"Out of Memory" Warning

When TuneUp is performing heavy processing, it may, from time to time, run out of the system memory it requires to run properly. When this happens, you will receive this error:


If you receive this error, TuneUp has to quit.  

When you restart TuneUp, the application will cycle through a few steps to get you back to where you were when the memory issue occurred. If you continue to have memory issues (especially using Clean), we recommend that you try and drag and drop fewer tracks, as this will reduce the amount of memory required.  If you have a very large collection, we recommend you Clean it in steps - this is a best practice that we believe works quite well: Step by Step: Cleaning You Entire Collection.

To Avoid Memory Problems:

  • Don't run too many other applications while running TuneUp
  • Try dragging 1000 tracks or fewer at a time (dragging all songs by an artist at a time works well)
  • Only run one process in TuneUp at a time.  For example, don't start a search for clean info in Clean and then search for duplicates in DeDuper at the same time.
