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
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.
I have once experienced a misery loss when I used a duplicate remover which cannot export a detail report. My company annual report and business budget, which took me several days to complete, were just deleted directly. To avoid such kind of loss, you need to use a duplicate remover that exports detailed report. Thirdly, supporting all kinds of removable devices is a consideration you have to think about. You could have a lot of unwanted files in your portable storage devices. With using a good duplicates finder that can finds and deletes duplicates in removable devices, you will easily clean up any worthless files in your iPod, iPhone, Zune, Zip, PSP, MP4 and so on.Get More Info At : www.ashisoft.com
