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.
Easy Duplicate Finder is an award-winning program that will help you find and delete all sorts of duplicate files in just a few clicks. Thanks to its advanced algorithms and flexible file management options, Easy Duplicate Finder offers unmatched accuracy and ease of use.

Lots of features, I especially like the Master mode where I can compare two drives and find duplicate files on them. This app is also very fast.
The trial only lets you delete ten duplicates. Also it's a pain in the neck to reinstall this program on another computer - you have to copy your license code, then remove it from an existing installation, then install on a new computer, then insert the code again. And if you forget to remove the code from your old computer, you can't reinstall the licensed version. Discovered it the hard way when had to contact support.
A very good duplicate finder in terms of features, options and speed.
Can you please show where it says that it's "free for home use"? The CNet listing says "Free to try (Deletes 10 duplicates; scanning remains unlimited); $39.95 to buy". I guess you haven't read the description before downloading.
good programme, does exactly what it's supposed to do.
user friendly and simple interface.
Free version extremely limited.
Paid version way too overpriced for what it is.
Ridiculous that there is an additional charge for 2 year updates option. What happens to customers who don't opt for this option, buy the product and then the next day there is an update released?
1 Star rating given only because of the marketing methods being used and not the quality of the product itself.
I object strongly to being conned into going to the online purchase page by way of supposedly registering online (I thought that I was registering the Free Trial version).
The only way to find the cost of the product is to "Register". it's almost as if they have something to hide!! I cannot stress enough regarding the seamingly underhanded methods being used to market and sell this product which is a great pity and I am sure that like me, these factors have chased away lots of potential customers.
I wholeheartedly agree that they resort to this underhanded method of buying their product. That is too bad, since reading the positive reviews it appears to quite good. It is too bad that I will never find out for myself since I refuse to support a company that resorts to such tactics.
Difficult to say because I performed one search, and duplicated three files, and then repeated the search. After deleting one file, it announced that I had reach the limit!
Trial period measured in minutes and not days!
This looks like a fine piece of software. The $40 price tag is steep, but when I uninstalled it, they popped up a $30 price. However, in the absence of a more thorough testing even $3 would be excessive in the circumstances.
we're very glad you liked the program, but we're sorry that you didn't understand how the trial limit worked. If you check above, you'll see that we clearly state that Easy Duplicate Finder trial is limited to managing 10 duplicate files. So it's not a time limit (e.g. days), but rather a limit on what you can do with the program without upgrading. For example, scanning is free for an unlimited period of time.
