    "This program managed to clearn my cluttered desktop."

    August 19, 2010   |   By plug_and_pray

    Version: Clone Tools 2.0

    Pros

    I got a structured view of folders I had selected to check.
    I could move all contents in a folders who had duplicate files to a folder I decided to be a master folder.

    Cons

    It took some time to learn the advanced functions.
    The program costs money to be really useful as the evaluation version had limited power.

    Summary

    This program works with folders which made it possible to select where I wanted my files to be stored. I cold move my duplicate files from my desktop to my network folders where they belonged.
    I liked that I cold select and move or merge whole folders or tree structur in just one step.
    It was also possible to move files one by one, as I was forced to do with an other program I had tried before.

    "Awfully sloooow"

    July 15, 2010   |   By hugo1976i

    Version: Clone Tools 2.0

    Pros

    Well... compared to other apps of this kind, none I could think of.

    Cons

    - horrible results pane layout
    - slow file processing
    - expensive

    Summary

    When the app starts, your first impression might be 'huh, what now..?'
    You are presented with several empty confusing result elements... there is a video tutorial mentioned in the nag screen, and you actually NEED it i'm afraid (i didn't bother with it, though).
    Once you find the 'new search button', it's getting better - the file selection method is not excellent, but its sufficient. You even have folder exclusion options here.
    Then comes the real bad part - file comparison. The comparison algorithm is one of the worst i have seen on a duplicate finder so far - it will find all dupes, but prepare to wait - and wait long you will.
    Back in the results pane (the confusing empty elements from the beginning) i had to quit the app as it was a pain to figure out how to select and delete files... awful. awful. awful.
    On top of everything else its one of the most expensive of its kind.
    1/5 rating just because there is no 0/5

    "It helped me to quickly remove clones in my picture folders."

    March 31, 2008   |   By kollegieblock

    Version: Clone Tools 1.01

    Pros

    I liked that I could mark a folder and delete all picture duplicates in that folder, in one step. This gave me a feeling that I had control of what I was doing and the work was carried out very fast.
