With Duplicate Music Files Finder you can track your music files duplicates and delete them. The program uses advanced search techniques to detect duplicates(it searches MP3s TAGS, detects duplicates even if the file names are not the same etc). If duplicates are found you can delete the files you want: just check them and press the right mouse button. You can also play the selected files in your favourite Media Player to see if they really are duplicates.
If you want to find out if you have duplicates of your music files (or any other type of file) inside your computer then you might wanna give Duplicate Music Files Finder a look. With this portable app you can scan your hard drive for duplicates of music files, you can use various methods for searching like for example only comparing files if they are of the same size, comparing by filename, by music tags, Etc. I found DMFF search matches to be decent for the most part tough sometimes false matches were a problem so before deleting any supposed duplicates you better double check with your favorite music player. Besides finding file duplicates DMFF can also rename music files and rename music files tags however i found these parts of the program pretty lacking because i couldn't get them to work as i think they were intended, so if you want to rename music files and tags i would suggest you better use other programs like for example Renamer and MP3Tag respectively.
In conclusion is my opinion that DMFF is a competent duplicate file finder most of the time but it's other features could use a lot more work so i am leaning to recommending that you try it at least once and make up your own mind. Available for all Windows versions.
