Title: Grouping different songs, do not understand
Post by: BrunoBibou on June 23, 2014, 15:10:07
Hi,
I have bought Similarity Premium yesterday and was able to remove hundreds of duplicate songs on my computer, therefore gaining plenty of space on my Samsung Galaxy. I have understood the basics, read the tutos... I must admit I am not sure I have understood all the analytics, but I will carry on.
One thing that disturbed me was grouping of songs that were totally not the same (for example all songs of a same album).
I have no clue why these songs are grouped as duplicate. Can anyone helped me on this, as I have no clue what to do and they keep coming after evry run.
Thanks,
Bruno

Current grouping mode dosn't documented yet, all articles about old versions. To simplify grouping scheme you can switch to "flat grouping mode" in Options. Information from news:

New flat grouping mode

Files grouped in flat mode by Base File (first file in pair) - File (second file in pair). Example:
Flat mode:

Files grouped in Normal mode by Super group (smart group) - Base File (first file in pair) - File (second file in pair, always collapsed). This mode is default. Example:

To switch to flat mode, you need enable checkbox in Options (you can enable/disable it anytime).
