show duplicate folders/CDs
« on: July 24, 2011, 23:43:02 »
Your program is really useful but I'm missing something. I'm trying to merge two huge collections of mp3's (120,000 audio files) and there are a lot of folders containing albums/cds that are duplicated. So what I'd like to have is a function that can point at duplicate folders. I mean, I would like the program to show me the duplicate audio files as it does now and an option to show whole duplicate folders (as fas as audio files is concerned). Example:

I have this folder:

Q:\MUSIC\POP-ROCK\Boston {1997} Greatest hits

containing this:

01__Boston__Tell me.mp3
02__Boston__Higher power.mp3
03__Boston__More than a feeling.mp3
04__Boston__Peace of mind.mp3

Another one:

F:\Boston - Greatest hits

Containing this:

Tell me.mp3
Higher power.mp3
More than a feeling.mp3
Peace of mind.mp3

It would be nice to have a checkbox called show duplicate folders so that instead of seeing the duplicate mp3s I could see the folders containing the same mp3s like this:

Q:\MUSIC\POP-ROCK\Boston {1997} Greatest hits
F:\Boston - Greatest hits

That way I can open the explorer pressing Ctrl+B and see both and decide which one to delete. This would really speed up my work. It would also be good to have a tolerance bar in case one or two mp3s are missing in one of the folders, I mean, something like the folders have a 90%, 80%... of audio files in common.

I hope you decide to implement it. Thanks for such a good tool.

Thanks for idea. We think about it and implement such feature in future.
