    Helllo All,

    Well I recently had to reinstall all my music again because of this I now have some songs that are repeated. Im lazy and its becoming very annoying to have to delete song by song. I was wondering is there a way itunes can delete all repeated songs???

    Thanx, I would appreciate it!:D

    You can select Show Duplicate Songs in the Edit menu and then sort by Date Added or something similar to quickly find duplicates in bulk. :)

    Well, if your problem is anything like mine and you had a lot of duplicate songs to get rid of but also multiple versions of songs that showed up in the iTunes "Show Duplicate Songs" feature that you didn't want to get rid of, this is a good start...

    It lets you decide the criteria for duplicate songs, such as same artist, title, <em>and</em> album, so that you don't get different versions of the same song deleted. The script puts them all in a new playlist, and if you want to delete them from there, just select which ones you want to delete and option+delete will delete them from your library, not just the playlist.
