Get rid of dependent files

Julian Pawlowski shared this question 10 years ago

How do I get rid of those dependent files if iTunes was not able to update it's database in the first step? I don't want TuneSpan Helper to create those links all the time but iTunes to have the new path directly. Is there a way to ensure this without restoring the files to it's old place and moving them again?

Sadly, it is NOT possible get rid of all dependent spans, I really wish there was.

TuneSpan is only able to fully span mp3 file, and not all mp3 files at that.

For more information please read the TuneSpan Help in app or at:

Specifically sections: "How does TuneSpan work?" and "What does dependent mean?"


TuneSpan 0.9.5 beta has just been released and has an all new spanning process!

All files can be fully spanned so there are no more dependent tracks!

TuneSpan will offer to update all of your dependent tracks on launch.

Check it out at


TuneSpan 0.9.6 beta has just been released which completely removes TuneSpan Helper and will uninstall it from anyone system who already has it.

Dependently spanned tracks are a thing of the past!
