Duplicate files finder

Recommended Posts

A new tool for CCleaner should be a duplicate files finder... will be amazing to clean your pc based on size, content, etc... duplicated mp3s, videos, photos, etc are very annoying... this could be a solution! :rolleyes:

Yes, that would be amazing! But it would also run for a (very) long time if you have vast amounts of files on your computer.

 

I personally would rather have this as a separate tool, and I can find quite a number of those via Google.

Most of the duplicate files can be removed without a tool.

 

Just purge Windows\system32\dllcache - they are all duplicates.

There are of cause good reasons not to do that - like will it ever boot up again.

There are many files with the same name, but who are different applications.

There are many duplicate files for running windows that also exist in other areas that upon deletion can break windows from running properly.

 

The problem with duplicate finders, is not any of them are perfect & make mistakes.

 

Mistakes are not an option!
