Program for managing music, deleting duplicate entries, sorting?

  1. Hey, I just got 130gbs of music (all legal in case you're wondering) half of it is in artist>album>song format, whilst the other half is unsorted. I also probably have around 20gigs of duplicates which must be deleted from the unsorted entries. What I was wondering, is if there is a program which will do all this for me? It doesnt necesarily have to be free because it will take me about 200hours to sort through it manually in which time i can make a %$#@load of money:p

    I have enough storage space to copy the entire lot again, so what I though might work is this: Search for all the files in these folder using a program which hopefully you will suggest to me, set the "sorted" music as read-only or something similar, and then save it...

    this program doesnt need to be "uber-efficient" if it gets through 70% of it, I'll be helped out a lot:)

    Regards,

    WinAmp does that pretty well too.
