Why do I have *four* absolutely identical copies of some songs in the iTunes Folder. iTunes does not know about these copies in most cases, it just shows one copy in its database that points to "trackname 1.mp3". Or another duplicate, never the original. Is this some weird glitch with iTunes Match?
Thank you, Doug's Applescripts. https://dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/ss.php?sp=musicfolderfilesnotadded2 is slowly pruning my Music directory down from 300 GB. It may take a bit but I might actually have a hope of fitting all my stuff back on the Air once it's done...
All my music files are gonna end up being named "Trackname 01.mp3" and part of me hates that but I *never* see the filenames any more.
Also apparently part of how you get this is by dragging an album's worth of mp3s *and* a m3u playlist that lists them all. Which is how most music from Bandcamp arrives. So don't drag the directory any more, future me, just drag the files OR the m3u.
oops, I am wrong then. Huh. I wonder if that's a feature worth suggesting.
