How do i make sure that the same song, from the same album is deleted if they have different "date added" ? i run the scan and it is keeping the same song even though all of the other parameters are identical except for the date added field. I have put 'unkept' playlist into the trash although I have not emptied the trash. Could this cause the issue?

Clarification needed

For these songs with a different "Date Added", can you one at a time select each one in iTunes and then File>Get Info, Summary tab, have a look what it says for "Where:". Are both of the songs at the same location, or different?

If the same location, this is an unusual situation which I'm not sure how to replicate though I have seen it happen. Song Sergeant will attempt to remove the "unkept" track, but will obviously not try to trash the song file as its location is the same as the "kept" track.
