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.
Most computer users create and download different files on a daily basis. As time goes by, hard disks get packed with documents, pictures, music, videos, and other files. And then suddenly there is almost no free disk space left! But that is only partly true. Most people are unaware of how many duplicate files there are cluttering their hard disks. All those songs that have been downloaded twice, holiday photos uploaded multiple times, documents copied and pasted, so that you have them in two folders at once. All that wasted disk space can be reclaimed by simply deleting duplicate files.
