This must have been one issue which you really wanted to get rid of but couldn’t as you had thousands of songs in your library. Currently due to massive high storage ability it is very easy to gather GB’s of data in your PC, what really is difficult is to manage and organize them. Today in this tutorial we will show you how to find and delete many copies of the same song from your Windows, Mac or Linux computer.
dupe Guru is a very handy tool which finds duplicate copies based on songs Tags and Contents. Now the developers have also developed a new version dupeGuru ME (Music Edition), which not only finds duplicate songs but also deletes them. This is a cross-platform application which can run on Windows, Mac or Linux. Basically this App finds duplicate songs based on meta data. dupeGuru ME uses similar words to identify same songs, file content, regular expressions etc and supports MP3, WMA, AAC (iTunes format), OGG, FLAC, loss-less AAC and loss-less WMA formats.
Using dupe Guru is very easy. You just have to follow these simple steps.

Step 3 : The results will show all duplicate songs which you can delete or rename or do any other function.
