View Full Version : Best File Duplicate Finder

I'm unsatisfied with the duplicate file finders bundled with CCleaner and EasyCleaner, so I think I need a specialist product.

Although those utilities are both great for other uses, I want the ability to specify: Search this list of directories (and only these directories) for duplicates and keep only the copy in the directory I specify.

In other words, keep the files in my nominated directory, and blow away any duplicates you find in a specific list of other directories.

Does anyone know of a freeware product that can handle this?

Thanks in advance for any advice. And thanks to those who have responded to my previous queries.

Some further feedback.

The best one I found was Duplicate Cleaner. (http://www.digitalvolcano.co.uk/content/duplicate-cleaner)

Prosaic name but a really excellent comprehensive product and exactly what I was looking for.

Probably overkill for most people's needs though.

Looks good, I might have tried Anti-twin once but didn't like it for some reason.

That or I never did use it at all.
