Developer's description:Tidy Up offers you the possibility to clean up your Mac’s disk by making sure there are no duplicates. The application can compare different types of files, highlights the ones that are holding up space unnecessarily, and then helps you delete them without too much hustle.
Tidy Up 5 is completely re-engineered, modern, efficient and totally customizable. Below are just a few of the major new features.
Supports Lightroom: it is now possible to search and collect duplicates directly in the Lightroom library.
Multiple libraries support: capability to search in the supported apps (Lightroom, Photos, iTunes, Mail, Aperture and iPhoto) by comparing multiple libraries of the same app with multiple libraries of different apps of the same kind (for example 2 Photos libraries and 3 Lightroom libraries).
Added the support to hard links: search for hard links or exclude them from the search and replace the found items with hard links.
Search for unique items gains strength: it’s now possible to use multiple criteria to search for unique items (items that have no duplicates).
Possibility to handle the found items at the administrator level: just allow the installation of the privileged tool and do the cleaning job. This is particularly useful to clean up old Time Machine backups.
Some of the new features are:
• New user interface.
• Search for duplicate folders by content.
• Search only in the preferred playlists and albums.
• The priority option.
• Compare only the representation data of the images.
• Result shown as a grid or list.
• New pre-defined smart baskets which show the files by kind.
…and many more!
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.
Tidy Up is fast, it doesn't index the scanned volumes, so you don't waste additional precious space. With its multitasking capability, you can do more searches at a time and take advantage of the latest Macintosh computers and operating systems.
Tidy Up comes with a search mode called Basic Mode*, which includes more than 90 pre-defined searches. For a customized strategy, you can opt for Strategy Wizard, which based on your choices creates the appropriate criteria with which to search for duplicates and a new "Smart Basket" that will contain the items to be removed, or the manual method, the most customized method offered.
Tidy Up has a security system that assures you will keep at least one file of the duplicate group on your disk, the ability to undo copied and moved items and the ability to restore trashed items as long as the trash is not emptied, even after a restart of the computer.
Tidy Up offers a full-size preview of the most commonly used files such as: audio, media, text, pdf, graphics, fonts and more... and Quick Look like in the Finder (only from OS X 10.5).
One of the most interesting features of Tidy Up is the capability to separate, for quick and easy organization, found items using custom criteria via "Smart Baskets." It also includes the possibility to choose, from the items belonging to the supported applications, a specific album , playlist or mailbox*.
Tidy Up allows you to trash, move, replace the moved and trashed items with aliases or symbolic links*, burn, assign colored Finder labels and export into html and text files all found items.
Tidy Up is fully customizable and allows you to create your preferred workspace.
