Similar/duplicate files  



Hi all

I have a fairly large music collection.

In finder there are no duplicate folders but within a lot of the folders there are 'duplicate' songs. They are duplicates but the names are different, I presume something happened when I moved my music folder to a NAS then got Music to organise things. Any ideas how to find and then then delete the 'duplicates' with different names. Heres an example . Any hints would be gratefully received.:)

If youโ€™re using iTunes/Music to manage your collection, you might want to try using its rudimentary duplicate detection to review and delete duplicates.


Hi, oh yeh thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried that but it only detects duplicates but they need to have the same filename as far as I can see.

I suppose I need something that looks at the contents of the file rather than the name. I think I might have an impossible problem ๐Ÿ™‚

But thanks anyway
