Media Sweeper is an easy-to-use software program made to help you identify and remove duplicate audio tracks from the Windows Media Player library. It shows detailed information about each file and organizes items into different groups.
Hassle-free installation and intuitive interface
After a brief and uneventful installation, you are greeted by a user-friendly interface made from a common-looking window with a well-structured layout, where you can begin by specifying the criteria to take into account when searching for duplicates: artist, album, track number, track count, or track difference. You can make a combination out of any number of these factors.
View and remove duplicates seamlessly
Once the scanner is over, you can check out groups of original files and their duplicates, as well as study data surrounding the track name, artist and album before deciding which items you want to get rid of. A basic search function is put at your disposal for this list, in case you're looking for particular songs.
Furthermore, Media Sweeper can be asked to make an automatic selection by highest or lowest quality, longest duration, latest or oldest added, or latest played. Plus, you can create backups before proceeding with the deletion, in case you want to restore files afterward, as well as ask the tool to automatically run at every Windows startup until further notice.

No error dialogs popped up in our testing, and the program didn't freeze or crash. It carried out search tasks swiftly while remaining light on system resources consumption. All in all, Media Sweeper facilitates a fast and straightforward method for removing duplicate tracks from the Windows Media Player library, and it can be handled by anyone with ease.
