Remove iTunes duplicates and fix track data.

Overview

Tune Sweeper is a powerful tool for cleaning your iTunes library. It makes finding and removing duplicate tracks from your iTunes library a breeze. Tune Sweeper can also be used to download missing track information and artwork to your tracks.

Tune Sweeper searches your iTunes library for groups of duplicate tracks based upon the selected search criteria that can be modified to suit your needs. You can then use Tune Sweeper’s built in ‘keep selection preferences’ to automatically select which duplicate tracks should be removed based upon the preference selected. Alternatively, you can manually mark individual tracks for removal or ignore whole groups. With a click of a button, the duplicates marked for removal are removed from iTunes and sent to your trash. Tune Sweeper can also be used to identify and remove tracks that are listed in iTunes but are no longer on your Mac. These are tracks that display an exclamation mark when attempting to play them in iTunes. Tune Sweeper can even be used to scan your Mac for tracks that are not in iTunes and then add them all to iTunes with just a single click.

This latest release of Tune Sweeper also includes the additional functionality to download missing track information and album artwork to your iTunes library. Tune Sweeper uses a proven digital fingerprinting technique to identify your tracks and download the appropriate track information to them. Once saved, your iTunes library will automatically be updated with the new information.

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!

Seems to work well. It trashed many duplicates, but found a bunch more after shutting down both iTunes, and Tune Sweeper. i know I selected many of them on the first try. Some easy to add features I'd like: I'd like a preference where instead of selecting a file with a location path vs. a file that needs to be downloaded, it picks the download to be deleted.. I'd like to be able to rearrange the columns. I would have moved the location columns left, so I could see then end of the file name. I'd like to bbe able to see the whole file name to pick the proper file to delete. I' d like to pick the columns that are shown or not. I'd like a Size column.

After 30 minutes of fiddling with it, still simply does not work. "no duplicate tracks were found!" even as I'm sitting here looking right at them. Don't make the same mistake I made, save your money.

The number of duplicate tracks found depend on how you have setup your duplicate search criteria in Tune Sweeper. You can make this more restrictive as detailed here https://www.wideanglesoftware.com/tunesweeper/help/searching.php
This functionality is included in the free download version, so you can work out whether the software meets your reequipments before committing to a purchase.

Tune Sweeper is fully compatible with Mac El Capitan and Sierra. All OSX versions from 10.8 onwards are supported. The free download version should allow you to work out weather the software works on your Mac before committing to a purchase.

I was overwhelmed by the amount of duplicate songs I had in my iTunes library. It would have taken me a lifetime to go through and delete them all. Luckily, I found Tune Sweeper which is excellent! I firstly downloaded the free demo, to see if the software was worth investing in. I was pleasantly surprised when the sweeper had scanned through my iTunes library in seconds. It returned a list of my duplicate songs, laid out nicely in groups. At this point, I purchased the software because I wanted to remove the duplicates. Tune Sweeper gives you the option to set a preference of songs to keep, and will delete the rest automatically for you! This is something I couldn't have done using iTunes, and I was able to keep all of my highest quality songs, and deleted my low quality duplicates. Overall, this software is amazing, and I haven't even explored all of the features yet! (you can download missing artwork for your tracks, fix track information etc..). I would highly recommend Tune Sweeper to anyone who needs to clean up their iTunes library, or make more space on their computer!

This is an amazing Application, I’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.

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.
