    "If All You Have is a C: Drive, It's Great!"

    April 19, 2014  |   By Tere

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    It found a lot of duplicate files on my c: drive, actually clearing up quite a bit of space. In that respect, it is terrific.

    Cons

    I have partitions on my drives. I want to keep my c: drive as clutter free as possible. Pictures are on on partition, books, music, movies, you get the drift. Pictures in particular are hard to keep track of duplicates and I really wanted to weed those out. I couldn't get it to see any of those partitions, which is what I wanted it for.

    Summary

    It works. Just not in the way I needed a duplicate file finder to work: on all my drives, not just my OS drive.

    April 3, 2014  |   By pikki87

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    Finding and removing duplicate files is so easy now with Duplicate File Finder free edition... I have used other products earlier and I must say that the development team of ashisoft duplicate file finder done the excellent job!

    Cons

    none noted...

    Summary

    Great piece of software... Has worked as advertised and helps when you want to be sure all traces of duplicate files clogging up your file system.

    "Don't do it. It hurts."

    April 2, 2014  |   By MrBlahbox

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    At least it did not start a fire...

    Cons

    Looked good, did trial, bought pro for features. Scanned and saved "cleaned disk. Two days later, pro reverted back to free, without features. No response from tech. Wasted time and anger. Downloaded a couple free progs to try to finish work. They found THOUSANDS more dups that the pro version missed. Had problems looking in subfolders. Don't waste your time. Look somewhere else. Still no response from dev. Awful.

    Summary

    Look elsewhere, be happy.

    "TOTAL WASTE OF MY TIME AND ELECTRICITY!"

    March 21, 2014  |   By epi2me

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    The Misleading marketing.

    Cons

    After it finishes running for almost a full day it does NOTHING unless you pay!

    Summary

    It says "FREE", there is no "BUY" button.... so I have 48,000 MP3's (close to 200GBs)! It took 22.5 hours to scan and find duplicates (which it did). Try to delete? NOPE!
    SOOOOOO mad right now!

    March 12, 2014  |   By hamaannzz

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    I used tool to find and remove thousands of duplicate files on my hard disk. Duplicate File Finder is very easy to use,fast and accurate. I especially like the fact that you can search any one folder or the entire hard drive. It has saved very much of my time. I tested this tool by making some changes in duplicate files and found no errors.

    Cons

    Din'nt get any

    "Easy and does the job."

    January 7, 2014  |   By ahdad

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    I used this program to find duplicate videos and images based on their name, extension, date and size.
    The program showed me a list of all the duplicate files. The duplicates were already marked.
    I pressed delete and voila, and it was done.

    I use Windows 7, 64 bit

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    If you stick to the non-pro options, everything should work fine, otherwise, if you want to use the pro options, then you will have to pay.

    "Garbage Product"

    December 23, 2013  |   By thedurable1

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.3

    Pros

    I can't really say anything good about this product.

    Cons

    It doesn't find and remove all duplicates. When I bought it, the payment window added an extra $10 for software I never order or needed. When I tried to get a refund, no one answered, and no one called back or replied to email. All around negative experience. My advise: go elsewhere. There is a free alternative that actually works, but I don't remember the name. Doing nothing is better than this.
