This is an amazing Application, Iā€™m completely blown away by its effectiveness as well as by how simple it is to use. I absolutely love its features and it has a great cool interface.

I can use it on my Mac as well as on my Dell laptop. I always seemed to have an issue with music on my iTunes because I always ended up adding the same songs mistakenly from different folders. This means that my playlists always contained duplicate files, lots of them too. I searched around diligently for a good program and like a stroke of magic I finally found Tune Sweeper which was the most effective program available on the market to help resolve my situation.

I noticed the program looked for and grouped these duplicate files to make it completely simple for me to deal with them.
It gave me the option to select which tracks to keep automatically, such as the ones with the Highest Quality. I think it also gave me the choice to decide to keep the ones with the Longest duration or Latest added just to name a few of the options. The program then removed over 300 duplicate items from a long playlist, and now I have more space to add more music on my iPod. All in all, a great app.

I am very disappointed: I had several duplicates in my library. These duplicates were duplicates not as acutal files but as the links into my library. E.g. the song "xy" was listet twice in the library but only once available as acutal file. In other words, two link to one file.

What tunes sweeper did: it deleted all my music files that just had two links into my library, resulting that 243 songs were noch available anymore... I only wanted to have removed the duplicate link, not the one file. Really stupid, now I do have more work than before... useless in that case, sorry, really disappointing!

Further, of those albums with the duplicates, it also deleted the album picture. thumbs down again!

VERY DISAPPOINTING! not worth the money so far!

Hi, Tune Sweeper will have given you an option to backup any duplicates it deletes in the iTunes duplicates folder on your computer. This way if you change your mind you can easily add these back to iTunes.

Simply fantastic. Worked like a charm. And finally solved my long-standing problem of my iTunes doubling every track in my library and ended wading through endless support threads not really solving the problem.

Worth every penny and lots of features.

Can someone please tell me if this works with iTunes Match? My main library is on an old machine running OS X 10.5. My only 10.7 machine is my laptop, which only contains a portion of my entire library.

I didn't fancy going through iTunes manually and deleting duplicates one-by-one, so I'm happy to have found Tune Sweeper. It did an excellent job removing thousands of duplicates from my iTunes library. Highly recommended.

This is by far the most superior itunes cleaner I've used, it removed all duplicate files from my huge library without missing any in a very short time, they say you get what you pay for, and I believe it's a very cheap price for both the amount of space I've claimed back, and the feeling of having a clean, organized itunes library. Brilliant software.
