Quickly & Easily Speed Up Your Mac!
Tidy Up by Hyperbolic Software has released what I consider to be the easiest-to-use and most intuitive duplicate file removal software currently available, exclusively for Mac users.
The difference between Tidy Up and other methods is that the entire process is easy, fast, and secure.
Take a look to see what I mean…

I was passed along an e-mail today that I should consider a piece of software called ‘Dupe Guru’. So, I installed the software on my Macbook to compare it’s features to the current #1 pick on this site, Tidy Up.
What I first found, was that Dupe Guru took an awful long time to download. I think there must have been problems with it’s server, because the internet speeds in my office reach 50 mbps, and the download took nearly an hour.
But irregardless, the speed of the download isn’t what’s important.
When I first booted the software up, there was a request for a donation. I understand that this software is considered “Fairware,” which basically means it’s free to try, but they ask that you pay a recommended amount. I found this to be unnecessary to occur right when you boot the program up. You should wait to actually let the user try the software before asking for any type of donation.
The interface was easy to use and straight-forward. When I began to attempt to try the more advanced features that I’m used to when I use Tidy Up, I found that features were missing.
Most notably, I wanted to find music files that were not identical in file name, but were similar in length and content. Tidy Up can match songs in this way, which is one of it’s most impressive features, while Dupe Guru wasn’t able to match songs in this way. That left me pretty disappointed.
There were duplicate mp3s that were not removed, because the searching capabilities were not where they needed to be.
The price of Dupe Guru is slightly cheaper, but in my humble opinion, TidyUp is the better option, and I’ll continue to recommend it to friends and visitors to this site.
