Exclude specific file format from duplicate listing

As the family librarian and administrator for all things digital, I am wondering if it possible to exclude a specific file format from the duplicate listing?

As I rip my CD’s, I essentially keep two sets of music collections, FLAC and MP3.

FLAC format for archiving and local playing and MP3’s those that I don’t have FLAC files and for the small arsenal of portable players that my family uses (iPod, Palm TX, Sandisk Sansa, iTouch).

During the winter months I find myself spending time cleaning up my collection by removing duplicate and lower bitrate files. Sorry, I’m not a fan of keeping complete albums. I only retain distinct versions of songs.

Anyhow, as I use the Duplicate Titles link with MM, I would like to quickly filter out the FLAC or MP3, but not remove them from my library.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Maybe if you create a filter for each filetype (File > Manage filters.)
