TuneSpan for iTunes overview

TuneSpan allows you to browse and span the media in your iTunes Library. To span your media means to distribute the files in your iTunes Library across multiple drives.

What does TuneSpan do?
TuneSpan helps you easily move the media files (Music, Movies, etc.) in your iTunes Library to multiple drives, avoiding the pitfalls of moving files manually. TuneSpan lets you browse and keep track of media in your iTunes Library on all drives, whether they're connected or not, and makes it clear to you what is and isn't currently available to play in iTunes. TuneSpan also offers sophisticated filtering options that aren't available in iTunes.

What’s new in version 1.4.1

Version 1.4.1:
Fixed:
  • Bug that would cause TuneSpan to stall if large folders or lots of folders were expanded in the Media Locations list
  • Bugs when displaying TV Show names and large episode numbers
  • Other minor bug fixes and improvements
  • Refresh Album Artwork" Tool for iTunes 12.4 and newer
  • Variety of interface bugs on macOS 10.13 High Sierra
Added:
  • Support for the next version of macOS
  • New Maximum File and Folder Name Length setting to Advanced Preferences
  • Support for Loved, Album Loved, Work, Movement Name, Movement Number, and Movement Count tags
Improved:
  • "Create Locations Playlists" Tool for iTunes
  • TuneSpan handles very large Spans and Restores. When Spanning and Restoring more than 5000 tracks, TuneSpan will automatically split it into separate batches to not stress the system too much at once. TuneSpan can automatically continue onto the next batch if the previous one was successful
  • TuneSpan handles Restores when the original location no longer exists. TuneSpan will now offer to restore to the current iTunes Media folder instead
  • First run experience. New users will now be prompted to opt-in to Analytics on the second run instead of the first
  • Work, Movement Name, and Year as Dynamic Tokens in the Custom Folder Organization Preferences
  • Removed "iTunes U" and changed "Books" to "Audiobooks" throughout TuneSpan. If you're using an older version of iTunes that still has iTunes U, they will be shown as Podcasts in TuneSpan
  • Replaced interface icons with icons from Primaries by Parakeet
  • Dropped support for older than OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan

This is an indispensable utility for anyone with a large music and/or video library. Please, pretty please, update it to work with Catalina.

I got this a while back for $1.99 but haven't used it yet. Am considering new Mac w/ smaller internal SSD so I need to migrate media to external drive. I see that this app hasn't been updated since Oct '15, and on Twitter dev admits he hasn't spent much time on app, had to create Applescript to deal with an album art bug in the app! So I'm a little wary of trusting the app now. Any idea how it compares to PowerTunes (last updated Oct '16)

Worth every cent!

I've been using this app regularly now for over a year & just wanted to comment on it.
I am very happy with this little gem as it does everything I need to keep my external drives for my media server organized & tracked. The UI is easy to use and makes the whole process work seamlessly on my Mac Pro running 4 internal drives.

I also like the way it tracks file name or other metadata issues within iTunes's program & offers to fix these errors before spanning them. It's a wonderful little app that does one thing & it does it very well indeed!

I wish more apps were like TuneSpan. It's easy to use, so easy that I could figure everything out without reading any of the documentation. It works fast and reliably. There is plenty of feedback about what it's doing, so I'm never left wondering what happened. And it looks good! I use TuneSpan to move my music files into my Dropbox (for backup purposes, seeing as I have 1 TB of storage now). I've also set up an automatic span so all I have to do is launch TuneSpan, and it does its thing without any intervention on my part. In the past, I've used TuneSpan to move large video files to an external drive when I ran out of space on my internal drive. I like that I can see where all my files are, and can easily restore everything back to its original location if need be (such as when I got a larger internal drive). Not everyone needs TuneSpan, but if you want to move your iTunes files around, it's the app to get.
