Duplicate Finder causes app to go white

After the import issue I tried to delete all tracks from MIXO and then re-import from Engine DJ again. I deleted all tracks from the 'All Tracks' on the left, waitied for sync to finish and update on my other device then re-imported from Engine DJ.

On re-import there were about 77k tracks despite only having around 24k in the collection. Looking at the 'All Tracks' list, there were triplicates and and sometimes 6 copies of the same track showing. I tried to run duplicate finder and while it found thousands of duplicates, when it finished running it caused the whole app to turn white and unresponsive. When I closed it and reopened, I tried running it again with a different sort option and it did the same again.

I would reset MIXO, but the problem is I have some smart playlists in MIXO that I don't want to have to redo. Unless there's a way to export or save the smart playlists I create and re-add them after a reset?


Sorry for all the tickets. Love the software, just want to help if others are having the same problem but don't report it.

Hi Brian,

In light of my previous response to your VDJ questions, if you are only using the My Lists folder in VDJ, here's what I would do:

1. Reset MIXO (Settings/Debug).

2. Import VDJ but select only the 'MyLists' folder.

This should result in a much cleaner and uncluttered import.

However, if you don't want to do that, my recommendation is to run the Duplicate Finder but use the STOP button periodically to perform clean-ups in batches, then re-run. This will avoid the memory crash due to the excessive duplicates that you've imported from VDJ.
