    "Very Useful. I love it!!!"

    September 25, 2014   |   By marikeet

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.4

    Pros

    It fast, free and accurate.

    Cons

    None. Its great and free.

    Summary

    It scanned about 10GB of folders I chose in 5 min so time was not wasted on folders I did not need to scan. It found lots of duplicate photos. It shows the photos so I can compare. It has check marks by all of the duplicates so they could be deleted at once, but I did not try that. I used the name of the folder locations given for each duplicate to find and compare what I wanted to keep or delete. It lets me sort the results by date, type of file and other choices. I was able to save my search to run it again. This was good because I have more duplicates than I can look at in one sitting. It seems like I could save lots of time by letting it choose the dups and just deleting them, but I wanted to make sure and deleted things manually. It did not seem to make any mistakes that I found, but I needed to do it the slow way for my own peace of mind. Some complained about upgrade message when closing program. But its only one click to make it go away. So not a problem to me for something free.

    "Why is this Spectacular?"

    September 15, 2014   |   By chubaka67

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.4

    Pros

    multiple folder option
    include subfolders option

    Cons

    almost every time you go do something it is disabled in the free version. This results in clutter because of all these functions that cannot be used. These are some of the functions that need the paid for version. (currently 29.99):
    find duplicate folders
    find duplicate music files
    filter by file name
    filter by file date
    filter by hidden files
    exclusions
    protected folders
    smart auto select functions

    Summary

    5 stars if it was free
    2 stars for the free version (not sure why cnet gave 5 stars?)

    "pretty good"

    June 07, 2014   |   By cookiebun

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.4

    Pros

    finds duplicates.

    Cons

    very annoying splash screen on exit pointing to cnet review.

    Summary

    Yes it finds duplicates.
    Con: almost all advanced features are disabled with the nag "this feature is available in the pro edition"
    Con Seriously irritating splash screen opens when you attempt to exit program:
    [URL=http://s77.photobucket.com/user/cookiebun/media/annoying.jpg.html][IMG]http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j47/cookiebun/annoying.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
    When I click "exit" I expect to exit. Deal killer for me. Will not buy.

    "Finds almost all duplicate files"

    May 05, 2014   |   By Prof321

    Version: Duplicate File Finder 5.4

    Pros

    I like this program for several reasons: it finds duplicate files, enables one to easily remove them, and will save the removed files for you in case you want to restore them.

    Cons

    None that I can see.
