When does iTunes make duplicates???

Ok I've done some tests and here's when it happens.
  1. Tracks are added to the Automatically Add to iTunes folder and the files already exist.
  2. You have reinstalled iTunes and you set the copy to itunes folder option on, and then add music from the same folder that iTunes is set to store music. Every file is duplicated.
  3. Adding songs programmatically. If you are adding tracks from outside the iTunes library and iTunes already has those songs in the folder (and the copy option is on) duplicates will be created.

  1. I think there are 2 big issues that create duplicate in iTunes

    1. When we add some files in Itunes that are same but used with different artist.
    2. Files saved in different folder.
