    "Better than manual searching, but still needs some work"

    February 21, 2014   |   By chance2now

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    Searches and finds much faster than manually searching through a library or hard disk. It will let you start examining the results as it finds them, so if you have a lot of files to search through, you don't have to wait until it finishes going through all of them. Displays full path of each file pair so you can find and examine them yourself if you want.

    Cons

    There is an option to use ID3 tags instead of filenames as search criteria, but it didn't work. It either couldn't find the ID3 data or didn't use it and continued to just give results based on filename alone. This meant that two songs with the same title (and thus the same filename) but by different artists and thus stored in two different folders would still be detected as duplicates. This greatly reduces its usefulness, as this was the very feature that I was looking for.

    Summary

    I'd give it five stars if the ID3 tag feature worked. It's still quite useful, but without that feature it gives a lot of false positives.

    "Does the job"

    September 12, 2011   |   By tvike60

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    I just needed this to get rid of the duplicate music files in Windows media player. It was easy to use and worked.

    Cons

    None that I noticed.

    Summary

    It was free, it worked, and it's nice to know I have it if I need it again.

    "Nice piece of software."

    January 29, 2011   |   By genxjinx

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    Really quick and does what it says.

    Cons

    Doesn't have an option to move the duplicates to another location instead of deleting them.

    Summary

    For free it is a great app for a small batch of files. It gets clunky if you need to sort through large batches of files

    "A bit clunky, but effective"

    January 25, 2011   |   By Blumenfeld5

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    multiple search layers/variables; complete control over which files are marked to be removed

    Cons

    Not as self-evident in setting up the searches as a barely-competent computer user might need

    Summary

    iTunes is the bane of my existence and I am just tech-savvy enough to be dangerous to myself and others - not enough so to keep out of trouble. In order to un-do the multiple music files created when moving/reorganizing my music library, I needed something thorough and efficient at deleting over 1000 duplicate song files. After some trial and error with the search parameters, I found the settings that worked best for my needs and my music files are free of duplicates once more. Great tool for the price, for certain. Will install on other laptops in my home, and recommend to friends.

    Pros

    Pros?? It has a catchy name...Sounds like what you may need.

    So I'll remain quiet

    "Somewhat effective."

    September 19, 2010   |   By Techdick

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    It found most duplicates but after deleting I had to recover some originals that were deleted.

    Cons

    It seemed to have some glitches in deleting.

    Summary

    Good in finding duplicates. Delete in batches to avoid losing originals.

    "Worked like a charm"

    February 24, 2010   |   By camstone-fox

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    I had so many MP3s and AACs with the same song on my MP3 player, it drove me nuts. Download, install on WIN7/x64, run by identifying my player driver and it's SD Card as hard drives - zip, bing, all cleaned up.

    Cons

    Had to de-select some duplicates manually, since they were not really duplicates, but it was a small matter to do that.

    Summary

    Free, and it works. If you can find something better, then you better let me know too.

    "Worked for me"

    December 02, 2009   |   By boog5816

    Version: Duplicate Music Files Finder 1.6

    Pros

    Finally cleared out all the Dupes in Real Player.

    Cons

    Don't know for sure, but shortly after using had to do a System Restore.

    Summary

    Like I said it worked, but be prepared for the unexpected.
