. Lots of good stuff there for handling large libraries, playlists, etc. and getting around some of iTunes limitations.
Yeah I discovered them only last weekend would you believe? I was in deep doo doo after a major screw up I made.
I had used Senuti (iPod to Disk utility) after a disk crash on my second internal drive where my iTunes has its data. I wanted to restore to the back up some stuff i knew was more up to date on iPod before the restore (big mistake!).
To my horror, even though I had checked 'skip if same' ... I went from about 8,000 songs to 16,000. Sentuti is not too intelligent it turns out and saw all my iPods contents as being different from HD version of same material! Every song was there twice.
I had several hours of panic as this was my only back up. I eventually found this web site you mention and actually used iDupe an $8 shareware that was able to remove all the dupes in sections. It took about two hours but I am back where i started now! Phew!
Some amazing stuff there i agree.
