Duplicate Files Finder is a cross-platform application for finding and removing duplicate files by deleting, creating hardlinks or creating symbolic links. A special algorithm minimizes the amount of data read from disk, so the program is very fast.

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.
Very impressed. I was a little sceptical about how it worked so I tested it on similar files where just a single byte was changed and no more duplicates were found... so it doesn't just check on the file name alone, very important!
After finding the duplicates, you're presented with a list and you have to tell it which files to keep and which to delete. If you have a lot of duplicates, it's a painful task but it's good because you don't want files removed from where they're supposed to be and keep the files that are somewhere well hidden on your system. It's almost impossible to automatically select that for you without being disappointed in the results... so ignore the bad reviews where people complain about this ;)
It's losing 1 star for the documentation (maybe it's there, but hard to find). With proper docs, I wouldn't have needed to test it.
Duplicate searching is working very well, but manually selecting over 2000 files is impossible for me, so this tool is useless. But if author can add "select every first/second" feature and bundle-actions, it may be great tool!
Quick, Effective and Bug / Malware Free ... thank you. Works as well or better than purchased copies of similar products.
