Cloud is the “in” trend these days. Computer users across the globe, belonging to all walks of life, using computers for a wide variety of tasks, are all connected to the cloud these days. Heck, this list also includes those smartphone users who might have never used a computer throughout their life, but they are obtaining huge benefits from cloud technology every single day.
Cloud technology keeps your data safe and securely synced to the servers around the clock. The data is synced to the servers in real-time unless you’ve paused it (for computers). This helps guard against accidental data loss due to something going wrong on your computer, and also proves handy when someone is traveling but they are in desperate need of accessing a document etc. They can easily sign in by entering their login credentials, and access the data (provided it had been earlier added to the cloud).
There are several players in the cloud field, and Amazon is one of the renowned ones. It offers a whole range of cloud services including Amazon Drive, Amazon Prime, Amazon S3 etc. Today we will be looking at how to deal with duplicate music files that can potentially creep up Amazon Music, and cause all kind of data clogging as well as result in the wastage of precious storage space on your Amazon Drive account. Imagine the anguish these duplicates cause when someone discovers they had been paying a handsome sum of money for duplicates occupying (partly) their cloud storage chunk.
Unfortunately, there is no in-house facility provided by Amazon to take care of duplicates. The user must work out a way themselves if they want to prevent any data clogging. It is all left to the user to perform some hefty amount of hard work to single out duplicates and delete them. Even then, it all relies heavily on how well the user performed the duplicate spotting job.
The whole exercise of determining duplicates on Amazon Music is pretty straightforward. This method can produce mediocre level results at best, as it relies on the user doing the job with the utmost concentration, as well as the file names accurately depicting the content of the song.
The following lines elaborate how the user can determine duplicate songs in Amazon Music by doing it the manual way. Here it goes then.
- Sign in to your Amazon account and open up Amazon Music.
- Arrange all your music collection alphabetically.
- Now you will be seeing all the duplicates grouped next to each other, as far as the song name is concerned.

- Once you’ve found all the duplicate files, delete them.
- Now proceed to the Deleted Items section and empty its contents to complete the removal!
