Today, when hard drives have grown to enormous sizes, we dont really care when copying files around, downloading software from the Internet and storing documents to locations that seem to be most convenient in a specific situation. All that results of dozens and hundreds of identical files being stored on your hard drive or drives, which, apart from being plain confusing, creates unwanted mess and decreases the free hard drive space that you couldve otherwise used for more appropriate purposes. Finding them manually is a task of extreme complexity. So if you want to bring some order to your file system, try Duplicate File Detector an excellent piece of software that will solve your duplicate files problem in a blink of an eye!
Duplicate File Detector offers a flexible search filter for finding duplicate files on your hard drives, flash cards and drives and other locations. The application does not delete the files by default, but only marks the detected duplicated and lets you decide their fate. You can view the list of results and send the unnecessary copies to the Recycle Bin with a single mouse click. The search algorithm used by Duplicate File Detector enables you to search regular data files and executables, images, videos, documents and even music by ID3v1, ID3v2, OGG and WMA tags! One of the key features of Duplicate File Detector is the ability to specify the size of the fraction of the file to be used for comparing CRC data. This may save you hours when comparing really large files, such as videos. Just let the program compare the first 5 megabytes of each file and see how much faster the process goes. Apparently, the risk of a wrong comparison increases as well, but its really nothing compared with the blazing speed the files are processed at! The built-in versatile viewer saves the trouble of having to use third-party software to make your decision regarding the file in question. Apart from the above features, the program also supports group actions, folder history and session saving, which means that you will be working with the same set of data after the program is restarted.
Duplicate File Detector is an excellent value for your money and a great addition to your collection of must-have software. Make sure you dont miss it and it wont miss a single duplicate file on your computer!
