Hey :wink:

Im a bit new to all this.
I’ve set up Picard for my needs and let it sort my whole music.
Because i reproduced the complete data from my old HDD that got broken i have now tons of tracks multiple times and Musicbrainz picard added them all as Title (x) with some going up to over (30) and i dont want to go through over 1 1/2 TB of music to trash the doubled files. Is there any way to tell Picard NOT to move a file if thats already existing instead of naming it File (x-Number) ?
Would be s glad theres a way to make that work.

Thx in purpose

No, I don’t think there is a way of doing that with Picard. Your best bet is to look for a program that deletes duplicate files.
