I think this would be a great feature to add. During the import process - currently when your not in quiet mode, when there is a duplicate, you are prompted to skip, merge, as-is, keep new, keep old, or delete.
When your in quiet mode, there is no option for delete if already existing.
Would be nice if:
If duplicate exists
Check if the sizes are the same
Keep larger file size
Delete the matching duplicate by either hard delete, or move to /.deleted-by-beets directory
I saw on github that this is an issue (I cant find the issue sorry), but would love to have this!
Does that mean the ‘delete’ option itself is already available somehow, @adrian ? (you went straight to the quiet mode feature)
Having to go through the remains of a big batch import and remember why each one was skipped afterwards is the roughest edge of beets for me. An option to skip-and-delete (but not necessarily delete all skips) would be great!
