Another duplicate file finder/remover. But this one is ULTRA FAST, safe, easy to use and of course free and open source.
- Fast !
- Easy to use
Warning to those that stumble upon this program! Unfortunately, this program missed 2 important files from 93 test files of duplicates. This was in the importing processes of files from a directory into its own window. I tried every configuration and menu selection and gave the program a thorough test. To miss files is a major flaw. I have un-installed it. All those people who gave this good reviews have never tested it properly. It's never been updated from the first Beta over 4 years ago and should be removed from this site.
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.
I've only just begun using this but so far I like it better than any of the others that I have tried. I'm more comfortable deleting files with it because it shows me the hashes. Many of the others failed to do this and some of them claimed that files were duplicates even if the hashes didn't match. It is much more simple to use than others as well. And open source is definitely a plus because I have more confidence that I am getting exactly what is advertised. Keep up the good work.
Imho this tool is not comparing sizes before making hashes. For example I found 2000 duplicates (by TotalCmd) in folder of 8000+ files, different names, but same size and content. But tool has been making hashes for every file which is painfull with slow computer. Duplicate selector shall have just first/second/... option, but I'm happy for this, because tons of deduplicators are lacking selectors (most important feature). Anyway, happy to using it, thanks.
A very elegant tool for duplicate find and removal. Computes the Hash values to compare files. Plenty dup removal options (you just need to be very careful there). Built-in support for image and video file types. And pretty fast. As compared to other sourceforge rivals: Duplicate Files Finder appears to compare files by size only (maybe I am wrong). And it's still a pain to remove dups. DUFF is just counter-intuitive and I gave up a try after installing at all.
