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
I read the reviews, and decided to put my own in. I'm rating this program with 5 stars. It may not be 100% fool proof, but for a free program, it goes beyond my expectations. I had tried a similar program that took 12 hours to complete that stated it was free, to get a pop up message I can buy it for 29 as it goes over the 10gb limit, yet clicking on the link sent me to purchase page where 29 was crossed off with a 49 price tag for one year use. I then uninstalled it to get a message I can buy a 30 day license for 15. That's when I looked elsewhere and found this one which does the same exact thing, and then some. If you have a lot of files, it's going to run slow. That's any program, as it's the machine's cpu that's handling the load, not the program. The program does what it states, it finds duplicates, and gives you options on what you want to do with those. The only thing this program lacks, is better instructions. I was able to find more features just because I know special key presses that many a times bring them up. My pc that I format quite often due to a lot of beta testing had restored a directory quite a few times before I found out and unfortunately, each time it got restored and put on another partition, each one retained new files which made it a pain to go through them all. With this program, which took 12 hours to do, an again this is my machines fault, not the program itself, is working fine. As for crashing, expect to see a lot of non responsive messages if you have a lot of files. The more files, the more ram needed to index them. I'm using an I7 windows server and you can only imagine how many files I had to delete that it took over 12 hours to do. If you have a slow machine, I highly recommend selecting a few sections at a time, not all at once. This should prevent overloading your machine to the point of rebooting.
Try Duplicate Files Deleter as it can remove any problems that you might have.
Not a good software if you choose to use on large list of files. This will not helpful for me where I deal with lot of duplicate files.
I tried with Windows 8.1 Pro and works fine with a lot of duplicated files, easy and friendly.
This would be an excellent program if it weren't because you need to select files manually, if you need to compare large set of files forget this program.
