Editors' Review

+

Auslogics Duplicate File Finder identifies duplicate images, media files, archives, and even programs and lets you choose which to delete and which to keep. A wizard-like process walks you through each step, which not only makes Duplicate File Finder easy to use but also helps reduce errors.

Pros

Rescue Center: The modular Rescue Center can restore files from backups or system restore points, and not just for Duplicate File Finder but other Auslogics software, too.

Programs: Duplicate File Finder can identify program files, including executables, and remove unneeded ones.

Exceptions: We could configure Duplicate File Finder to ignore files over or under a certain size and add files to an ignore list.

Cons

Ads on the toolbar: The toolbar's Advanced menu links to other software, as does the Check System Health button.

Groups: The software groups duplicates together for easy mass deletion, but it can be difficult to know which group to keep and which to purge.

Bottom Line

Easy-to-use Duplicate File Finder did a good job of distinguishing actual duplicate files from close matches and false positives. While it's a bit ad-heavy compared to some similar freeware, Auslogics Duplicate File Finder does its job well.

"It couldn't find any duplicates"

March 10, 2016  |  By rudolf323

2016-03-10 06:10:16  |  By rudolf323

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 5.2.0

Pros

Easy to use, good design

Cons

Can't find duplicate images

Summary

I have 940,000 image files, Picasa showed a lot of duplicates, it was so laggy that it was showing 'not responding' all the time, so I decided to use Auslogics Duplicate finder - It was just a waste of time, 13 hours or more. It shows 0 duplicates found.

"Beware of crapware"

January 18, 2016  |  By connectr

2016-01-18 20:29:03  |  By connectr

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 5.2.0

Pros

Seems to work fast at finding duplicate files

Cons

Loaded crapware without asking

Summary

I will not run this again, which means I will not upgrade to "pro" version. If you load crapware on my machine, I unload your program. Period.

"You can still select one folder to delete files from"

May 27, 2015  |  By AnnaAus

2015-05-27 05:15:06  |  By AnnaAus

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 4.3.0

Pros

When duplicates search is complete, you can review the duplicates, look at the folders they are located in, right-click on a folder and choose "Select duplicates in this folder" or "Select all duplicates EXCEPT in this folder" - nice features that can help with cleanup.

Cons

Can't think of any

"This product was better before the update"

May 14, 2015  |  By jennyOL

2015-05-14 05:42:22  |  By jennyOL

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 4.3.0

Pros

It does find the duplicates.

Cons

You are not allowed to say "delete all duplicates in this folder".
Why take that functionality out? Now you can "delete all duplicates of same TYPE", "duplicates in all groups"... but not not "all duplicated in an identified folder".
This would have been OK if they had allowed you to define an "originals - folder" as in "this is the folder(s) I am comparing everything else against"... but there is no such thing.

Summary

If you have an older version (v 3.xxxxx), keep it.
If you want a decent duplicate finder, look for Auslogics v 3.xxx.
But do skip this one.

"Newer version forces you to check other software"

October 25, 2014  |  By davethecfre

2014-10-25 17:10:36  |  By davethecfre

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 4.0.2

Pros

Ability to play around with file size

Cons

Installs bloatware if you don't pay attention when installing.

Forcing you to go to their website or close program after it runs. Can't go back and rerun a query with different parameters.

Summary

Best to skip. Previous versions were much better. I have uninstalled it.

"NagWare--but it is functional"

July 30, 2014  |  By meinthesun

2014-07-30 09:57:33  |  By meinthesun

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 3.5.4

Pros

Actually did find duplicates.

Cons

1. Nags you to buy other software (Nagware)
2. Be careful! Requests security permissions it shouldn't need--potentially Malware
3. Did not uninstall on first try.

Summary

It works, but then it gives (misleading?) prompts that try to get you buy other software. In my experience, apps that do this are malware or try to lead the user to install malware from unverified sources. Uninstalling.
