    Hello Everyone,

    I am in the need of organizing / cleaning my iTunes library. I have a very large library and somehow after installing my new hard drive, I ended up duplicating many songs and albums. I tried using the iTunes "show duplicate" but it is far too time consuming. I did a little research and came up with this list of programs. I would appreciate any input and perhaps this can be a guide to others.

    I did also find a script source that will help but I don't know how to install scrips and honestly, I don't trust myself installing scripts but here it is:

    An easier way would be to switch to list view, show the Date Added/Modified, and then have it sort from newest to oldest. All the duplicates would have the newer date information I would think.

    Doug's AppleScripts are very good and are updated regularly.
