I’m back at cleaning the media library backups in my father-in-law disks. This had been postponed for the summer, but I’d like to get this over with by end of year (hopefully, haha!)
I’ve got about half of the library identified, tagged and cleaned by SongKong. Wonderful. Duplicates were sorted out as well. I’ve got the other stuff to go through; I’ve had limited success with Picard so I’ll give Jaikoz a shot, but later.
Today I just found another copy of the library with perhaps some extra files. I wonder if there’s a way to do a three-way merge through SongKong à-la:
- here’s the destination library, scan it.
- here’s a source library, scan it.
- Songkong, if you find anything in the source library that’s acoustically a duplicate from something in the destination library, move it to “ignored as duplicates” folder
- move everything else in the destination library, using the origin hierarchy
All this with a dry-run mode, of course!
Otherwise I guess I could restart from start and merge all copies into one with rsync or something simlar.
Someone here may have gone through such workflow? Any advice?
Thanks a bunch
