hey there
still testing songkong on different behaviours (soon there will be a review on my page ;))

just a simple task question=

is it possible to rescan and update the already scanned and added itunes files
without getting double entrys in the itunes library?

Yes sure, just make sure you point to iTunes media folder rather than the original folder they were added from if you have iTunes configured to make copies of songs added to iTunes (which is its default)

i dont let itunes manage my folders.
i created the whole library with the add to itunes checkbox in songkong and i am pretty sure it missed a few files to add correct into itunes. so i wanna rescan the already added files too and maybee put in some changes in folder naming too.

just to be sure= i point songkong to the folder where all my tagged and "itunes added" files are. then leave the "save to itunes" option checked and it just updates or added new songs instead of making duplicates?

so i assume i leave the move to folder option unchecked this time?

thanks for your help

Yes, thats right, but why not just point to a subfolder first and try on a few files to make sure it works as you expect.
