Isn't worth anything

Hi. As I've written in title I have tried lots of programs. Can recommend you "DuplicateFilesDeleter". Just try this one and you will see the difference.

This has been the best of about 4 duplicate file finders I have tried. Really easy to setup, easy to use, and it has enough advanced features to find slight variations of duplicates. I also really like the way I can simply MOVE the duplicates to another location (while keeping the folder structure of the original location) and not having to delete them right away.

You have some Duplicate Files on your computer which hampers your memory space.
Just use "DuplicateFilesDeleter" software.
If you use this software you will be get comfortable.

Thanks for the suggestion. I went to look up DuplicateFilesDeleter here on AlternativeTo:

Duplicate Files Deleter

There is a note saying this software may not be safe... interesting.


Nice, but

It can't find network drives. Even after a networkdrive connect to a Drive letter, it won't see it. It works just with the drives IN the computer.

It comes with toolbars and additional software

Simple but effective. The selection of directories is a little clumsy, and setting the find filter also could be easier, but the flexibilities afforded by creating file lists and later reloading them for active file deletion overshadow those issues.

As with any application that can make bulk changes to your system, use this and any file deleter with caution and some respect - it will wipe your selected items after chicken-testing but you have little recourse if you don't read the prompts to ensure you know exactly what you are affecting, especially with the automatic selection feature. That is the beauty of the list Export and Import feature - ability to review what you want to delete without the program "waiting" for your decision.

Overall a fine product.
