    "May work okay, but there's better out there"

    Version: Duplicate File Detective 4.3.53


    You can try it for free.


    It's not really worth trying in my opinion. I went with a different program that was able to help me get rid of several backups that contained backups of backups of backups. I had a series of computer crashes during a really busy time in my life and had to clean up what came out to be ~900GB of duplicate files. This program was *not* the one that was sufficient for this.


    While you can try the product for free yourself, I don't recommend it. I found Duplicate Cleaner (and eventually Duplicate Cleaner PRO) to be much better at catching all the files as well as easier to use. In addition, I was able to trust that program much more than this one as it's rather clunky and doesn't seem to function nearly at the same level as it's competition.

    "Failed my test, only found 66/72 duplicate files :-("

    Version: Duplicate File Detective 4.3.53


    Fast, easy to use, looks good, has all the feature I want like it gives you a similarity percentage of the results like the software 'fast duplicate finder'. each file has it's own unique icon and automatically selects all the duplicates.


    Only found 66/72 duplicate files... read the summary for more info


    I've tested this software with 12 other softwares and this one failed because it only found 66/72 duplicate files. All other software, even free ones found all 72 files. I wanted to see if it scans 'all' types of files so I took sample files and copied all of to see if the software could find all file types and I was disappointed with this software, it only found 66/72 which is terrible. My duplicate file finder 1.0, All dup 3.3.25, Duplicate file cleaner 2.6.2 and Fast duplicate file finder did a way better when it comes to accuracy, speed and features.
