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.

"Found loads of duplicates on my system"

June 14, 2012  |  By daveyanders

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.0.1.40

Pros

Found loads of duplicates cleaning up quite a lot of space on my system. That music tag mode was cool. It found even more songs than regular mode. Guess I'm too much of a download junkie.

Cons

None that i can see.

Summary

If you need to clean up space this is great for the job.
