    "cool but problematic"

    March 23, 2008   |   By seeharmony

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 2.0

    Pros

    Very useful and pretty simple to use.

    Cons

    The program is pretty slow - it can take 30 minutes to search 3 or 4 folders with 2Gb plus in them. But the worst is it seizes up quite a bit. Often forcing a ctrl. alt. del. shut down of the program. Hasn't crashed the computer even once, though.

    "Pretty rough if you have a lot of duplicates!"

    June 30, 2005   |   By leeatsjt

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 2.0

    Pros

    Simple interface, fairly quick-scanned 30,000+ files on my largest partition in about 4-5 minutes-then checked the same for dupes in about 7 minutes and found 19,697 dupes, it's able to dig deep into any path, and you're able to choose specific files types or leave field blank to scan all files.

    Cons

    One major problem for me, the results returned are in individual "sets". On my largest drive (see above), you have to go through each set individually. Couldn't find any way around that, gave up when I had to go through 19,000+ sets. It did lock up twice, but it was on the same file each time, so probably my problem not the programs.

    "simple and powerfull"

    May 18, 2005   |   By joel1978

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 2.0

    Pros

    good checker for duplicate files

    uses crc to check if they are the same

    handy to see which files on ur backup have changed or which mp3 files u have duplicate. if u dont want to delete certain extensions u can apply a simple but powerfull filter to include or exclude any extension u want

    "An amateurish first effort at programming"

    October 02, 2003

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 2.0

    Summary

    Ineffectual memory management - could not handle 100,000 file HDD. Ludicrous Delete procedure. Poor Display feature. Written by "Runningman" - I recommend you don't chase after him!

    "errors on file deletion"

    September 11, 2003

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 2.0

    Summary

    When it trys to delete a file it reports that it can't find the path and then comes to a screeching halt. In a word -- JUNK.
