Editors' Review

This step-by-step file duplicate finder will help you quickly locate and delete redundant files; however, we recommend that novices proceed with caution when it comes to deleting any found duplicate files.

Easy Duplicate Finder uses a three-step process to quickly and easily locate and remove duplicate files from your system. Simply add the folders you wish to scan and define the file mask (all files, JPEG, MP3) from the drop-down menu. Click the Start button in Step 2 and the program very quickly displays any found duplicates. While the program is scanning your system, you can actively watch the numbers of files scanned, original files to duplicates, and the space used by said files. Using the export button, we were able to easily export the program's findings. Finally, we had to decide what to do with the files. We had the option of deselecting all files, renaming them, moving them to a folder, and deleting selected files. We went through each option, and all worked perfectly. The Settings menu gives you two file-comparison options (CRC32 and byte-by-byte) and help is available through the publisher's Web site.

The program does add extra desktop icons without asking and we had to manually remove some items after the program was uninstalled. Still, Easy Duplicate Finder proved to be a very thorough and reliable file-management tool, but because of the risk of accidentally deleting important files, we only recommend this program for more-experienced users.

"Great program freed up so much space."

February 14, 2011  |  By starfire990

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

Easy to use interface. found many duplicates. protected my system files. Music tag mode found more duplicates in my music where i had many of the same songs with different names, bit rates lengths etc. i could check which was the best and delete rest

Cons

sometimes slow on large scans

Summary

I loved this. I was able to get rid of so much wasted space, that i don't need to go buy a new hard drive. My music collection is also tidy and near. I just love this software and recommend it to any of you out there.

"This company will rip you off!"

February 08, 2011  |  By Tloe69

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

Software works ok

Cons

I was triple charged for this software and when I contacted the company about it I received an email indicating it had been sent to the accounting department. I received that email on 25 Jan 11 and have yet to receive the refund for the overcharge.

Summary

Do not buy from this company, they employ underhanded business practices and lie when you confront them about it.

"horrible activation restrictions and costs too much."

February 07, 2011  |  By monkeyraven2000

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

It seems to work about as well as the freeware stuff out there.

Cons

A purchase ($30) is for only 1 computer license, and it is not transferable after a year.

Summary

It's not worth the money. They need to get realistic in their licensing schemes and prices.

Pros

finds all the duplicates

Cons

you delete each one at a time.

price goes down $10 33% when you uninstall the free trial. pretty mean to the poor chumps that bought it.

Summary

Doesn't seem to save much time so why buy. The pricing is obviously fake.

"obnoxious activation"

January 11, 2011  |  By bblackmoor

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

I liked that it made selecting duplicates in specific directories very easy.

Cons

The registration/activation process is beyond obnoxious. I paid for the software, and still I can't use it. After struggling with it for a couple of days, I demanded a refund.

Summary

Decent software marred by a short-sighted, obnoxious "activation" scheme. Apparently, some people will never learn that "product activation" on software is anti-customer and serves only to drive legitimate customers away. I suggest using one of the free alternatives to this product instead, such as Duplicate Cleaner.

"Seems to conflict with Vista x54 interupts."

December 31, 2010  |  By paul_saute

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

Easy to use and gives the choice to delete or move duplicate files to a new folder.

Cons

I got the MS's blue screen of death (BSOD) 3 or 4 times when using it.

Summary

If you get the BSOD, uninstall & try something else.

"No commercial ethics at all"

December 28, 2010  |  By Cheers212

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate File Finder 3.1.1.34

Pros

nothing...

Cons

completely causes registry errors, slows down computer worse than mcafee & slows down my network connection.

Summary

It is unbelievable to find a company playing with people's fear in such a dirty way. Anyone who couldn't tell the difference between a real threat and their fake panic reminders with thousands of pop ups will just pay 49.99 to 69.99 to get rid of a virus (in general they refer to Trojans and key loggers). They should pay for the money I lost this morning while unable to recover control of my computer to remove them. Keep safe. Don't make the same mistake I've made trusting them
