Araxis Find Duplicate Files for Mac quickly locates and removes files you don't need on your computer, saving disc space. Notable for its speed, drag-and-drop functions, and easy-to-use interface, this program will be of use to you if you have a large number of files cluttering your hard drive. The only major downside is that it's a premium app.
The trial version of Araxis Find Duplicate Files for Mac comes with no limitations in terms of features, but works only for seven days. You can either drag and drop folders for searching or manually add them via a Finder window. During testing, we used a folder containing a large music collection, and the search process completed in less than five minutes, which seemed quick enough considering the large number of files. The program returns results in a lower window and displays them using a color-coded system where the duplicates are listed next to each other in a single color. A drop-down menu allows you to filter the results by showing only duplicates and not originals, among other options -- a handy feature. Additional options let you select the shown duplicate files for deleting or moving to separate folders.
If you have a large collection of unsorted files containing unneeded copies, you can confidently use Araxis Find Duplicate Files for Mac to locate them. What makes this program special are its useful menu views, which allow you not only to delete duplicates, but also to better organize your file system.
