Description Of Issue Albums listed in the “Albums” view of the “Library” show more than one entry. In some cases it is one, other two, some even have as many as four. The music is stored locally on the Mac’s hard disk and there do not appear to be duplicate instances of the music files on the disk. How do I eliminate display of duplicate entries in this view?


The most likely (but not the only) reason is your watched folders overlapping.

Could you post a screenshot of your Settings > Storage please?

Has the problem just started?

Hi @Howard_Niden,

As Brian suggested, can you share a screenshot of Settings > Storage?

image Just in case the email didn’t get through.

There’s your problem. Notice how the number of tracks imported is the same for each folder?

You need to disable one; which one is up to you, but personally I like to have the more specific one rather than the catch-all Music folder.

Anyway, use the 3 dots to the right of one of the folders, and disable it. Using disable, rather than remove, allows you to easily add it again if you change your mind.

Thank you. That seems to have done the trick.
