It's been an old issue but I still have the problem of dupliate music files. How can I delete the extra copies of songs?

If they are true duplicates (same file name, same extension)...all you have to do is put all of them in one folder...each dupe will ask if you want to replace the previous version of the same file.

That doesn't actually work as well as you'd think hamluis. Take my sister's music folder, she has around 50 GB of music, divided in about 15 different folders for categorizing. Mixing all in one folder would mean losing the categories and a lot of time there are some files named slightly different that basically has the same song in it.

I have used dupeGuru (in Datcoolguuy's link) in the past, and it works very well. It should be just what you're looking for.
