Delete Duplicate Files

CNET Editors' review

Delete Duplicate Files offers to help users clear valuable space on their computer by erasing duplicates. However, its trial limits kept us from fully operating this program.

The program's interface was simple enough that following the onscreen instructions and navigating the layout was enough to get us started without visiting the topic-by-topic Help file. We found the entire process to be broken down into such simple components that it probably wouldn't take more than a few seconds to delete files. The program scanned files for content or by file name quickly, taking less than a minute, and the duplicate files were listed in a readable layout. The program also provides a wizard feature that walked us through a quick process to scan a single folder. We have to speculate, unfortunately, because the trial wouldn't let us delete anything. The program offers options to delete, shred or simply move a file, but we cannot say whether or not it works.

Delete Duplicate Files does not allow for deletion during its trial. The program comes as a compressed ZIP file and leaves folders upon uninstall. We cannot recommend this program since we do not know whether it successfully deletes files.

    "I would recommend this software..."

    April 30, 2011  |   By ricardokitkat

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 4.5

    Pros

    saved me 42.6 gigs of redundant files on my externat drive!

    Cons

    It could be more easy to use, if a more step by step instruction was included with this program and or maybe the option to buy a disc of it with directions would have helped.

    Summary

    I am happy with this softwares peformance overall, it would have taken me years to sort out my duplicate files... I would recommend this this program to my novist computer geek friends and the experts..now if they offered the disk it would be better for all....

    March 21, 2010  |   By jovo_dodik

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 4.2

    Pros

    Delete Duplicate Files has a very intuitive interface and just great performances.
    Third strength of this program is it?s variety of options. It allows us to define comparison criteria, make custom filters, schedule automatic scans and more.

    Cons

    There is no multi-language support. Manual is outdated.

    "Not a usable version"

    February 4, 2010  |   By jgluvers

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 4.2

    Pros

    No pros here, this version is only a sales tool.

    Cons

    this version is not compatable with the earlier version and is not an upgrade.

    Summary

    When I downloaded this program, thinking that it was an update to the version that I had paid for a couple of years ago, It would not let me put in my registration number and not work at all as the version that it replaced. When I contacted the program owner he sent me to another download saying that my old program was too lod for the new update.. Well the update that he sent me to was not near as good as the first one that I had PAID for and now is no longer available.. Not happy

    "Do NOT buy this product!!!!!!"

    January 31, 2010  |   By LynnGerhart

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 4.2

    Pros

    Was so angry with the service, I didn't even use it

    Cons

    EVERYTHING - IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT, AFTER YOU PAID FOR IT

    Summary

    TOTALLY USELESS -- It claims it is free, until you do your scan, then it won't delete files until you pay. Fine. But then they sent the registrations *** 8 1/2 hours *** after it was paid for. Who waits that long for an ELECTRONIC registration??! When I had no choice to download another program, that was available immediately, they refused to refund my money.

    "doesn't get numbered duplicate files"

    October 28, 2009  |   By 5old13r

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 3.7

    Pros

    free, small, simple

    Cons

    It failed to do anything. duplicate song names had numbers after them and it thought they were different files

    Summary

    It didn't get a single duplicate file in my music library even though multiples were right next to each other with a number stuck on the end of each name.

    "Not Free to Try"

    August 1, 2009  |   By obriguy

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 3.5

    Pros

    I don't know b/c it didn't work unless I pay.

    Cons

    Features disabled are deleting files...what you are looking for. Should say that the features disabled are the only ones you want (delete/move).

    "Fraudulent"

    January 10, 2009  |   By derigo38

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 3.1

    Pros

    Nothing. Look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Got msg that unlock code would be delivered w/i 48 hours. Needed it then--advertised as instantaneous download. Waited 2 hours. Nothing. Other email came in so it was not my link. LOOK ELSEWHERE.

    Summary

    Strongly urge you to look elsewhere. Refunds not honored. Fraudelent advertisement.
    Downloaded demo. Demo does not let u clean thumb drives--only certain c: folders. Figured it was demo restriction. Purchased product. Got msg that unlock code would be delivered w/i 48 hours. Needed it then--advertised as instantaneous download. Waited 2 hours. Nothing. Other email came in so it was not my link. Bought Duplicate Finder (R) instead. Instantaneous download/worked great. Politely requested E-gadget refund given delivery delays--declined even though ad never says u may not get to use product for 48 hours. Filing BB complaint and trying to force a PayPal refund.

    "Exceptionally versatile"

    July 24, 2008  |   By adrian.77

    Version: Delete Duplicate Files 2.4

    Pros

    It's ease and simplicity

    Cons

    Nothing. By the way, I listened to your boss on Radio 5 Wake up to Money programme this morning and wasn't he eloquent about the downloading of music files and the furore with the ISP's.
