Locates pairs of track entries pointing to the same file

For macOS 10.10 and later only. This applet will scan your iTunes library for pairs of track entries that--very strangely--point to the same file and then copy those tracks to a discrete playlist for further examination; presumably you'll want to remove one of the faux pair tracks without Trashing the single associated file.

This is an issue that is occurring to some iTunes 11/12 users after moving media files from one place to another, perhaps incorrectly.

Action shot:

Scan For Double Entries in action

Progress during the scan.
