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.

"Perfect.....very easy, and I know it worked perfect"

April 03, 2015  |  By nikothestripper

 |  Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.6

Pros

It doesn't need any adjustments, just hit scan and it shows you the duplicate files. Lets you check the files, very simple. I know they were duplicates because it shows a column at the end called HASH, that is each files unique code, If they are the same its definitely the same file..... awesome

Cons

none that I can see

Actually free
Fast.

"Sorted out my system - nice program"

February 08, 2015  |  By bugbugbug123

 |  Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.6

Pros

I had a messy mydocs folder and other issues due to not keeping backups organized very well. Duplicate Cleaner helped with this and saved a (metric) ton of space.

Cons

Some power features are only in the pro version - I didn't need them this time though

Summary

Useful and free - with no bloatware or installer junk!!

Updated on Feb 21, 2015

Also, the installer is clean. A rarity these days. Recommended!

"Utter Rubbish this program"

February 07, 2015  |  By flourgrader

 |  Version: Duplicate Cleaner 3.2.6

Pros

None At All

Cons

Won't scan nested folders !

If you can't support your software then you don't deserve to be in business!
