Mac Tip: Find Duplicates in your iTunes Library

Apple LogoSince it’s summer and we’re all spending some time at the beach or lake or even lounging on the deck relaxing and enjoying some music, here’s another iTunes tip for you. If you have added music from various sources, it’s possible you have some duplicates in your library – I know I do. To find and remove those duplicates, open iTunes, click on File and scroll down to Display Duplicates. Highlight the tunes you would like to remove and select Edit – Delete. Just a note, play both tunes before removing to be sure they are the same song.

    I used a standalone free tool called CopyTrans TuneTastic in order to find and remove my iTunes duplicate.

    The difference is that it identifies which track is duplicated and which track is the original and should remain within my iTunes library. The native iTunes duplicate finder does not make any difference between original and duplicate tracks.
