Editors' Review

+

This program scans and locates duplicate files on your computer. It's easy to use and navigate; however, we found its search capabilities too limited.

Duplicate File Remover's interface isn't flashy, but it is easy to use and navigate. Simply open the application and select which folder(s) on your computer that you want to search, and the search will begin. When the search is finished, a summary of all found duplicate files is displayed. From there, you have the option of deleting, copying, moving, or hard-linking the files. For our tests, we knew we had some duplicate files in our My Pictures folder, so we started there first. Our duplicate files had similar names, but not exactly the same name. We were disappointed to find that Duplicate File Remover only located files that had the exact same name. If there were an option for searching for files using keywords, this application would be much improved. The program will search for duplicate files that are not saved in the same folder, so if you have an idea of which folders on your computer contain duplicates, this is helpful.

The program has a Help file which can be accessed by pressing F1. You have 30 days to try Duplicate File Remover, which is plenty of time to learn its ins and outs. The trial version installs and uninstalls with no problems, but it does create a desktop shortcut without asking. Overall, we think that Duplicate File Remover is a useful application, but it would be even more useful with more robust search capabilities.

"A great disappointment"

February 22, 2011  |  By trifork

 |  Version: Duplicate File Remover 2.4

Pros

As I have not been able to make the software work, I cannot judge if it is useful. I'm only giving it a star rating because the review format requires it.

Cons

I use XP pro on a new Thinkpad T410 laptop. I downloaded the paid, self-extracting version 2.5 and duly registered it. In the process of detecting the duplicates, however, the program shuts down.This situation is repetitive. The software do not work.

Summary

I reported the matter to Essential Data Tools support and have so far only received lukewarm response. Lately my request for help to solve the problem is falling on deaf ears it seems.

So, I'm stuck with a lemon it seems.

"Nice software, extremely slow but did the job"

October 26, 2009  |  By ferg4914

 |  Version: Duplicate File Remover 1.7.501

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

SLOWWW, I ran it on 425 GB and it found 125GB of duplicates. Took over 8 hours. Problem is that even though it says free trial, it only lets you delete a couple dup's at a time, then pops up message about buying

Summary

Nice product, wish they would have explained that the free trial is extremely limited, I would have bought this if they didn't make me run an 8 hour scan only to tell me to buy the product or click OK for the next 5 years to finish removing the duplicate files. Al it says is that it is a free 30 day trial.
