This is not an acceptable option, too much valuable information get lost if you delete the current database before rebuilding it. Can't Microsoft create a small utility that would scan the current database and delete all entries that don't match a physical location on the disk, rather?
I also have the same duplicate tracks problem every single time I rip a CD (over 2,000 so far), not because of a Windows 7 upgrade, but because I temporarily move the WMAs folders outside the indexed library so I can rip them to MP3s too, and then move the WMAs back to the library, and now they appear in 2 different locations. So for each album, I need to view them in the WMP library, sort by Path, and delete all the entries matching the old path. Such a pain. Every database should come with a set of utilities to perform repetitive tasks or fix bugs such as the problems coming from not being a dynamic database.
