Makesoft DuplicateFinder - Fast and efficient duplicate file finder
Review by on
Looking for duplicate files on the hard drive and removing them is a good way to free up some disk space. However, if you think that browsing through each folder and looking at individual files is a good idea, then you would spend a ridiculous amount of time doing this. A better solution is to use a specialized utility, like Makesoft DuplicateFinder. This application is capable of comparing files and identifying duplicates, so you can get rid of them much faster. It has to be mentioned that it works quite fast and setting everything up is an effortless task, even for novice users.

Installing Makesoft DuplicateFinder is a simple and straightforward operation. It doesn't involve any advanced settings and you don't have to install any prerequisite tools. The application works on all popular Windows platforms and it supports both 32 and 64-bit versions.

Preparing a search job is as simple as possible. The software displays your local folders in a tree structure, on the left side of its user interface. All you have to do is click the check boxes, next to the folders you wish to scan. At this point, you can just hit the large Start button, but you can also make a few simple tweaks on the right side of the interface.

By default, the software will try to match files byte by byte, but you can also set it to look for files with the same file names, extensions and dates of creation. Alternatively, you can opt for an advanced matching method, which involves comparing MD5, SHA and CRC values. Finally, you can set Makesoft DuplicateFinder to include or exclude file or file types of your choice and optionally set up a minimum and maximum size threshold.

The scanning process is quite fast. The best part is that results are guaranteed if you have any duplicates, unlike with other applications, where nothing will show up if fail to make a small adjustment or specification somewhere. The results are displayed in a list, in which duplicates are paired and color coded, to make them easier to spot. All that is left to do is to select which files you wish to delete and click a button.

Identifying duplicate files on your hard drive is an effortless task, thanks to Makesoft DuplicateFinder's efficient functionality.

Pros:
The software is capable of finding duplicates quite fast. You can start a scanning process without making any settings if you want to. Makesoft DuplicateFinder can be installed quickly and it doesn't use too many resources.

Cons:
The software could use a file auto-select feature.
