Consolidating music files in itunes
If I choose to consolidate them, as you suggested, will I then have them all in two places? When you consolidate, any songs in the i Tunes Library that are not in the i Tunes Music Folder are copied to the Music Folder and the Library is updated to point to those new files.Files already in the i Tunes Music Folder have no changes made to them: Consolidating your library - Mac Consolidating your library - Windows Consolidating only affects anything you already have in the i Tunes library, it doesn't for instance scan for music files in other folders and add them into i Tunes.This i Tunes cleanup program would then ask you to choose scan mode from "Quick Scan" and "Deep Scan".After setting scan mode, click the "Scan i Tunes" button, then this i Tunes duplicate removal would start to scan your i Tunes music library for duplicate songs.
How do I get these songs in my Current i Tunes Library?
If you click "Add" button, this i Tunes cleaner program would ask you to select a music folder for cleanup.
After scanning, all duplicate songs would be displayed. Choose the ones you don’t want to keep and then click the "Remove" button to remove duplicate songs after you consolidate i Tunes files. In fact, Leawo Tunes Cleaner could not only remove duplicate songs, but also automatically download and add music tags to music files in i Tunes music library, and allow you to manually edit music tags.
Also, when you add an item already on your computer to your i Tunes library, i Tunes places a copy of the file in your i Tunes folder. If you want to add files to i Tunes library without adding them to i Tunes folder, you could click "Edit Advanced" option and then deselect the checkbox next to "Copy files to i Tunes Media folder when adding to library." Consolidating i Tunes libraries actually means you put multiple libraries or files in different folders into one.
This offen results in one problem: many files would get duplicates, especially music files.
