Duplicate file finder

Recommended Posts

Make CCleaner find duplicate unnecessary files and delete them.

Tankx :rolleyes:

 

I don't know if this is a good idea because a thorough research for duplicate files can take a lot of time.

On the other side it could be very handy if a fast research for duplicate files by same name is implemented

but I think it isn't a smal feature to implement (add drive select, change file display screen for duplicate file selection, add main search code and maybe other changes are needed).

Dup-Killer is a freeware duplicate finder i tested (and translated) some time ago.

However, always be careful deleting duplicates, not all them are surely that 'unuseful', IMO. :)

Removing duplicates can very easily cause the dreaded reinstallation of programs or worse Windows itself. From prior years past experience I won't touch duplicate finders anymore as it's a sure fire way of causing issues.

I use NirSoft's HashMyFiles to locate duplicate files. :)

Searching for documents or media files is fine but never use it to deleting program files this can cause serious problems as Andavari suggested.

I recommend xxxxxxxx. This is program for finding duplicate files, such as photo files, music files, and image files. It has the following ways to search for duplicate files: search by content, search by properties, files with a zero size.

Yet another (yawn) boring file cloning detection tool for your Windows operating system.

It maybe free download but not free software and frankly anyone who thinks it's okay to charge hideously high prices (e.g. Site license $357.90) for a basic program needs a reality check.

 

I think i'll pass and use I use NirSoft's HashMyFiles or SearchMyFiles instead. :D
