Editors' review

Despite its demo limitation, this handy application effectively finds duplicate, space-hogging files in your hard disk. DoubleKiller Pro's tabbed interface looks rather boring and confusing because of the number of buttons and options. The program lets you select the folder you want to scan, and specify which type of duplicate files to exclude or include. In our tests, the speedy application scanned our entire 20GB hard drive in only a few minutes. DoubleKiller Pro generates a color-coded list of duplicate files, including information such as filename, path, and date of creation. Right-clicking an item allows you to run the file, open its mother directory, and copy and export the entries. However, deleting duplicates is restricted in the demo. Still, DoubleKiller Pro proves to be effective and we recommend it for users who have bloated hard drives.

    "Fantastic Reliable Program -- Highly Recommend -- A++"

    April 20, 2012   |   By Red_Kangaroo

    Version: DoubleKiller Pro 2.1

    Pros

    Finds duplicates quickly by several selectable methods
    Completely Delete or send to Recycle Bin
    Select those to delete by path or folder
    Saves me hours per day.
    Every day it does in a few minutes what would take me about 1 year.

    Cons

    When deleting by folder, the folder path box is far too short.

    Summary

    I have used it for about 3 years. Use it 6 days a week to check about 200 new incoming photos per day, and check through about 500000 existing photos for duplicates. The originals are identified as Library so are not checked against each other, unless you want to. The fresh ones are checked against each other and against the library. It checks the photo, not just the name as do some other programs. Not limited to photos, but that is what I use it for.

    "it does what it claims to, but becareful!"

    October 07, 2008   |   By Capt. Bill Bulla

    Version: DoubleKiller Pro 2.1

    Pros

    The directions are very up front. However, there should be a caution flag on might disable programns. In the hands of the unknowing, this program could be a chainsaw.

    Cons

    it could use a guide to what tasks different files do. With a blanket keeping you from disableing your PC / Note book. Plus a built in restore point step. Just in case.

    Summary

    A very useful tool in the right hands. Go slow, and do your own restore point first. save the doubles till you are sure all runs right. TY Will
