Tune Sweeper on the PC uses the Windows Search service to find music on your computer. Therefore, Tune Sweeper can only search for music in locations that are included in the Windows search settings.
It is likely that external hard drives and USB drives are not included in the Windows Search configuration. You can, however, add those drives to Windows Search:Download Tune Sweeper Now
When using the "Not in iTunes" feature, if Tune Sweeper does not find your music on an external / USB drive, it is likely that the drive is not indexed by Windows. This will prevent Tune Sweeper from finding your music.
To resolve this, open Tune Sweeper > View > Preferences > Not in iTunes.
Here, click "Add folder". Navigate to your external or USB drive, then click OK.
Now you can close preferences and run the "Not in iTunes" feature. Tune Sweeper should now return tracks found in your external drive.
Alternatively, you can index your external drives in on Windows. This will also allow Tune Sweeper to find and scan files on the external drives.
