Editors' Review

+

Easy Duplicate File Finder for Mac allows you to quickly locate and eliminate duplicates of files that are taking up valuable space on your hard drive. With just a few clicks, you can add an item to scan, browse through the results, and eliminate any files you choose to free up space, and to help keep your computer more organized and efficient.

Pros

Works quickly: Once you've added a folder or drive to this program, the scans take very little time to complete. In no time you'll be looking at a list of duplicate files and sifting through them to see which you can get rid of.

Good interface and tips: The interface makes it easy to see how to add files and what steps to take next. There is also a set of helpful tips that pop up when you first open the program to guide you through the process.

Cons

Too many trial limits: This program's free trial limits you to ten actions, which really only lets you get a sense of what the interface and navigation are like. But it doesn't give you a real feel for what the program can actually do on a larger scale and how smoothly it will run.

Jerky navigation: Scrolling through the list of scan results with the mousepad is not a smooth process, making it hard to keep your place. The only other option is to use the arrow keys, which quickly becomes tedious. If you don't mind selecting all duplicates and deleting them, this won't be a problem. But if you want to go through individually and make selections, it can get frustrating quickly.

Bottom Line

Easy Duplicate File Finder for Mac does locate duplicate files quickly and makes it easy to eliminate them to free up space on your machine. It would be nice if the trial gave you a bit more of a sense of what you're getting when you purchase it for $39.95, but the program is worth investing in nonetheless.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Easy Duplicate File Finder for Mac 4.6.0.352.

"Deletes files that are not duplicates - installs adware"

November 16, 2014  |  By vvocfz234

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

Looks like a tool, but actually it can not do the single task it has.

Cons

I had to read the negative reviews before using this one!
I lost all my data - this is not duplicate finder it is mass file destroyer!!!!

Summary

I really would pass this one - does not work and installs adware.

"worst piece of crap ever - NO phone support!!"

October 30, 2014  |  By botox702

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

horrid bug filled crap

Cons

crashes my mac every time i turn it on. when it doesn't crash the mac, i add a file the ball spins endlessly, till i get a crash report. tried to call the company. guess what? no phone number. all email correspondence. took 4 days for a response. all i got back was.. "what version are you using?" version of what? their software? my OS? then their email said. We hope this solves your problem. with over 25,000 download from cnet alone @ $40 each that is over $1,000,000.00 they've made and they can't hire 1 minimum wage tech support person? greedy bastards. worst decision ....

I love this program because it just works. I don't need to look for complicated options, adjust complicated settings - I can just run a scan and delete the duplicates. Never had any problems or false results.

I don't think there are any cons.

A beautiful and no-nonsense duplicate finder.

Great speed and ease of use

"Useless demo"

October 18, 2014  |  By ronz01

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

None that I can see from this demo

Cons

So restricted, that I can't tell what it even accomplished.

Summary

This is just a demo. The actual program costs a whopping $40 and as far as I can tell it does nothing useful. In fact, it is even pathetic as a demo. CNET should be ashamed for not labeling it as such.

"The best Mac duplicate finder I've been able to find"

October 07, 2014  |  By RH1020

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

Everything - features, flexibility, UI

Cons

Like the editor said, the navigation is not as smooth as it could be.

Summary

I've been checking out lots of different duplicate finders for Mac and only Easy Duplicate Finder had everything I was looking for. I needed something that was easy to use and had iPhoto search because I have a huge iPhoto library. I was also looking for a program that had flexible file management options and accurate algorithms. Plus I needed something fast. Easy Duplicate Finder has all that and I haven't experienced a single glitch so far.
