    This program does not let you work on a per folder basis. Let's say there are two folders, A and B. Let's say there are 80% duplicates between them and you have about 1000 files in each. You can't tell the program to delete all duplicates from folder B for example. You have to do each file individually (not feasible for me).

    Many users have complained about manual deletion feature. That’s not quite true, although it’s a fact that the deletion feature offered by the software is extremely tedious. However, the software offers the option of saving the results of duplicate search in txt and/or html format. In the exported file the files are groupped in units showing duplicates along with their respectful sizes. With a minimum competence in programmatically processing such file, you may establish virtually any method of deleting duplicates. I, for one, created a short VBA script and process all these reports in MS Access. And in order to manage huge number of duplicates I actually do not need any other duplicate finding software. Noteworthy is that the programme is capable of processing huge numbers of files (in my case more than a million) in one search and the files may be of any size (in my case up to > 1Gb). Processing speed depends on the capability of a given system. However, I find it to be a drawback of the software that I cannot find any information about command line options. To enter folders manually – one after another is a tedious job and I feel really disappointed that the command line option seems to have not been implemented in the software.

    Just used this one.But DuplicateFilesDeleter is the one that I like most. It is a simple to use, but very effective tool to locate duplicate files in one or more selected search paths.It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded which enhances the performance immensely & performs scans very quickly.

    The program is great in theory. However i'm now deleting 2+ million duplicate files manually. It will take a few more weeks and this can't be automated by autohotkey.
