Duplicate Finder has a title that pretty much explains its functionality. This tool allows you to locate and delete duplicate files, in order to free up space.
The interface of the program is clean and easy to navigate through. You can get started by adding paths that Duplicate Finder will look through.
So, you can look for files with the same names (and with the same extension, by default) or byte by byte.
But you can also make Duplicate Finder track down music duplicates (with title, artist and album similarity) and non-duplicate unique files.
Once you have initiated the scanning process, you can check out the elapsed time, as well as the total number of scanned files, duplicates, file read errors and reclaimable disk space.
In the result list you can check out the name, extension, size, date of modification, similarity level and source path of each file. The original file and its duplicates are delimited by color, so you can easily spot them.
So, you can mark, rename, move, copy, delete and open files, as well as view file properties. In addition, you can save the current session, change the interface language and file size format, enable Duplicate Finder to stay on top of other processes, and more.
The program quickly finishes a scanning job while using a moderate amount of system resources. No errors have popped up during our tests and Duplicate Finder did not freeze or crash. However, the demo version is severely limited, since many essential features of Duplicate Finder are disabled (e.g. filters, exclusion, export). Nevertheless, we strongly recommend this tool to all users.
