Find duplicate files and tidy up your hard drive.

Tidy Up overview

Tidy Up is a full-featured duplicate finder and disk-tidiness utility.

Features:
  • Supports Lightroom: it is now possible to search and collect duplicates directly in the Lightroom library.
  • Multiple libraries support: capability to search in the supported apps (Lightroom, Photos, iTunes, Mail, Aperture, and iPhoto) by comparing multiple libraries of the same app with multiple libraries of different apps of the same kind (for example 2 Photos libraries and 3 Lightroom libraries).
  • Added the support to hard links: search for hard links or exclude them from the search and replace the found items with hard links.
  • Search for unique items gains strength: it’s now possible to use multiple criteria to search for unique items (items that have no duplicates).
  • Possibility to handle the found items at the administrator level: just allow the installation of the privileged tool and do the cleaning job. This is particularly useful to clean up old Time Machine backups.
  • New, completely redesigned interface, easy to use, and powerful.
  • Tidy Up 5 organizes the result separating the found items by file kinds, (music, images, PDFs, folders, etc.). It's completely customizable and allows you to add more file kinds at your choice. The new organization is based on the tab separation and each tab has its settings, such as smart boxes, separation by searched sources, view by grid or list, etc.

    I really liked and wanted to continue to use TidyUp! 5, but I need to have it on both my laptop and on my iMac. And NOT have to buy it twice to do so. License is PER computer, not user.

    Works fine on Big Sur. Just went through >15,000 photos in my Lightroom Library, and identified a whole lot of duplicates, as I expected. A good app in my >6 years experience using it.

    It doesn't work. I have put ten pairs of identical photos in a folder. Tidy up says there are no duplicates.

    Why such bad reviews? I have used TidyUp! for many years, and remain satisfied. No, it's not a 5-star app. But surely it deserves 4-stars ... Admittedly I am what some term a "power" rather than casual Mac user.

    Tidy Up can plow through hundreds of thousands of files in minutes, comparing their content, and finding duplicates. It works. Five stars. . Is it expensive? Kind of, yeah. On the other hand, if anyone can find something less expensive that works as well, by all means let the rest of us know. . Is there a learning curve? Yes. Then again, it is capable of some very complex comparisons. If anyone knows of a simpler drag and drop (or other more "intuitive") interface, that can handle the same complexity as Tidy Up, by all means let the rest of us know. . And I wish MacUpdate allowed two rating scales: one for how the software works and another for pricing/upgrade policy. . It is ridiculous that Tidy Up gets an overall half-star rating. It FREAKING WORKS and it WORKS WELL. I understand people can be unhappy with upgrade policies -- heck, I'm one of them. . But it would be nice to differentiate between how a piece of software functions as opposed to the pricing and upgrading policies. . Mercy. . -SB

    Their customer support is nonexistent. I completed two “Contact Us” requests which is the only way to contact them, and they have never responded. They also have no phone numbers and cannot find their address anywhere on the web. Don’t buy any of their products Incase you have any questions. Their tutorials are laughable.

    This application is not bad. However, I hate the tactics used by this company to force you to upgrade. I’m using version 4.1.25, and every time I open it, the stupid promo asking me to upgrade to version 5 pops up. It’s spam! I haven’t found a way to prevent it from showing up. In it, you are presented with only two options: download and buy now. My e-mail to customer support has gone without a reply. Yes, I know there is a version 5. Yes, I know I don’t want to upgrade. The on-your-face tactic has achieved one thing only …I am deleting it.

    I got this product last June and barely 6 months later their best offer is to give me a $5 credit towards a new version. Thanks but no thanks. I have other Apps that are just as effective. This marketing paradigm reminds me of some subscription apps where the subscription is marketed as an paid upgrade on a frequent basis.

    Just dl'ed 4.1.16, running Sierra, and this version keeps launching with a Photos database error. I restarted both the app and the OS, but the problem persists. Going back to 4.1.15 which works fine.

    Great Application that works really well and finds many dupes that others miss. I just purchased version 4 through MacUpdate so I haven't used all the features yet but will update my experience In coming months.

    Good utility to check for dupes and works as expected. The only thing I would like to see is a modern GUI. Compared to 10.10 and 10.11 apps it looks extremely outdated.

    They seem to have a mixup in their versions. Latest version claims to be 4.1.4, but according to the version info of the app, it still is 4.1.3.

    This is a great and very complete dupe finder. I keep a clean machine and didn't expect to find many duplicates. This utility found hundreds of duplicates. 95% of these dupes where images inside saved HTML web pages. Many instruction manuals I have are HTML documents. Images used within these documents are duplicates with different names. To delete any of them would result in HTML pages rendered with missing pictures. This utility did alert me to some very old HTML documents I no longer needed but I had to manually locate them to see the dates. Thanks ... Ken
