    Hello,

    I have have ITunes on my Mac since 2008 and both the Mac and Itunes has undergone numerous updates through the years.

    As I recently moved all my music to a NAS and connected it with a streaming system I notice on the streaming interface that I have more than double the ammount of songs that shows in ITunes.

    In ITunes I have removed all duplicates "manually", however the problem remains.

    I have looked at my ITune folders and maybe the problem is there. Hence I would kindly ask if anyone can tell me how the ITunes folder should look.

    In the Music folder I have three main folders and sub folders, as follows:

    #recycle
    iTunes
    ITunes Media
    Library

    ITunes Media
    Audiobooks
    Automatic. Add to ITunes
    Books
    Mobile Applications
    Movies
    Music
    Podcast

    Library


    This is how the folder structure looked in my my mac and now on my NAS, I did not change anything.

    I am running: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63b) and ITunes 11.1.3 (8)

    Many thanks in advance,

    Richard

    What concerns me is this sub folder #recycle:

    #recycle
    iTunes
    ITunes Media
    Library


    I am not sure if this is just a duplicate of what I already have in the other folder: ITunes Media

    And well it should. I'd try moving it out of there, say into your "Documents" folder, and see if iTunes or the streaming setup misses it.
    Multiply updated versions of iTunes can have some weird issues.

    Hello,

    Yes i think it worked. The duplicates are now gone, but I also one song that is now not there in the library. There might be more but after 24h it is still looking very good.

    Many thanks!!
