Database Duplicates of the same file

Post by mikeprior001 »

I have a problem that the MM database does not clear previous versions of the same song files. So I end up with multiple listings of the same files when I do a search. This causes problems because when I change information in the tags it updates the tags in the version I have open but not in the duplicates.

To be clear these are duplicates of the same file in the same location with the exact same name. I am not referring to song files that have the exact name but are located in different places on the hard drive.

So you have duplicates with the exact same Path? Which Build (Help > About) of MediaMonkey are you using?

Are you doing anything with the files outside of MediaMonkey?
