Ratings and Reviews
Fast, Elegant Design and Worth the Upgrade
DFF has been wonderful in helping me to remove duplicate files after migrating three portable hard drives onto one large disk. It saved me 415GB of file space out of the original 1.9GB. I removed thousands of duplicates within less than a day after years of copying files from one drive to another to create redundant copies.
The duplicate folders and similar folders features are well worth the upgrade to remove multiple copies of directories at once, instead of removing each file seperately. This saved me a great deal of time as I had multiple copies of photo directories.
The interface is fast and elegant. DFF took about an hour or two to analyze hundreds of thousands of files (1.9GB). It neatly organized them so one could remove duplicate folders, remove duplicate files in similar folders, and leave the unique files behind. All other files can be removed one at a time, and “Auto-Select” saves time clicking on which version you would like to remove. The application also safeguards you from removing all copies of a single file or directory by forcing you to enable that function and warns you politely before marking all copies for removal, if you chose to do so manually.
Thank you for this wonderful application!

Thank you for such detailed review!
Since you have PRO we recommend to use "Select Duplicates in Folder" feature to select duplicates in bulk when you need to find duplicates in several folders or disks. The feature allows you to specify the folder to remove duplicates and another one to keep original files. https://nektony.com/duplicate-finder-free/select-duplicates-in-folder

Very very helpful. You will crave more.
Bottom line - use this app. It is great. Once you use it, you may find something you wish it could do to make your elimination of duplicates easier.
So, I think there could be an easier way to do some tasks if I could sort the duplicates by file. For example, I compared my download file (which really bloated on me) to my Google Drive. The results showd me all the individual file and folder duplicates within the Google Drive itself, within the download folder and betweeen GD and Downloads. But, what I really want is to see what duplicates are just in the download folder that I have already saved to various files. Then, I can eliminate those download files and folders, allowing me to then properly save or delete the balance of downloads. We receive so many attachments or web content that goes to downloads. Plus, when using google docs, office 365 online and other shared online toos, we have to upload, download files that often travel through Downloads folder. Maybe I am missing some buried feature here - but it seemed to me that sorting the duplicates by folder might get me what I want - a global list of duplicates in the Download folder compared to the global list of drives and folders I want to compare them to.
I dropped a Raid array on it with about 1.1 million files, and it completed indexing in a reasonable amount of time (15 minutes or so). I have folders and files in one area, and then 'backup' folders of the files, but older and not in sync. Using the app 'Similar', it displayed the two folders. Example: REACH folder in two places. The dialog shows the path to each folder and duplicate and unique files. So... I want to merge the two, delete the duplicates, move the unique files, and then delete the 'source' folder. Nope. And, in the merge CONFIRM spec there is no path info, so I'm not sure which folder is which. It also seems to REVERSE the folder display from the original merge spec. Confusing. I also found I needed to display both folders first so I could manually delete the source folder, which is SLOW at best. It can't be done from the 'Similar' action because once the merge happens it indexes to the next 'similar' folder. I believe the app could be tweaked to do what I want, but for now it's a deal breaker. Of course, maybe it can do that now and I just couldn't find it. The merge options dialog doesn't offer what I want as far as I could tell from experimenting.

Thank you for the feedback.
Now we are finishing the next update with dramatically updated Merge Folders feature. The update will be available at App Store in 6 weeks.
Contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to get the beta of update earlier.
P.S. All your comments are accepted, and new Merge provides better experience, really close to the thing you asked.
