates, but also not delete files needed for my ipod to be able to sync. I have not tried to sync with ipod and media monkey yet. not sure hw to do that either. Sorry to ask a question that is addresed in the knowledge area, but I found the information there rather incomplete. thanks for any assistance with my learning disability and media monkey skills development.
