Displays files in iTunes Media folder not in iTunes track library

OS X 10.8 or later. This application will list the file paths of the files in your designated "iTunes Media" folder which are not in iTunes' track library. Additionally, you can select a different parent folder and its contents will be compared to the iTunes library. Includes options to Add a selection of found files to iTunes, move them to the Trash, and export a text file listing the file paths.

See the video on YouTube.

Action shot:

Music Folder Files Not Added in action
