Super little utility..Free..finds and deletes duplicate files based on checksum and/or criteria.

Option to move or delete dupes.

That is very handy - I just cleared over 300MB of duplicated files from my pocket drive. Thanks for that, SleepingWolf.

Why would you have so many duplicate files?

Or am I missing something?

In my case, my 80GB pocket drive (that I use for work, mostly) was choked with a large number of duplicated driver downloads (same versions and/or names, but downloaded at different times to different folders) and media files (mostly the same files under different names). I also found that a large number of untested ROMs (images of by-gone games from old favorite consoles, all legally owned, of course) on my drive were duplicated in various names.

All-in-all, once I'd filtered out duplicates that I wanted to keep (specific replicated files included with different driver versions, for instance), I eventually removed 375MB of unnecessary junk. That might not seem a lot against an 80GB drive, but when I'm down to my last couple of free gigabytes and too lazy to hunt down duplicates manually, it saves a bit of time.

I do wonder how many copies of the same porn clips are gathering dust on my NAS drive...?

Addendum: upon further investigation, it seems I also have duplicate files extracted from archives on the same drive. Perhaps it would be even better if this tool had a 'search in archives' function - you know, so that you can choose to delete loose files that are already stored in archives.

lol - if I didn't know any better, I'd think you were taking the mickey...

Either way, I've sent a polite suggestion to the author - I'll be keeping an eye out for changes.

Was cautious though..first tried it out with all the AND criteria checked.

Apparently, the pro version doesscan inside archives. I received an email directing me to the demo, here. Worth the asking price..?
