Time and space saver! - This one is fast, effective, intuitive and easy to use. As a digital photographer, I constantly dabble with issue of duplicate photos and finding and eliminating duplicates manually is not an option. The thing about this app is that it views every file using a hash sum algorithm. What that means is if, for instance, you have the same photo, but you’ve edited one or otherwise changed it, it may not be apparent to you until you open the file in photo editing software. But Duplicate File Cleaner can quickly just do the math and see if they are really exact duplicates or not. So you remove the true duplicates, without the risk of losing any of your editing work or different versions of files that might have the same name. Awesome if, like me, you have duplicates backed up on different external hard drives.
Beautifully designed app that is hampered by some serious usability issues - This is a beautifully designed app that is, unfortunately, hampered by some serious usability issues: 1. If you click on “Display Result” during a scan, it stops the scan. Since scans are slow, it would be nice to be able to work on interim results while the scan is running. 2. If you try to go back to the scan screen while viewing results, it resets the scan and you have to start over (and scans are slow if you have a lot of files). 3. You can’t delete a few files at a time as you work your way down the list…once you hit the delete button the scan is reset and you have to start over. 4. Once you go the the results screen, any folders you selected for the scan are cleared when you go back to the scan screen. The application also froze up on me during my first use while I was selected files to delete, requiring me to force quit the app and relaunch it (which of course reset my scan results). That drops my rating down from 2 1/2 stars to 1.

Just what I needed - I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro and transferred the contents of 2 old hard drives. I literally had THOUSANDS of duplicated pics. It was rediculous. I had no idea how I could possibly sift through them all….so I didn’t. I took a deep breath and pressed delete after this magical app cleaned through all of my files.
10 stars if I could. Absolutely amazing. - Does what it says it does. Due to syncing over time, iPhone, iPad, wi-fi sync, new phones, etc… some photos end up being duplicated. Until now, it was a major pain to try and remove them (one at a time), and in some cases, the duplicates would appear in different places on my timeline. It took about 45 seconds to find the duplicates, a few minutes of me verifying that the duplicates were indeed that (yes, it compares size, timestamps), and that was it. For a very reasonable price, it did it all quickly, accurately, and moved the duplicates to the trash (where I COULD recover if I felt the program didn’t do it’s job, but it did). Free space heaven. Can’t give enough praise for this product. I checked a few of the 1 star reviews, and they are just ‘feature requests’; really don’t understand why they downgraded the product because they would like to have X, Y, or Z feature. The product does exactly what it says it does. Quickly, accurately, reasonable price.
Great in theory, crashes every time. - This program was working wonderfully when I was scanning small folders, but I bought it primarily to clean out duplicates in my music and photo libraries. And those are huge libraries. I tried to get through each library multiple times, but every single time it crashed and froze my computer completely. Pretty bummed out I spent the money since I can’t get it to work for the folders that actually need it the most.
Works Well, Right Price - This is an easy to use and relatively safe way to remove duplicate files. It work fastest by searching a few folders at a time and sends duplicates to trash where they then can be sent to a back-up just in case you're afraid to lose those precious five identical photos of your mother-in-law. A very clean and intuitive interface plus a great price puts this at the head of the class.
Works Well - Seems stable on Yosemite. Worked very well in the new Photos library; also scanned my entire home folder, and it went quickly. Tip: scan individual folders to make the process more manageable. More affordable than alternatives with same functions. Reminders to write a review are annoying, but it’s worth it.
