Upgraded files - workflow suggestions?

Thanks, guys. I've installed the add-on. Then, as a test run, I loaded about 5 albums at the higher bitrate into MMW, and scanned them into the library.

Opening up the Files to Edit node and the Advanced Duplicate Find and Fix tool, I find the 5 albums among those listed as "Unanalyzed" and they show up in none of the other categories - not in "Folders with Same Content" nor in "Tracks with Same Content".

Alternatively, going to "Manage Collections", under "Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix", is this screen:

I'm at a loss what to do next particularly since the screenshots at the link you provided all are missing. Seems like there should be a way to bring up the old album folder and track list next to the new (higher bit rate) album folder and track list and to choose which tags and album art get copied over and then delete the old folder.

Guidance?

I personally use right click Find More from Same > Album to find the duplicate Album files. This of course requires that both copies have the same Album and Album Artist values to be seen as 1 Album by MediaMonkey.

Thanks, guys.
Unfortunately there is little guidance at the link you provided and all the screenshots are gone. So I've waded through on my own and here's what I have accomplished:

Installed the add-on, loaded 5 albums into MMW as a trial run, configured the tool to copy over the tags I want and the album art.

Pulled up one album and there are, as expected, duplicates. One set has the ratings and low bitrates shown. The other no ratings and higher bitrates indicated. I can copy the metadata, one track at a time, and paste the metadata, one track at a time. I also have it configured to delete the old file and to place the new file into the same path the old one had previously occupied. Great! Again, my thanks to you!

Is there a way to do an entire album (folder) all in one operation?
Will it cause issues if, in some cases, the new, higher-bit rate album's list has a couple of tracks that the old one doesn't (because I didn't like & deleted one or two tracks in the past).

What about calling up a collection of 50 albums I recently added (the higher bit rates) and somehow having MMW find all 50 folders with low-bitrate duplicates and copying and pasting tags from all of them in one go? I know that is asking a lot but it would be SO WONDERFUL if it were possible.
