I've been a very happy MB user for some time, but recently had to replace the hard drive in my computer. The tech who did it transferred all my MB data to the new drive, but I noticed that in the middle of my Music (album) directories (c:/Users/Jon/Music/10cc, Beatles, Billy Joel, etc.) is a directory labeled MusicBee. That in turn contains a "Ripped Files" sub-directory which contains another full set of my Music (album) directories and tracks, e.g. c:/Users/Jon/Music/MusicBee/Ripped Files/10cc, Beatles, Billy Joel, etc. Is this a standard configuration?
The problem is that now that I've reinstalled MB, every album contains two copies of every track, one in the Music directory and one in the Ripped Files one. I've tried using the Manage Duplicates tool, but when it displays the duplicate tracks to be managed (which is everything in the library, over 11,000 tracks) it mixes up the directories where it found them. For example, the Path of the first track on an album is shown as the /Jon/Music/10cc directory (as an example) while its identified Duplicate File is in the/Jon/Music/MusicBee/Ripped Files/10cc directory. The same is true for the next track, but the third track has the directories reversed; the main Path is shown as the /Ripped Files directory while the Duplicate File is in the Jon/Music one. The next track is back to the first order, the couple after that are reversed again, and so on in apparently random fashion.
How can I clean this up? The Duplicates Manager tells me to drag and drop from one side to the other to sort the tracks I want to keep, but I can't do that for every single track in the library. Help!
