Editors' Review

+

Duplicate File Finder searches your computer for copies of files and deletes them for you with your approval. This helps to free up space on your hard drive, and it also helps to avoid confusion when you're looking for a particular file, so you don't have to sort through various versions to pick the right one.

Pros

Types of searches: In order to efficiently find the types of duplicate files you're looking for, you can choose one of two search methods. For instance, you can have the app search for files with the same name, or you can have it analyze the actual content of the files byte by byte to find files with different names but the same or very similar content.

Smooth process: To start the scanning process, all you need to do is drag and drop folders or browse to add them straight through the software. You can add as many of these as you'd like to at once, and the scans are completed quickly. Results show up in a clear list with all but one of the duplicates checked for deletion. However, if there is a particular version of the file you'd like to keep, you can adjust which copies are deleted. You can also decide whether you want to delete files permanently or just move them to the Recycle Bin for the moment.

Cons

Cluttered interface: You have to scan through all of the Pro options to find the few features available to free users, which can be both time consuming and frustrating.

Bottom Line

Duplicate File Finder works smoothly and offers a nice set of features. Even the free version works well and can help you free up a lot of space on your hard drive, as long as you don't mind working around all the Pro options displayed in the interface.

"Use Duplicate Files Deleter. It can delete anything"

 |  Version: Duplicate File Finder 6.3

Pros

select which file extensions you want to delete

Cons

none because its the best

Summary

I have recently used a program called Duplicate Files Deleter & i am so happy with the results that this particular program does. I have more than 50 GB of duplicate files in my computer and i was going crazy with the hard disk space that was being consumed and thanks to the "Duplicate Files Deleter" where i don't need to search each & every file to delete. Duplicate Files Deleter did the job for me within a very short period of time. So no need to google each problem to remove duplicate & unwanted files, just grab the program called Duplicate Files Deleter.

"Have lots of duplicates? Don't waste your time here."

October 04, 2016  |  By xcopy

2016-10-04 09:29:02  |  By xcopy

 |  Version: Duplicate File Finder 6.3

Pros

It found some duplicate files and didn't make my computer explode.

Cons

In the free version (tested) there's no way to select all files from a drive, path, or group . This means that if you have hundreds, or even thousands of files to delete, you have to select them one at a time. The recommended procedure is to export the result set (the duplicates to an HTML document and then go through it).

Seriously?

Summary

Truly worthless software if you have more than a few files to delete. Positive reviews are from those with very few duplicates, or paid shills. I can't see any other explanation of how someone would find this useful.

Of course you can always pay them for the pro version, but I have no idea how that's going to work, so YMMV. I think your time and money is better spent by trying the free version of Digital Volcano's duplicate file finder which will do almost everything people need, and upgrade if you want more features. I've used the free version for years, and it's clearly a superior product compared to this.

Definitely NOT recommended.
