    I was just going through my hard drive, and found that I have two (sometimes three) copies of the majority of my mp3s (I use itunes). Not every song is duplicated, and the file that itunes uses is not consistent. (Let's say that there are two files, one named "Let It Be.mp3" and the other "Let It Be 1.mp3" sometimes itunes uses the first file, sometimes the second. Within each album, it's consistent, but beyond that, it's a crapshoot.)

    I started manually deleting the duplicates, but, since I have over 5000 songs, that method is tedious, to say the least. Is there an easier way?

    Thanks a lot
