This post is not so much iPhone-related but more for maintaining your Mac. If you’re using a Mac you may be losing precious hard drive space to duplicate files. These could be MP3s, pictures, downloadable files, etc. Whatever the case, finding each duplicate file can be a virtual pain in the rear. That’s where the Mac software Tidy Up! comes into play.
Here’s a description of some notable TidyUp features:
With Tidy Up! you can search for duplicate files and packages; by the owner application, content, type, creator, extension, time modified, time created, name, label, visibility and date/age. You can also search by the tag, duration and bit installments of MP3 and AAC sound files and EXIF metadata* , search the contents of the iPhoto, Aperture, iTunes, iPod databases and Mail mailboxes, and synchronize deletions with iPhoto, Mail and iTunes.
Tidy Up! allows you to search for duplicate folders; by name, date modified, date created, label visibility, empty folders, their contents and more.
If you have a large photo collection or you have tonnes of MP3s, duplicate files can be a problem. Tidy Up! makes it simple to find and delete these files. I had the chance to try Tidy Up! on my Mac and I was able to free up some much needed space on my hard drive (I really do need to upgrade from my 160GB). The program was fairly straightforward and easy to use. Check out a couple screens below:
