I am using djmount to mount upnp music folders and then import from them into Banshee. Unfortunately, i set up the server in a way that for each artist there is an --All-- subfolder containing all the songs for that artist. This causes all songs to be imported twice into Banshee.

Is there a way to solve this without reconfiguring the server?

You could create a smart playlist (Media → New Smart Playlist...) matching all songs which filepaths (File Location from the dropdown menu) contain --All-- and then remove all those songs from the library. Definitely not the best solution.

Thanks for the fast response. It is a good enough solution for me. – Roland Jun 17 '11 at 18:50
