Editors' review

Tune Sweeper 4 harmonizes your iTunes library and hard drive by purging entries that aren't on your disk anymore and adding unlisted songs. Duplicates and missing tracks are annoying, but fixing the issue is made easier with Tune Sweeper. It can keep your library tidy in the background, or you can stage mass purges when the issue becomes too big to ignore. Updates to version 4 include Missing Artwork, Fix Track Info, and iTunes Statistics.

Pros

Easy on the eyes: Tune Sweeper 4's tabbed interface is easy to navigate, and its minimalist style complements the look of iTunes.

Search criteria: We could search for duplicates or missing files by track data, time difference, or media types. For example, we could exclude podcasts and TV shows from searches.

Groups: We could also include or ignore all Groups listed.

Cons

Not free: Unlike iTunes, Tune Sweeper 4 is shareware, not freeware, but it's free to try with limited functionality (duplicates can't be removed).

Bottom Line

Tune Sweeper 4 isn't free, but at just under 20 bucks it might be a bargain, especially if your library is big. If you've let things go too far and now have tons of duplicates and missing songs in your ever-growing, all-important iTunes library, Tune Sweeper 4 can help you clean up the mess.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Tune Sweeper 3.08. The trial version has limited functionality.

    "The very best software for managing your library"

    July 11, 2014   |   By loretta.larson

    Version: Tune Sweeper 4.01

    Pros

    Quick and easy to use! Works perfectly.

    Cons

    None that I discovered.

    Summary

    My iTunes library was a complete mess with tons of duplicates and broken tracks. I literally spent hours trying so sort my library out, without much success. Finally, I came across Tune Sweeper which removed hundreds of duplicates and broken tracks in less than half an hour. It also downloaded iTunes album art to tracks which didn't have any and fixed a load of tracks with missing track info. Very happy to have found this amazing app.

    "I absolutely love it!!"

    November 12, 2013   |   By Fagustin

    Version: Tune Sweeper 3.07

    Pros

    Apart from the great results and its ease of use, it has a nice interface. Something you don't see every day with certain products. But the guys who made Tune Sweeper really know what they are doing. I think they thought of me when they were creating it, and it delivers above and beyond what is promised.

    This program is completely safe, it will clean up your iTunes library by removing duplicates, however it lets you back up the tracks you're deleting from iTunes in case you change your mind later.

    Cons

    i really did not find any

    Summary

    When I first used Tune Sweeper I realized how many songs were in my playlist but were not even on my computer anymore. They showed up on my playlist but where not even on my hard drive. I would have never noticed this. If not for Tune Sweeper of course, which deleted these broken tracks quickly.

    It will also quickly find tracks on your hard disk that are not currently in your iTunes library. I had music on my computer which I was not able to find because I had forgotten where I had placed it, I didn't remember the folder I had put it, which means music was not yet in my playlist. But when I used Tune Sweeper this music was added with great ease. It was weird. I absolutely love it. I highly recommend anyone to use the software. You can tell they put a-lot of work into it. It works great and gives amazing results. If you can't tell by now, I highly recommend using Tune Sweeper.

    "Very effective..Absolutely brilliant!!"

    November 12, 2013   |   By williamB12

    Version: Tune Sweeper 3.07

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    none found

    Summary

    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.

    "Misleading...it is only free to download, NOT use."

    September 30, 2013   |   By epaque

    Version: Tune Sweeper 3.07

    Pros

    it identifies copies for free. that is all

    Cons

    Itunes already identifies copies. Tunesweeper misleads you into wasting your time to download the software, only to discover that you have to pay to remove copies. This is a sort of bait and switch internet tactic that has been going on far too long.

    Summary

    Do NOT waste your time with tunesweeper unless you are prepared to pay for the full version. Whether the paid version works, or not, matters little because of the misleading marketing.
    NO NO NO, tunesweeper.

    Pros

    Tune sweeper is excellent software that easily locates and cleans away all duplicates from my iTunes library. It quickly gets rid of broken links within my iTunes collection with just one mouse click and cleanup my iTunes library with no trouble. Tune sweeper also locates tracks on my hard drive which are not presently within my iTunes library.

    Tune sweeper is the perfect application for cleaning up iTunes and it is less expensive as well. It's the high quality duplicate removing software for iTunes and it helped me maintain order by smartly finding copies and securely eliminating them from my music archives.

    Cons

    absolutely nothing

    Summary

    I've experimented with all other sorts of iTunes cleaner however this is definitely the very best I've found. Tune sweeper is application that does exactly what it guarantees to do and does it perfectly.
    I would recommend this to everyone!

    Pros

    Does the job
    Not expensive like others
    Gives you a chance to check before starting the clean

    Cons

    Summary

    I tried several others before choosing this one.
    One, R****, was widely advertised and around $40.
    I saw poor reviews of R**** on CNet so changed midstream and bought this. Could not have chosen better!

    "Tune sweeper is advertised as free but it isn't"

    February 04, 2013   |   By organicdesign

    Version: Tune Sweeper 3.06

    Pros

    Works fast at finding Duplicates

    Cons

    Will not remove duplicates unless you pay.

    Summary

    This app may be wotrth the money but I won't purchase anything that deceptively draws you into buying it. Now my free version of Revo uninstaller (really free)will erase any vestige of this bait and switch app.

    "Great iTunes duplicate cleaner"

    January 30, 2013   |   By Micka_B

    Version: Tune Sweeper 3.06

    Pros

    I've amassed a huge music collection, which has over time become a mess, with loads of songs duplicated and tracks giving that missing file error. I didn't feel like spending hours going through it manually, so I downloaded Tune Sweeper to speed things up. The program worked great, it went through my entire iTunes library in 10 minutes cleaning up duplicates and broken tracks.

    Cons

    I had no problems in using Tune Sweeper.
