TPD Duplicate File Finder

Editors' Review

by   / October 08, 2009

Duplicate File Finder Lite is an easy-to-use program that allows users to locate and delete duplicate files on their computers. It's a pretty intuitive program, but don't expect guidance on whether or not it's safe to delete duplicate files.

The program's interface is very straightforward, with each step of the process arranged in its own tab. Users first select whether they want to search by file name or bytes, then select a location to search and the types of files they want to search for. The program scans the selected location and provides a list of duplicates. The full version of the program allows users to check the files they want to delete and delete them all with the click of a button, which is nice. We found the program to be very simple and had few problems with it. If we have any complaint about this program, it would be its lack of a Help file. Although the program is easy to use, just because you can delete something doesn't mean you should. We always like to see some guidance from these sort of programs, or at least a warning letting users know that they should proceed with caution. It may seem like common sense, but we'd bet that for a lot of folks, it's not.

Duplicate File Finder Lite is free to try, but the trial version allows users to search for only four types of files, and does not allow users to delete files. It installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
