Duplicates in Songs list
#2
There are sort options at the top of the Songs list/SetList/Collections screens; you can use this to sort by date etc.

However, doing this means that you can't also have the files in alphabetic order (there may be a way but I don't know it).
Ideally you want to display the name followed by the date so you can easily identify the duplicates and then choose the oldest version.
The manual explains how you can add extra fields in these displays (ADVANCED SONG TITLE FORMATTING).
Having cleaned up your library, you can remove this additional formatting (unless you want to keep it)
Just checked - I can't see a %%DATE%% option so this might not work.

Assuming you can use the companion:-
1) Run it
2) On the initial  display, scroll to the right hand side and this should display the Last Modified Column.
3) Drag this column header to the left so that it is visible when the song name is showing.
You can now identify the songs  and the dates they were last changed (or created).

Please note that you can only delete songs from the Songs page (deleting from Collections or Set Lists just removes it from the list); this prevents you moving them to a collection for subsequent processing.

Suggest you use the companion to back up the database before you start (just in case you delete the wrong file).
After cleaning up, make another backup so you have something to recover from if something catastrophic happens.

Personally, I have automatic updating of MSP disabled i.e. I have to update manually. 
Before each update, I take a backup (just in case the update causes a problem); I use this approach because some users have found an automatic update causes issues when they turn up for a gig.

"blowing pages" indicates that you are play outdoors - remember that paper can be read on a sunny day!
