I inherited a lot of music lately, and am trying to import into my library.
I would like to see the the file compare feature allow two kinds of of search
1st. type search - Compare songs in a base folder. for example:
D:\music\new rock flac this would be the base folder, has say 100 songs.
Compare all songs in following folders:
D:\music; D:\new mp3; D:\mp3 working; E:\music 1990s; E\music 2000s F:\Allmusic
1st type search - The second parameter is where to search. example:
F:\ Allmusic F music might have 50 subfolders with mp3, flac, other formats.
•Duplicate Name Search
•Duplicate Name+format (specify format)
•Duplicate tags (or specific tags)
•Non Duplicate tags
•Show All Duplicate Names. no path no folder
•Show All Duplicate Names & path\Folders
•Show only Identical content
•Show only Identical names / non identical content
There could be other filters i.e.
•file create - set the time span
•file modified - set the time span
•accessed - set the time span
•Stop search after "X" results
•Scan subfolders depth limit "X"
There are many search for duplicate file utilities, however, I haven't seen one specific for music, using the music tags grid like MP3tag. Which would allow other comparisons, genre, year, artist name, etc
Again this would really shorten my work time cleaning up tags on music I've fallen behind on adding to master library because of bad tags.
