More than just a duplicates finder, Tune Sweeper is your all-in-one iTunes cleaning App. Automatically find and remove duplicates, discover and add tracks on your Mac not listed in iTunes and remove tracks listed on iTunes not on your Mac!
All performed quickly and easily with a few mouse clicks using Tune Sweeper!
- Duplicate Removal -
Tune Sweeper shows the duplicate tracks found in your iTunes library in groups and suggests which tracks to keep based on your preference. i.e. Highest Quality, Latest Played, Latest added etc. You can override this automatic selection on a group by group basis.
Also, you can listen to a track if your unsure if this is the correct track to remove.
At a click of a button, Tune Sweeper removes the selected duplicates from iTunes, saving you disk space and cleaning up your music collection. Optionally, Tune Sweeper will back up the tracks removed for safe keeping.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
If you have a large music library like I do, this app is perfect for detecting duplicates, removing the file of lesser quality, all while maintaining the original file in order to secure your music. I tried using a regular duplicate file finder, and even after going through each file meticulously, I still ended up erasing many files and had to reload iTunes….an entire weekend of “housekeeping” my music. I am pleased to say that TuneSweeper not only worked without flaw, but was able to erase multiples without losing the core file. My music is now nice and organized with no stray files, no duplicates and all core files in tact. After having my first “ooops”, TuneSweeper is my new best friend. Don’t use just a regular dulplicate finder…you will regret it. TuneSweeper allows you to set perimeters in order to assure original files stay put. I highly recommend this app for all who have a large music library or even those who want to organize iTunes. From a music lover with OCD (haha)…THANK YOU!!
Its a killr must have app!!
I had about 24,000 plus songs and when I started the cleaning process at around 4:00am it finished about 11:00am. It did an excelent job it did miss a few but that seams to have been atributed to them being on an extended HD where it say was read only. And the other cool thing is it lets you know if its in the cloud or not. Now I tryed other apps like Dupe Away and this one caught about 1200 more songs than Dupe Away so I would say Tune Sweeper is a better app! So my advice is its worth every penny.
Ps: One request for developers is that they give a little more control over search peramiters like Dupe Away does and it would be nice if you could select more than one search peramiter at a time.
Not smooth with OS X Yosemite Beta
The GUI of Tune Sweeper keeps freezing now that I’m running OS X Yosemite Beta. Maybe Yosemite Beta is the issue. I’m not sure. But I have to resize the window to get it to refresh. Not a big deal but not smooth either.
When I first used Tune Sweeper a year ago I noticed a glitch on the dupe count. In that case I ran it once, deleted dupes and saw a pop up advising there were X duplicates still not deleted. I think that was an erroneous message though. All the duplicates that I had manually seen in itunes were gone once I clicked the delete duplicate button within Tune Sweeper, regardless of what the pop up advised. Which is great!
So it does what it’s supposed to do well. Even though it’s reporting and screen refreshing seems a bit slow/wrong.
