Duplicate images, video, and audio files, as well as the various versions we usually keep off our working documents, tend to pile up in our hard drives and take up valuable disk space. AusLogics Duplicate File Finder offers you an intuitive solution to locate and dispose of all those duplicate files, helping you to keep your file collections organized and neatly structured.

Its wizard-based interface is structured in five easy steps where you can gradually narrow your search in order to speed up the scan process and to make it more effective. On the first step you can choose the file types you want to be processed – you can tell the program to scan all existing files or only image, video, audio, archive, or executable files. The second step will narrow the search even more by selecting only those files that are above or below a specific size, while the third step will let you choose if file names, creation / modification dates, and hidden or not hidden files will be taken into account or ignored.

The fourth step has to do with file names also, and here you can specify a certain string that the name should contain or to limit the search to a specific file extension. Note that to make your searches even more precise, you can make use of the Ignore List, where you can check any folders and subfolders that you wish to be complete ignored during the search process. The fifth and last step will ask you what to do with the duplicate files found – shred the files permanently, send them to the Recycle Bin, or to the Rescue Center, which will allow you to recover them later if anything goes wrong. The Rescue Center is actually a backup tool where you can store different file backups and restoration points, which you can use at any point to restore whatever files were deleted by mistake.

Duplicate files will be listed for you on the main window once the scan process has finished. Here, the program offers you a small preview window for you to check any of these files and to help you make the right decisions when disposing of them.

AusLogics Duplicate File Finder comes with all the features you need to locate all duplicate files in an accurate and intuitive manner. Its wizard-driven interface makes it suitable for all users, and its Rescue Center will help you to get rid of only those duplicate files that are completely unnecessary.
