Review: Tune Sweeper 4 iTunes Cleaning App

Tune Sweeper 4 promises to be a one-stop fixer upper for iTunes libraries. It claims that it can:

  • Find duplicates
  • Download missing artwork
  • Remove missing tracks from an iTunes library
  • Find tracks on your Mac that aren’t in your library
  • Fix incorrect tags
  • Show you which tracks are Apple Music tracks
  • Display statistics about your iTunes library, and your listening habits

While Tune Sweeper does most of these, it is a real laggard.

  1. Kirk, do you have a recommended iTunes cleanup/repair utility? (It sounds like Tunes Sweeper isn’t it.)

    I have had the track files in my library duplicated, e.g., I have two files for a song:

    01 Only If for a Night 1.m4a
    01 Only If for a Night.m4a

    There’s no duplicated entry in iTunes, just in the file system.

    Any idea what causes this, and (more importantly) how to repair it?

    Thanks!
