Which version of MMA and MMW and how exactly did you sync when duplicates occur?
I am using MMW v188.8.131.524 and MMA v1.3.3.0842.
I connected my OnePlus 6T to my PC via USB. When the device was recognized by MMW I synced from MMW. It took about 60-90 minutes for the files to copy to the phone. When It was done I disconnected the phone from the PC and started MMA. MMA began scanning the library and adding the files to the database. That took another 60-90 minutes. When It was done I started looking through the library and saw that there were duplicates.
As mentioned in the OP, none of these tracks are physically duplicated. MMA properties point to the same directory for both files. If I check the files through an Android file manager or connect to the PC and use Windows Explorer I can't find any instance of an actual duplicated file. I don't know exactly how many files are 'duplicated' and going through the entire library to find them all just isn't going to happen. If I had to guess I would say there are about 400-500 'duplicates'.
I hope this helps since about two weeks of off & on searching has yielded no results for me. Thanks.
