How to Clean Up iTunes Library
Your iTunes becomes clumsy and in a mess due to too many duplicate songs? Have a big music collection, but many songs miss ID 3 information, like artist, album, track number, genre, and more. Even though iTunes can download this kind of information automatically, mismatching happens from time to time. And album artwork, the important factor for better visual effect and management, is totally missing.
