Dupe away seems to use more and more application memory until it crashes. I'm using a 2.8 ghz macbook pro with 16 gigs of memory
Does the application store the deleted items in ram? I don't see them in the trash
it found roughly 3800 dupes
Dupe Away uses scripts for the deletions, and when you have over about two thousand tracks, the performance can start to get slower. Using scripts is the safest method to help ensure that your iTunes Library is not put at risk. While there are some faster methods to do the deletions, those are not quite as safe and reliable. Your computer’s RAM, processor speed, and hard drive type will also have an effect on how fast the deletion process will take. As long as you don’t receive an error or a crash, then the program should still be working, and I would let Dupe Away keep running.
If you think Dupe Away is not working or appears to be making zero progress, please submit a support ticket, and we’ll be glad to help further.
