From the Introduction section of the Picard User Guide, “Picard cannot… …automatically identify and remove all duplicate music files in your collection.

but in that link i posted that guy was able to do it

He was removing duplicate genre tags, not actual music files. Perhaps I misunderstood, but I believe that you’re looking for a way to automatically remove duplicate files.

For more information, have a look at:

There are dedicated dedupe utilities. DupeGuru is one I’ve used a bit. It seems to work OK.

Music players, including iTunes and MusicBee, also have ways to identify duplicates for easy removal.

Take a look at beets.io and the Duplicates plugin.
