Tune Sweeper crashes or freezes when Grouping.
If you have many duplicates in your iTunes library the 'Grouping' process may take some time to complete. While this is under way - the spinning wheel animation will indicate that Tune Sweeper is working.
If the spinning wheel stops for a long period of time or Tune Sweeper crashes completely, Tune Sweeper may have run out of memory. You can help Tune Sweeper by performing the following actions:-
Close all other applications before running Tune Sweeper
Try and limit the number of duplicates Tune Sweeper has to display at any one time by initially specifying a more strict duplicate search criteria. That is, select all possible meta data elements to the search, ( e.g. Artist, Album, Track #, Track Count and Time ). This will make Tune Sweeper only find the exact matches of duplicates which may be a smaller list. Remove those duplicates and then repeat the search with a less strict search criteria.
We are constantly improving Tune Sweeper and we are looking at ways to improve Tune Sweepers performance in this error. Updates are free for registered users of Tune Sweeper.
