Editors' Review

Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is a basic program that allows users to find and delete duplicate files taking up valuable space on their hard drives. This is a helpful utility for users who find themselves with limited disk space and can't figure out why.

The program's interface is simple and extremely easy to use. Users simply select the folders they want to search in, set the matching criteria and file types, and click the Scan button. The program displays a list of duplicate files, allowing users to select and delete those that are not needed. That's really all there is to it. The program was quite intuitive and we didn't particularly need any guidance to use it, but we were disappointed by the lack of Help file. Although there is a Help menu, it leads to the publisher's Web site on which there is only a four-question list of frequently asked questions. This oversight is really our single complaint about the program; it's a bit of a one-trick pony, but it is quick and effective. In fact, we had run a similar program before testing Auslogics Duplicate File Finder that had already deleted the vast majority of our duplicate files, but this program found a few more. Color us impressed.

Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is free. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users; even those with limited system maintenance experience will find it easy to use.

"Excellent, rapid searching for duplicate files"

May 04, 2012  |  By Harry Hunter

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

Rapid searches and accurate matches. Simple and reversible removal of duplicates, provided one does not empty the Recycle Bin too soon.

Cons

The option to automatically remove duplicates is flawed because the program does not automatically sort the duplicates' folders so that all duplicates in two folders will not end up as single files in one folder, but can be split up between two or more folders. Thus, if you are removing backups of photos, for example, they will not necessarily end up in the intended folder. You can only choose to auto remove files but have no control over the folder containing the master copy which the program will keep.

Summary

With a few, minor limitations this is an excellent, duplicate file finder and remover

"Great for cleaning up duplicate files"

May 02, 2012  |  By tjt620

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

Easy to use
fast for finding files
can delete multiply files at once
can search multiply drives at once
FREE!!!!

Cons

No cons as far as I can see it's a good program that allows you to delete duplicate file and will even search across multipy hardrives for duplicate file something many programs willnot do.

Summary

Reasonably fast, thorough and with that all-important backup option, Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is well worth checking out if your hard drive is running out of space. Better file management is just a click away with this program and free for single personal use it's a great way to get yourself organized.

"Did not work!"

April 23, 2012  |  By ekertin

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

None. It wants me to pay!

Cons

Simply did not work. Maybe after 10 years I've forgotten how to operate a PC. Every time I tried to click on anything, a button, a duplicate file, or a menu, it told me this operation available only in the pro version. Not very free.

Summary

CNET is my go to for all freeware. But someone goofed this up, or I got a corrupt copy, or I just don't know. I have used other duplicate freeware without a hitch.

"Not my cup of duplicate finder"

April 11, 2012  |  By Justicegustine

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

Free
Scanned folders quick
Uninstalls easy

Cons

Clunky UI. Select one set of dupes in one path, then click another path and the first one de-selects.

I wanted to compare one folder of files from an old thumbdrive against everything on my PC no matter what folder it may be in, compare and let me choose what to delete.

Summary

I'll put more info into my searches. Might find something over in Source Forge.

"Great duplicate file finder"

March 20, 2012  |  By johnson.md

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

Finds duplicates quickly
Easy to use

Cons

When there are many duplicates, the process of deleting is slow if you don't want random selection of one from each group. A better option would be to be able to select all duplicates in directory and all sub directories of that directory. There is an option to select all duplicates in a directory, but it ignores subdirectories. An option to turn off notification that you are about to delete files would be nice.

Summary

One of best duplicate file finders. Minor improvements in user interaction would be nice.

"Not so hot"

March 02, 2012  |  By paul_saute

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.2.1

Pros

easy to use
easy to install
easy to uninstall

Cons

I ran Auslogics Duplicate File Finder and Duplicate Cleaner on the same pair of folders. Auslogics found no duplicates and Duplicate Cleaner found about 40 pairs of duplicates using the same criteria.

I was NOT impressed.

Summary

I don't think Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is worth the effort.
