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.

    "Very efficient finding duplicates ...."

    May 25, 2014   |   By melen001

    Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.4


    Can protect DLL files and Windows files & folders. Will find photos, music, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and folder $ files. You can send duplicates to recycle bin before deleting or to folder that you create. Rename the file and show folder in Windows Explorer. Change background colors for list rows as well.


    Haven't come across any yet...


    Have been using for over a year and haven't had any issues. It's fast and will list all duplicates. You can choose which you want to remove or let Duplicate Cleaner Free choose all but one and it will do so. It's hard to believe that it's free when it does such an exceptional job. I have used many duplicate finders but this, undoubtedly is the best.

    "Just another duplicate remover utility"

    May 13, 2014   |   By wirthnathan

    Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.4


    Like interface and overall performance


    Sluggish with slow performance computer


    Can't deny the fact that these tools make our life improved and easier. All of above, this utility is free and gives clear feel of open source world where anyone could use any software without seeing those bogus ads or malware injected into your system.

    Thankful to have such a software though!!
