Easy Duplicate Finder features
Easy Duplicate Finder is the most feature-packed program to manage duplicate files that is available today. Here is what it has to offer:
- Duplicate photo and image finder
- Duplicate mp3 finder
- Duplicate email finder (Outlook plugin)
- Search by file name, size, date
- Comparison by content
- mp3 tags comparison
- iTunes and Windows Media libraries sync
- Can delete dead iTunes track references
- iPhoto sync
- Windows and Mac support
All these features make Easy Duplicate Finder stand out. The feature that we liked most was comparison by content. This feature is truly invaluable. Even though it takes longer to scan all your files and compare them, this feature makes the program error-proof because it will only detect true duplicates and ignore files that share the same file name but contain modifications.
We were pleasantly surprised by how quick the program scanned a 320GB hard drive when we used the checksum method. Easy Duplicate Finder found all the duplicates and presented them as a list. Deleting duplicate files was equally quick. The scan did take longer when we compared files by content, but that was expected and didn’t last too long.
Ease of Use
Using Easy Duplicate Finder to manage duplicate files was very easy. The program interface is somewhat basic, but it’s very clean and all features are very easy to find. Even computer novices will find the program very intuitive and user friendly.
Easy Duplicate Finder has a free limited version that limits the number of duplicate files you can delete using the program and a paid full version ($39.95). Volume discounts are available.
[box]The Verdict: Easy Duplicate Finder is a great program that allows you to manage duplicate files in a quick and easy way.[/box]
