Did you ever imagine how many redundant or duplicate files you could find forgotten in an obscure documents folder. Duplicate Cleaner will make it easy to organize the contents of your hard drive. Thanks to the support and deep scan for all types of files including photos, music, films, video, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations and text files Duplicate Cleaner will find any file that is present many times on your computer. You can easily select which copies to delete or move. These files can be deleted to the recycle bin or moved elsewhere. Important system files and programs aren't deleted.

Features:

The all-in-one solution to sorting out your files:

Sort out your pictures:

Finding similar photos or images - even when edited, rotated or resized - is no problem with Duplicate Cleaner.

Tidy up your music collection:

Duplicate Cleaner can scan all popular music formats. Powerful algorithms allow the matching of tracks by similar or exact audio content. You can also match by tags such as Artist and Song Title.

More power when you need it:

Duplicate Cleaner has enough features to satisfy even the most demanding power user: find duplicate folders, unique files, search inside zip files, advanced filtering, automated selection and much more

Finding duplicate files (Diving in):

The program interface makes it easy to start searching for duplicates. You can narrow your search by the type of file, sizes, dates and more. You can also specify which drives and folders to look in. You can even search inside Zip archives.
 
The Selection Assistant lets you select files by groups, dates, drives, folders and more. You can select a favorite folder, and remove files that duplicate it elsewhere, or maybe select the smallest images, or the lowest quality mp3.

Duplicate Cleaner can show you all files in a specific directory with the help of Duplicate Folder browser. You will be able to see duplicated directory trees, and easily mark the ones you don't want to keep.

Status:

included or excluded from the search for duplicates

Protected:

This option let you stay safe. The files in this folder or directory will not be deleted if duplicates found

Master:

This useful feature will let you find duplicate files which only match files in the master folder. You can set many master folders

Scan against self:

This feature allows you to scan within the same folder for duplicates. This means you can compare 'clean' areas (e.g. archives, cd's) against other areas without generating unneeded lists of duplicate files.

Find uniques:

[Image: 1vm92PE.png]

Any files in this folder which do not have duplicates. They will be listed in a separate tab

Scan subfolders:

All subfolders of this folder will be included in the scan.

What to do with duplicate files?

The program will let you choose what to do with your duplicates. You can delete those files or move or copy them. You can even rename duplicate files.

Hard Linking functionality:

 Advanced users may also be interested in the Hard Linking functionality offered in the pro version and supports NFTS file system only.  A hard link is a directory entry for a file. Every file has at least one hard link

Scan Profiles:

You can save "Scan Profiles" and recall different settings for different jobs at the click of a button.

Find duplicate images:

Now you can easily clean up your image library. You can find images that have been rotated, flipped, retouched, resized or saved in a different format thanks to the advanced visual comparison technique.

You will easily decide what to keep with the help of the image browser. This allows you to view the pictures in the duplicate group side-by-side, for comparison. You can also display image and camera tags such as size, date taken, and color depth.

Image fingerprints:

Duplicate Cleaner will store 'fingerprints' of your images. This way if you scan an image archive again, or scan it against a new folder, the cached fingerprint will be used which will speed things up by over 90%.

Image Formats:

Duplicate Cleaner Pro supports all popular Camera RAW image formats.

Find duplicate music:

You can scan and compare audio files using Duplicate Cleaner. Supported formats are MP3, OGG, WMA, M4A, M4P (iTunes), AAC, FLAC and WAV. The program compare audio files by 'listening' to them: looking for similar audio. It can also compare same or similar music tags across formats by Artist, Title and Album. The list of any audio found will include all details such as length, bit rate and sample rate in addition to the usual tags.

The Selection Assistant help you to select the files you are going to remove. For example; shortest version or lowest quality.
