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.
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.
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).
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.
