Sort and organize media files with Mediapurge


When it comes to cleaning up large music collections, Mediapurge can be especially helpful because of its ability to convert audio files to another format. While it cannot convert image files, Mediapurge can sort files and give meaningful file names. When it comes to finding duplicates, Mediapurge only finds duplicate photos if the images are very similar. As for synchronizing a collection, it is a painstaking process that involves creating lists. Despite its quirks, Mediapurge can save you time and effort with large file collections by replacing many manual operations with a small number of mouse clicks.
