I'm aware of applications such as Similarity that scan your media library and detect duplicated music based on different critherias such as checksums or information stored on ID3 tags. But they are limited in the scope as they don't provide the means to fine-tune the critheria or define a custom one. You can expect better results if the critheria is fine-tuned according to the categorization, naming, tagging scheme to name some used in your media library.

From another informational perspective it would be interesting to know in an as accurate as possible way how much redudancy is in your music collection. For example is you have large VA Compilations, different releases of the same album (1st masters, remasters, vinyl), CD singles & Maxi CDs, Radioshows and Live Sessions. In a more broader sense and pure informational porpuse only it would be interesting to know as well what would be the level of redundacy if you consider remixes or different versions of a same track as redundant copies (aren't they at some degree?). For example if you are a Beatles fan, and you have all the possible versions of a given album or further a single track, including bootlegs, this track would feature a higher "redundancy level" in your music collection. What would be the tracks, albums or artists with a higher redundacy level" in your media library?
