Go to start --> Search --> Search for *.mp3, *.wma, ect ect (whatever file format your music is in.) Select all, right click, CUT, make a new folder where you want your music at, go to that folder then PASTE, that should work, it works for me. As for your dupilcates, when you paste the files into your new folder, the duplicates will not get saved to that folder, simply erase all the folders that the music WAS in, and that will get rid of your duplicates.

EDIT : your duplicates MIGHT have a different file name, if they do, you'll have to go through and manually delete them, if your duplicates have 'COPY OF' you will want to search for MUSIC with the 'COPY OF' name.
