Music files being duplicated
Recently I was doing some tweaks with my Windows Media Player library settings and since then my some of my music files are duplicated.
I have two two folders in my Music Library folder, 'Sample Songs' & 'Personal Tracks'. In 'Personal Tracks' I have many folders, including 'Downloads' and 'Concert Songs'.
My WMP library wasn't showing the tracks from 'Downloads and 'Concert Songs', so I tried adding them. Somehow the songs got added to my WMP library, but the tracks from those two folders got duplicated in my Music Library folder. Now if I delete the duplicated tracks, even the original ones are deleted. I'm pretty sure that they aren't shortcuts as there is no arrow icon below them.
Also the size of the Music Library folder is 3.49GB, but the size of the two folders inside it is 3.25GB, which pretty much clears it up that the duplicated songs are occupying lots of space, so they certainly cannot be shortcuts.
In case my post is confusing, this is how I used the terms.
Music Library Folder = The directory named as 'Music' under libraries.
WMP Library = Songs visible under the 'Music' tab of Windows Media Player
Please help me friends, it's irritating to see some songs occupying double space.
