Step One: Search for duplicate items

It helps to know in advance which items you will be targeting as part of your search strategy. Are you trying to clean up a disc with a particular file type in mind? Do you want to remove empty folders? Do you want to clean the database of one of Apple’s applications?

Below is how to start.

Simple Mode

  1. Choose the search from the Smart Searches section.
  2. The locations where to search will be automatically chosen. If you need to search in different locations, click on the Edit button.
  3. Click on the search button.
Advanced Mode

  1. Select the criteria to perform the search.
  2. Choose the location(s) where you want to search.
  3. Click on the search button.

Once the search has started, you’ll see a search progress indicator and, if there are items that match the chosen search’s criteria, Tidy Up will show the items to process.
