Looking for an advanced "search duplicates" plugin
I would like to search in my database all title that are redundants (!= files), i.e. each file which refer to a combination {artist+title} also used by another file.
For example, if I have the following combination:
Code: [Select]
file1        ArtistA    TitleA
file2        ArtistA    TitleA
file3        ArtistA    TitleB
file4        ArtistA    TitleC
file5        ArtistA    TitleD
file6        ArtistA    TitleD
file7        ArtistA    TitleE
file8        ArtistA    TitleD
file9        ArtistB    TitleG
file10       ArtistC    TitleC
file11       ArtistC    TitleE
file12       ArtistC    TitleE
file13       ArtistD    TitleH
file14       ArtistE    TitleI
I would like that the query returns
Code: [Select]
file1        ArtistA    TitleA
file2        ArtistA    TitleA
file5        ArtistA    TitleD
file6        ArtistA    TitleD
file8        ArtistA    TitleD
file11       ArtistC    TitleE
file12       ArtistC    TitleE

The goal for me would be to remove these duplicates files.

Is there a plug in which could make such a query? How?

Maybe you could write a lua script (with foo_lua) that would do that.
Search the other threads if you need more info on foo_lua.
