Tidy Up 5 aims to keep your Mac clear of du­pli­cate and un­nec­es­sary files by find­ing such files and mak­ing them eas­ier to delete. It does so from a gor­geous in­ter­face, with smoothly an­i­mated tran­si­tions, and hon­est in­for­ma­tion about why a search is tak­ing time. There are two modes: Sim­ple im­age search finds pic­tures that are iden­ti­cal; in Ad­vanced mode you can hone in on date, lo­ca­tion, even cam­era used. Searches are quite quick. When done, Tidy Up pro­vides de­tailed sug­ges­tions for re­moval, show­ing the path to each file with pre­views.

The prob­lem isn’t what it does, but the dam­age you could do with it. It doesn’t re­move du­pli­cate images in Pho­tos, but marks them for later re­moval. It will hap­pily re­move files from Time Ma­chine back­ups, which can make them per­ma­nently un­us­able, and it can wreak havoc on apps too. It’s a great house­keep­ing tool, but use with cau­tion!
