Removing Duplicates

I'm a new user to the Pro version and have a pretty dumb question. I imported the same directory twice and now have 1000's of duplicates. Is there anyway, short of starting over, to search for duplicates and remove them now that they are in my library?

Thanks!

bronder,
There is a Duplicates section in the left pane (Library Explorer) where you can list duplicates by different parameters
But in your case it would be more smart to sort book by Add Date and delete the 1000 of duplicates

Thanks! That is just the information I was looking for.

Hi Admin

A related question then is if you have books in a folder and then add new books, how do you scan to add only the new books and not end up with 1000 duplicates. This is the fundamental problem that I have at this time. Naturally a folder will have books added and needs to be updated. How is this achieved?

Hi Admin

Great, thank you - found it - "remove duplicates" option after scanning by file path or ISBN13 or MDS. Very clean and fast solution. For guys like me you should add a popup window, "duplicates files found return and select to remove duplicate before proceeding" or something similar.
