QuoteA useful and intuitive application that scans your entire computer or certain drives and displays file duplicates, so you can identify and remove them

There are situations when you are running out of disk space and in mostly all cases, you are tempted to enlarge your disk capacity by adding additional extra space.

However, temporary folders and junk files that make room inside your system are amongst the few reasons why your computer will warn you about low space on specific partitions.

Another trouble that you might encounter with your disk space is because of the huge amount of duplicate files and folders stored into your computer.

Analyzing and removing them manually might become a strenuous job for some of us and here is where Duplicate File Finder Plus comes in handy.

Designed with ease of use in mind, Duplicate File Finder Plus enables you to scan specific folders and partitions and remove all the duplicate files.

Because it sorts the results by file size in a descending order, you can quickly find the duplicate files on your partitions relied on file contents. Simply specify the drives or the folders you want to be scanned, then quickly preview the found files.

The main feature that makes the application to stand out is that it compares the files based on the contents, not file name, so you can rest assured that you get accurate results, no matter the size of the folder you are scanning.

What's more, Duplicate File Finder Plus enables you to perform common actions for the checked files such as moving them to Recycle Bin, viewing the properties or simply opening the current file location.

Considering all of the above, Duplicate Finder Plus proves to be a reliable and effective solution when it comes to scanning your partitions and removing all the duplicate files based on their contents.

Software.Informer.com's Review



QuoteDuplicate File Finder Plus is a Windows utility able to detect all types of duplicate files. Using a quick and efficient scan, the application is capable of finding duplicate copies of any file on your PC, including documents, images, media, etc., which clutter up your PC and take up valuable disk space.

Starting a search for duplicates with this tool is straightforward since its interface is intuitive and gathers all its options into one window. To start up, you need to determine the type of files you want to search and specify the location where the scan is going to take place, which can be all or any selected drives on your PC, including external units, and even specific folders. The search can be narrowed down by setting a specific file size and format.

If any duplicates are found, the application will show you a list with the results; from this window you can open any file, send files to the recycle bin, or just remove them for good. Unlike other similar applications, this dupe finder does not integrate a preview pane, which could be a useful and time-saving feature when working with image files.

During my test, this duplicate finder did a very good job at detecting a bunch of duplicate images scattered on my PC, according to my search criteria. The scan was fast and precise, so I was able get rid of unnecessary files and recover some space in my disk.

Duplicate File Finder Plus is available as a trial version, allowing you to delete only one file. The full version costs $29.95, and there's even a free edition of the app on the developer's site.

Pros
  • Very easy to use.
  • Fast and precise results.
Cons
  • Only the limits of the trial version.
