This program is exactly what its name suggests: a tool that helps you find duplicated files on your Windows PC. It's very simple to handle, provides you with a wide range of filtering options, and immediately gives you access to the information you need, without slowing down your system in the process.

You can look for duplicates in all of your drives, an external storage device or several directories within your PC. Once you make the preferred scan location selection, simply choose the file types and sizes, and let the tool get the job done.

In my testing, it took a very small amount of time to scan the indicated directory for duplicates. I liked that I was able to save scan results for later.

My only problem with Duplicate File Finder Plus is the fact that it doesn't offer the option to preview the found files before deleting them from your PC. This feature might prove to be of good use when deciding which is the original picture and which is the unnecessary file copy. Instead, it provides you with the option to open the selected duplicate with one of your other Windows programs.

Still, this duplicate finder might come in handy when organizing your photo collections or reclaiming disk space on your Windows PC. It's worth a try.

This comment is regarding v3.2 of Duplicate File Finder Plus. I received a free license for the full version in a recent promo. At Free, it was overpriced. Documentation consists of click the "Find Now!" button. There was no readme.txt or anything more informative on the software site. The site states they use their "algorithm" to determine duplicates. It fails to tell you what algorithm they are using - MD5? SHA1? SHA256? Apparently, it's none of those, because those actually work. User selected options in this software consist of file types, file size ranges, drives/folders, and whether to scan hidden and system files.

I ran a test. I downloaded a couple of small files multiple times to a folder which contained a bunch of other junk files. I selected all file types. I selected all file size ranges, and I selected the folder containing the known duplicates. I clicked the "Find Now!" button and waited until it finished its scan. The results page looks cheap. It groups files in alternating batches of green and blue lettering. It did return some results, but NONE of them contained the duplicates I had just placed there.

Note to the developers. Compare file size, then hash duplicate sized files using a real known and proven algorithm.

I've tried several software products to find and remove duplicates. Some were good, some were mediocre. This one is the worst of them all. Much better products are available as freeware, so don't waste your money on this trash.
