Scan your Mac for duplicate files and folders, quickly review the results list and remove the unnecessary items from your drive to gain more space
Duplicate files can take a significant chunk of your storage space if you are not careful, especially if you are dealing with large documents.
The Duplicate File Finder application offers you the possibility to scan folders, review the items marked as duplicates, and proceed to the cleaning process in a streamlined manner.
Analyze multiple folders for duplicate files and visualize the results via colorful graphs
Duplicate File Finder can scan your entire home folder, or you can manually select the directories you want to evaluate. Note that you can scan multiple folders at the same time and that you can add directories from network or external drives.
Once you start the scanning process, Duplicate File Finder enables you to monitor the progress, lets you know how many duplicates have been detected, and organizes the files by type: pictures, movies, music, documents, archives, folders, and others.
To help you visualize the information better, Duplicate File Finder generates both bar and pie charts and assigns a different color label to each file type. Within the app’s results overview panel you also get to see the biggest similar files together with cleanup hints.
Preview the duplicate files and manually select the ones that should be deleted
Duplicate File Finder offers you the possibility to review the content of some of the duplicates files right inside the app, while the others can be easily opened in the Finder to be sent to third party applications.
For your convenience, Duplicate File Finder comes with an auto-selection function, and can also automatically mark for removal the newest or the oldest items. However, the user gets to double check everything before starting the removal process.
Worth mentioning is that Duplicate File Finder can also find duplicates in hidden folders, can identify duplicate directories, and even detects similar folders that include both unique and duplicate content.
Get rid of duplicate files that take up storage space unnecessarily
What sets Duplicate File Finder apart from other duplicates detection apps, is the fact that it can evaluate an extensive amount of data quite fast and generates colorful graphs to help you identify the biggest problems with ease.
Duplicate File Finder can prove to be a time efficient solution for cleaning up both internal and external drives to make room for new content.
