This program tames directories by searching and deleting duplicate files, but its same-name search function could spell disaster for some users.

CloneMaster compares file names, sizes, and dates for user-selected drives and directories. Boasting a tabbed interface, the program returns a list of suspected duplicate files. You can manually choose files for deletion or allow the program to choose. Files with the exact same name, size, and date--but in different directories--are good candidates for deletion. However, files compared by name only and found in different directories are often necessary for various programs and deleting the duplicate could cause problems.

As a result, we found CloneMaster much safer with the duplicate-name function disabled. Unfortunately, the demo's delete feature is disabled, a serious limit to this app's usefulness. Still, CloneMaster performs its intended task well and is recommended for all users who maintain many directories of files. Digital photographers will find it especially useful.

Developer's Description

Scan your hard drive for duplicate files.
CloneMaster will clean your hard drive of duplicate files that are just wasting space. CloneMaster searches for TRUE duplicate files (byte for byte). It does not find duplicates by filename, date, size or CRC. It does so by comparing the file data itself ensuring 100% accuracy. CloneMaster uses a special algorithm that makes the scan extremely fast. It is as fast as your drives can deliver. CloneMaster let you find duplicates in multiple paths, backups drive, drives (Hard drive, USB Stick, Jaz, ZIP, CDROM, DVD, Network drives, etc.). CloneMaster can scan files with size over 2GB. All of the duplicate files are listed in a single list to quickly select those to delete. Using the header sort, you can easily select the old duplicates to delete. Not only can CloneMaster find duplicate files, but it also finds zero length file (empty files) and empty folders. The system context menu (using the right mouse click) allows you to preview files, view the properties, delete etc. CloneMaster has the ability to print the expanded list of duplicates by clicking on the Save As button, it will save your List of the duplicates into a .txt or HTML format, and then you can print the whole list.
