by Jenefey Aaron   Updated on 2019-07-25 / Update for  iTunes Tips

Your iTunes music library is a large folder and it becomes bigger and bigger with growing number of iTunes duplicates that you don't even know. My advice: check and clean up your iTunes music library on a regular basis and make sure to remove iTunes duplicates.

Here's also an Mac iTunes Duplicate Remover (officially named iTunes Music Cleanup) which simplifies the process of removing iTunes duplicates on Mac (including OS X 10.10 Yosemite and 10.9 Mountain Lion). It will find and remover duplicated items in your iTunes library.

Note: If you want to remove iTunes duplicates on Windows, choose the Windows version of this iTunes duplicate remover.

1. Load the iTunes music files

Once you run the iTunes duplicate remover, you will find that the default mode is "iTunes Music Clean". Click "Start Scan" and all music in your iTunes library will be loaded to the program.

Of course you don't need to find duplicated items by yourself, but if you want to know what's in your iTunes music folder and move this folder, you'll need to figure out the iTunes music library location on Mac first.

2.Sort out and remove duplicated songs in iTunes

After importing music to the program, the program will sort out duplicated songs and unidentified songs.

Click "Duplicated Songs" and you will see all the repeated items. Then choose one song in the file tray and all files of the same song will show up in the right column. Check those you want to get rid of and click "Clear Duplicate". The duplicated item will then be cleared from your iTunes library.
