Editors' Review

+

A crowded hard drive slows you down and stops you from fully enjoying all your favorite programs. Duplicate Cleaner helps you make some more room by removing unnecessary or copied files in bulk. This program delivers exactly what you would expect based on its name, and it does it quickly and effectively. You won't believe how much space it frees up.

The program's slick interface is a welcome change compared to what you might expect from utility programs. Scanning any drive or file location takes only one or two clicks. It only took the program about 90 seconds to scan a 20 GB drive that had about 2,500 files. The list of files was a little hard to read, but the color-coding of separate, duplicate pairs helped a lot. Deleting the files means going through several different confirmation screens, which was a little annoying. It's nice that Duplicate Cleaner was looking out for rookie users and making sure they didn't delete anything that they actually wanted. The pro version of the program costs around $30 and adds a few advanced searching features. Most folks won't need the paid version, though. The free version is more than you could really ask for.

This program quickly searches for and kills any duplicates from your hard drive. If Duplicate Cleaner could do it in fewer clicks, it would be perfect. However, the extra effort is worth it to save a few users from deleting something they really need.

"Doesn't work"

March 19, 2016  |  By PengangkutBaja

2016-03-19 02:18:13  |  By PengangkutBaja

 |  Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.7

Pros

Looks like a good interface

Cons

When I tried using this to compare 2 folders on my external drive (both containing videos & likely identical), it started to scan and looked like it was doing something, then suddenly stopped, reporting 0% complete and 0 duplicates found. Trying to exit that dialog was tricky. Same with trying to exit the program.

Summary

Could not find duplicates between 2 folders on my external HD, both containing videos and likely identical

"Absolute Garbage"

February 14, 2016  |  By DrGregMize

2016-02-14 09:12:12  |  By DrGregMize

 |  Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.7

Pros

***NONE***

Cons

Would allow easy listing of files to scan, but when another tab asked which files to scan, the files from the previous list could not be migrated. Help files pretended to exist but when selecting them nothing came up. POS

Summary

Don't waste your time. I'm uninstalling it now.

Pros

Sorted out my overstuffed backup folder - had about ten copies of everything. Ran fast, no issues.

Cons

None really - could do with a Wizard I suppose.

Summary

Free, no issues, go for it!
