"Easy to use, Works Perfect with a little patience!!!"

August 14, 2013  |  By jtoneilljr

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

Finds duplicates and searches sub folders. Can click automatic selection of files and invert selection. Very simple to use.

Cons

Wouldn't want to search your entire computer at once. Would take forever, but this is understandable.

Summary

Easy to use, free, works excellent and helped clear thousand of duplicates off my MAC. Cannot believe anyone would give this a bad review.

"Works wonderfully"

September 30, 2012  |  By aaronthenanny

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

Does what it says
Will limit itself to your parameters

Cons

runs in java not Os

Summary

I have had no problems with this program and use it verify that backups on external drives aren't cluttered with multiples (of which I have found many). It does exactly what it says it will and I have had no trouble running it on my MacBook Pro.

"Worst Software I've Ever Used"

February 23, 2012  |  By PrettyCharlie

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

The creator offers a button asking for feedback. I honestly like that idea and wish more ppl would think like him/her. I suspect this developer is a nice person who just needs to learn the fine art of beta-testing.

Cons

* I have a state-of-the-art MAC, and I use it pretty hard, so it has a huge amount of RAM. This program must pull everything it looks at into RAM, because I it devoured it like a teenage boy at a hot dog eating contest. I run Memory Freer on my old MacBook and installed it on my big beast just for interest. It never complains. But with this program it literally popped up about once a minute saying that yet another 12-16G of RAM was left inactive. I was really impressed, but not in a good way.

* I have no graphics card issues either, but every time I touched the results panel the whole thing would freeze for at least a minute (or 6). Being a curious person, I shut down every non-essential program, but nothing changed. Each time it froze it went partially or wholly blank, only to return with fewer results. Finally it locked up completely showing no results at all.

Summary

I'm a nice person, and I do not like to bash people or things, but I have to say that I could not have designed a worse program if I'd tried. I really wanted to like it, but it was spectacularly useless and an utter waste of time. I realize we are not suppose to post adds, but for this function I'll take M*CKeep*r anyday.

"Fast download. Pretty simple to use."

January 18, 2011  |  By hvcriq

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

Works pretty fast. Seems to be pretty efficient.

Cons

Not as intuitive a s would have liked.

Summary

The download was quick and easy. It doesn't make sense to have two different versions at the same time. Once I figured out how to select directiories for scanning, it worked quite well

"Impressive power and simplicity.Not too much guidance."

December 14, 2010  |  By louis.de.merode

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

Powerful program. does what it says.

Cons

At times a bit too powerful for my my machine, and I spent a fair amount of time waiting, not knowing whether it was progressing. Also leaves the user a bit naked in terms of deciding how to maximize value, minimize risk.

"Do not need."

November 30, 2010  |  By Roland Rouxel

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

Very efficient software.

Cons

I deleted the downloaded application and used it once only: I was scared to delete two files with same title and different text. Also I have enough memory to keep duplicates.

"Fast functionality, confusing UI"

December 26, 2009  |  By mstelly

 |  Version: Duplicate Files Searcher 2.2

Pros

quickly identifies duplicates and provides a means to select them all while leaving one copy to keep.

Cons

UI needs help. Although I could select directories, I was never sure if I picked the correct one. This should be immediately obvious to the user. Also, I never did get the filter to work correctly.

Summary

Clearly document each feature and this would be a 5-star product. Get someone else to document the app. What may be obvious to the developer may be confusing to the consumer.
