Gemini for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Gemini for Mac's great interface and quick search features help users locate and remove duplicate files that have accumulated over time and taken up too much computer space. The program uses balanced algorithms that enable it to search for and locate duplicates in a flash.

While Gemini for Mac comes with a demo version with unknown limitations, the full version is available for $9.99. The program, itself, opens into a basic but modern interface, which contains well-designed and labeled buttons. A plus button allows the manual selection of a folder for searching, but the program also allows folders to be dragged into the center of the window. Users can place almost any type of folder into the program, including those with songs, videos, photos, or documents for searching. Pressing a search button initiates the program, which returns results quickly. Once searched, the program moves to another menu where the potential duplicates are displayed. The program window lists the type of files it's searching in the upper left, as well as the total size of the alleged duplicates. Clicking the individual files moves them into a large, left-side bar, where they are displayed for easier comparison by the user. The user can then select the files for removal, and click a button at the top to complete the deletion. Additionally, in the program's settings, the user can set the minimal file size, manually, or leave the program to define it, automatically, as well as set the program to automatically move duplicates to Trash and remove empty folders. They can also exclude certain files, folders, and extensions to prevent the program from scanning them, as well as prioritize certain locations for scanning, such as the Downloads folder.

Gemini for Mac packs many useful features in a modern and easy-to-use interface. It is a good choice for any user who needs to quickly locate duplicate files on their Mac and clean them up for good.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Gemini for Mac 1.5.

    "Very Limited for docs & have to PAY to actually use it"

    January 6, 2014  |   By bannisterja

    Version: Gemini 1.5.3

    Pros

    None that I experienced

    Cons

    This program is limited. It will find same content including those with different names. However it will not allow you like some to search on contact that is for example 90 percent the same so you can find previous versions with a different file name.

    Also, in order to actually have the program DELETE the duplicate files it finds, you have to BUY the program!!! So it might be a free download but it is NOT a FREE program!!!

    Summary

    There are WAY WAY better programs out there - not sure if they have better ones for a MAC but for a PC this is terrible in terms of options and the fact it is not free to then delete them!
