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.

"Fast and Effective"

September 22, 2016  |  By paul_ploksts

2016-09-22 22:59:09  |  By paul_ploksts

 |  Version: Duplicate File Finder 6.2

Pros

The free version achieved all that I needed of a duplicate finder - including the facility to automatically mark and delete one off the duplicates and retain the other. Other apps of this kind that i have tried required manually marking duplicates to delete.

Cons

I have no negatives to mention.

Summary

The free version of this app was fantastic in processing my duplicate pictures. I will definitely consider purchasing the pro version for music and other double-up clutter on my PC, when i get to them.

"The New Marking Options Are Great"

 |  Version: Duplicate File Finder 6.2

Pros

Has all the features you may imagine and possibly need from such a tool. Even the free version is more than satisfying, the limitations are not affecting the rich functionality of the tool, but merely the number of operations you can do in one search (which you can do over and over again as many times as needed).

Cons

None and I mean it!

"Once you buy, whatever you do don't update."

 |  Version: Duplicate File Finder 6.2

Pros

works yes it works

Cons

Updates disable old versions forcing you to buy new version

Summary

I purchased this software many years ago and had run it successfully on Win8. They was a nag screen that said there was an update and when I updated suddenly the software would not work unless I bought a new license. Unscrupulous practice if you ask me. I never had an installation copy of the original software which I had purchased a license and it is unavailable on their website. I was basically tricked into rendering my software useless. I will never purchase an Ashisoft product again.
