I have downloaded and installed a whole bunch of duplicate cleaners and this one performed best in all areas.

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.

Default install wants to install Ask Bar. Otherwise this is a decent freeware app.
Handles network drives

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

Tried ones suggested but they are not quite satisfactory.

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.
