Duplicate Finder 184.108.40.206
The interface is divided into three smaller windows, each playing a different part in the whole process. Using the built-in file browser you can select or go to the location of the desired folder. Then it's a matter of adding the folder to the "Include to Scan" tab and start the process. Exclusions from the scan can also be made by simply adding the folder to a special list.
Multiple files supported
You may apply filters in order to exclude or include certain files.
The tool lets you filter data by extension, including PDF files, archive files (e.g. 7Z, ACE, ARJ), Office files, music files (e.g. MP4, AAC, AU), Open Office files, photo images (e.g. BMP, GIF, JPG), video files (e.g. 3GP, SWF, FLA), web files (e.g. CSS, HTML, PHP) and text file types like TXT and RTF or size (a minimum or maximum user-defined value).
Export to common formats
Once the scan is completed, the tool will display the original and duplicate files, and the hard disk space the duplicates occupy. All the files are displayed also in the third larger window. The app highlights the duplicates which are in the same group and have the same size. The files have corresponding checkboxes, so only the ones you need can get renamed, moved to a different folder or deleted. The result list can then be exported to HTML, CSV or TXT file. Using the right mouse selection, the file can be opened with the associated program or even previewed if it is an image file. Furthermore, the utility includes a CRC calculator, accessible from the "Tools" tab.
A closing idea
Overall, Duplicate File Finder Pro is a handy and lightweight software utility, great for users who have large amounts of data and want to save only the originals, while applying different actions to the duplicate files. The tool is stable and thanks to the simple interface, it can be used even by beginners.
