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.

"Does the job."

July 02, 2013  |  By drew185

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

Does a thorough search and conveniently lists the duplicate files. Then with a push of the button, the duplicates are checked and ready for your next action. They can be deleted outright or saved to the trash file in case they are needed before final removal.

Cons

None that I noticed.

Summary

I would recommend this product.

"Horrible in the extreme"

June 26, 2013  |  By Lerianis6

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

None, it doesn't even find duplicate files correctly.

Cons

Doesn't find duplicate files correctly, says that there are duplicate files that don't exist, and only searches 30 duplicate files unless you pay for the paid version.

Summary

Stay away, this product is worse than useless, there are much better programs with the functionality that this program illegitimately says it has for free out there.

"Good program for the price (or lack of one)"

April 27, 2013  |  By Midhiel

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

Easy to use
Rescue Center is a convenient safety net
Free!

Cons

Slow when searching a lot of files (to be expected, I guess)
No log of what has been found/deleted
Doesn't delete files from the same folders
Doesn't detect all duplicates - sometimes misses the obvious ones

Summary

My computer's a bit of an organizational nightmare, after it's crashed a couple of times and I've had to back it up again and again. My music was the worst - most of it was in the Music folder, then copied again with more things into iTunes Music, then copied again with still more things into iTunes Music>Music. I had up to four or five copies of some things. It was ridiculous. This program cleaned most of that up.

It wasn't flawless, as it doesn't always delete from the same folder. Say you've got the same files in A, B, and C - sometimes it deletes duplicates from A, other times from B, sometimes from C. So that's going to take a while to organize. And it misses some really obvious duplicates, too. I've got more than one folder of the same album in the artist's folder, but it didn't detect any duplicates at all. It also didn't detect the duplicates when they were in the same folder. Strange.

Overall, though, this was a pretty neat little program. It cleared up a good 32gb of space for me! Considering it's free, I think it's definitely worth a try. I'd imagine most people's folders aren't as messy as mine, anyway.

"Quick, accurate"

April 14, 2013  |  By mwcasey

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

Accurate file identification

Cons

Doesn't do Office files as an option.

Summary

Does what it does well. Needs to provide more file selection options. Could also use a filter for files used by multiple applications duplicated in each program location.

"Will not by anything from this company."

April 09, 2013  |  By philipjanze

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

I have no pros

Cons

Auslogic put a toolbar on my browsers that I am unable to remove from Chrome even after uninstalling their program. My opion is this is barely better than malware in their tactics to make a sale.

"Fantastic Application"

March 06, 2013  |  By pkr1

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

Easy,free & reliable

Cons

In the form "Select Search Criteria (4/4)" if you happen to press
"Select" combo box in order to "Select all duplicates in each group" automatically duplicate files are checked. But 2 files from the test folder and the other 2 files from the test1 folder. It is optional if you do not press "Clean up junk files" button in the very last result form.

Summary

"Auslogics Duplicate File Finder" Version 2.5.1.0 is free for personal use.

I deliberately created two folders test and test1 in C drive. I did copied 5 image files in test and test1 folders respectively. I did invoked "Auslogics Duplicate File Finder" application. I did checked test and test1 check boxes respectively. I did selected look for these type files only radio button and checked Images check box. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (2/4)" by pressing next button. I did not check any check box in this form. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (3/4)" by pressing next button. I did not check any check box in this form. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (4/4)" by pressing next button. I did selected "To Recycle Bin" radio button. I did pressed Search button. All the 10 image files found in test and test1 folders got listed along with a check box adjacent to the file names. I manually did checked the check box of the duplicate files that need to be deleted. I did pressed the combo box "Delete Selected Files". I got the alert message in a dialog about the intended action. I did pressed OK button and the deleted files were moved to "Recycle Bin". And action results were displayed in the immediate form.

"Useless application - should be removed from CNET"

March 02, 2013  |  By gsj1

 |  Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

Pros

Did find duplicates but with multiple issues. See cons section for details.

Cons

Auslogic Duplicate File Finder v2.5.1.0 was able to find duplicate files, however, there were multiple issues with the product itself. Looks like the product was written by a high school student over a weekend.

1. No way to pause search once it starts.
2. No way to save output of duplicate file search.
3. No logs of what is done by the user or the software for later analysis.
4. Once you complete duplicate file search, and click on another button to see what options are available, you'll loose all your search output and have to state search all over again! Totally asinine.
5. If you select duplicate files and choose "Delete Selected Files->To Rescue Center", it removed files from the wrong folder and didn't save files in Rescue Center as stated.
6. After deleting duplicates, software searches for junk files, however, doesn't list the file it asks to clean up. Again totally juvenile.
