Excellent - I’ve been workingon this project literally for years - collecting files off of old hard drives, CD’s, memory sticks and phones… I finally have them now, and NOW WHAT? Well, I thought, the first thing is to remove all the duplicates? And how am I going to do that? This app is a godsend. Excellent job. Oh, and the best thing is being able to try it out before paying. Any app that wants me to pay first, I don’t even bother.

Doesn’t work - Tried it on a couple folders that had 20 duplicate files…it only found 1 duplicate. It will even tell me it finds more dupes but wont list them to remove them. Then you rerun it and (No duplicates found)

Review by Mark_a_n

Fast and easy in use - It works perfectly and surprizingly fast - just a few seconds for scanning folders. And it has an extremely easy to use and nice interface. I've tried many apps and gave up them over time due to being untrustworthy. But this one is EXACTLY what I was waiting for - 100% accurate.

My gosh this app is great, blows away the competition! - This app is incredibly incredibly fast…I ran it against several other well-reviewed competitors and it just blew them out of the water, scanning two terabytes of photos, files and movies, it found everything in seconds while the best of the other lot was still working on it after several minutes. Pretty remarkable actually. Also, it’s sorting capabilities for reviewing duplicates is next to none. Great user interface, clear concise and thorough, leaving mystery out of the equation. The developer’s “Menu Cleaner X” is superb also.

Review by Rfroberts

Fast, Elegant Design and Worth the Upgrade - DFF has been wonderful in helping me to remove duplicate files after migrating three portable hard drives onto one large disk. It saved me 415GB of file space out of the original 1.9GB. I removed thousands of duplicates within less than a day after years of copying files from one drive to another to create redundant copies. The duplicate folders and similar folders features are well worth the upgrade to remove multiple copies of directories at once, instead of removing each file seperately. This saved me a great deal of time as I had multiple copies of photo directories. The interface is fast and elegant. DFF took about an hour or two to analyze hundreds of thousands of files (1.9GB). It neatly organized them so one could remove duplicate folders, remove duplicate files in similar folders, and leave the unique files behind. All other files can be removed one at a time, and “Auto-Select” saves time clicking on which version you would like to remove. The application also safeguards you from removing all copies of a single file or directory by forcing you to enable that function and warns you politely before marking all copies for removal, if you chose to do so manually. Thank you for this wonderful application!

Review by Maths+

Duplicate File Finder - This app works very quickly and carefully. It asks for the minimum amount of file size when chencking for duplicates. There is both a free app and a pro version. I woud recommend the pro because it has more features to select files that are duplicates. To me the most important thing is the speed with which it works in finding duplicates of podcasts, photos, texts of various kinds, i.e., text edit , doc , docx, etc..
