Duplicate File Cleaner v2.6 + Serial
Using the computer for many months at a time is a guarantee that you have at least some duplicate files hidden on the hard drive. These files are simply useless, taking a lot hard drive space and slowing down the system, as well as being a burden when you want to create a backup.
Duplicate File Cleaner is an app designed to solve this problem by identifying and deleting the problem files. The software comes with a nice, intuitive interface that should be easy to figure out by all users.
There are several types of scans supported by this tool, namely “Basic”, “Outlook”, “Music” and “Picture”.
The program requires that you select the drive or directory where it should look for duplicate files before starting the scanning process. It’s possible to browse the folders on the computer by simply clicking on the partition name, which then expands into a treeview, making the entire process a very simple one.
You may even filter down the search by choosing one of the available scan filters, as well as other particularities, such as the date, size and extension.
The “Basic” feature of this app looks for documents, pictures, music, zero-size files, videos and custom file types. While looking for music or image files it’s also possible to select the file format (MP3, WMA, RM, OGG and FLAC for audio files and BMP, JPEG, GIF, WMF, PNG and ICO for pictures).
Also, you can search through Outlook files and delete redundant emails and contacts.
When the search is complete, the files can be sent to the Recycle Bin, deleted completely, moved to a folder or “Pulverized”. This last feature deletes files by overwriting them until they are beyond recovery.
The app also has a few other features. For instance, it allows you to synchronize files and thus analyze the differences between folders, clean up junk files, clean duplicate bookmarks and other options.
All in all, Duplicate File Cleaner is a useful tool that can optimize the computer in a few easy steps. While the intuitive interface makes this app easy to use, most features require at least some prior experience with this type of software.
