Before you drop some valuable dollars on a larger hard drive, have you ever stopped to consider how much of your disk space is taken up by duplicate files? That's the thing about duplicate files - most times, you aren't even aware of their existence! Sometimes entire directories get duplicated when you accidentally execute a copy operation when you intended to move the files. Other times, you'll download files into different directories, or updated software versions change where their configuration files are stored, without deleting the old ones. No matter what the cause, you can be certain that Duplicate File Detective will root out all of your duplicate files quickly and easily!

Duplicate File Detective is a brilliant piece of file management software that identifies all of the duplicate files across multiple directories, drives, even network shares, and lets you move, compress, or delete them in a snap. You'll instantly experience increased system and application performance when you give your computer lots of elbow room to move! And with native 64-bit support, you never have to worry about having too many duplicate files in too many locations, because Duplicate File Detective will handle it all with ease. A sleek and intuitive interface gives you the power to customize your Duplicate File Detective experience! Dock panels wherever you like, set the program to auto-hide, or close panels entirely - it's all up to you.

Have you been burned by other duplicate file managers that deleted songs that weren't actually duplicates? Duplicate File Detective has advanced support for duplicate song detection, comparing audio tags, bit rates, duration, and so much more - virtually ensuring that if a song is marked as a duplicate, it is TRULY a duplicate. The program even has the ability to peek inside of ZIP archives to ensure that duplicate ZIP files aren't missed, even if they have different header values! Best of all, new hash value storage means even quicker duplicate detection in future sessions!

Key Metric Software @Matt: Sounds like possible Windows shell icon cache corruption. Please contact and we'll help out.

Matt Hi Key Metric.

Thank you for suggesting Windows icon cache corruption as a cause for 'black icons'. I deleted my icon cache database and now all folder icons are displaying properly.

A very nice purchase!

Thanks again.

Jos Andries looks like the previous version [5] to me + update [to 6] = normal price, if I got that right? ... In that case, where lies the promo?

Constantin Florea @Jos Andries, I am sorry about the issue. I have just contacted the vendor to see if he wants to continue running the EveryDay deal for this product.

Kat D What document file types can it preview, if any? (txt, html, docx, pdf, etc) Is side-by-side document preview comparison possible? There are soooo many duplicate deleters out there and they all seem to have users delete files "blindly."

JOI This is really top-notch software... If you are serious about what you are deleting from your drive and want a bit more insight into what it is you are deleting this is the program for you.

With this software, it will be very difficult for you to delete the wrong files or all of the files given the way the information is presented and it also has a nice small preview window for files.

In software, you usually get what you pay for.

Gary User I bought this deal last time it was offered. I'm very satisfied with the program. It does a great job of finding duplicates with many options for dealing with the duplicates.

One of the best features is the ability to replace the duplicates with either a shortcut link, a hard link or a symbolic link (soft link). It is a feature I think worthy of mentioning because it allows you to leave a placeholder of little or no size (depending on which type of link you choose) in the duplicate locations while at the same time deleting the actual file from those locations.

I recently changed my method or organizing clients' file folders, moving from keeping files separated into multiple subdirectories to instead keeping all files in one subdirectory for each client with just hard links and shortcuts to the actual files in the various subdirectories.

However, I have many client folders created under my old system with files divided into many subfolders, sometimes with the same file appearing several of the subfolders. I first copied all the files into a new subdirectory for each client called "AllFiles". Then I ran duplicate file finder.

For the Delete options, I chose to have soft links created for all deleted duplicates and to keep the actual version of each file in the AllFiles subdirectory (because I copied all files in each client folder to the AllFiels subdirectory for each client there was at least one duplicate of every file).

That allowed me to replicate my new system for existing client folders, saving me what would have otherwise been hours of work to create soft links for each individual file then move the originals to the new AllFiles subdirectories.

I realize that such an obscure option won't mean much to many users, but it highlights the fact that there are many similar options that give you the ability to use the program for much more than simply deleting duplicates.

Jason Can anyone confirm my understanding of the license, the FAQ on license say this is Single Machine, Single user. The fine print on bits dujour says you can load on a desktop and laptop. For home this can be restrictive. i.e. Duplicate Cleaner Pro license (similar software, similar price) is Single user, multiple machines.. Would be great if this was similar.

Daniel User Before I pay $40 for a (30% discounted) software, I also want to know something about the company building the software.

But when I click the website button of this deal, I am just left hanging around.

My browser wants to open

But it is Loading Loading Loading Loading Loading Loading Loading - 4ever

Any idea? Is it the wrong URL? Is the companies server too weak to carry the load?

Constantin Florea @Daniel User, I am sorry about the issue. I have fixed the home page URL but the purchase URL still doesn't work. We need the vendor's help to fix the purchase URL and we've emailed the vendor for quite some time but there is no reply back.

Daniel User Hello @Constatin, thanks a lot for your quick information. That's okay - I gonna wait. Please give me a hint when the deal works. Perhaps the vendor agrees to some prolongation? Thanks and best regards, Daniel

Techroe After visiting the Duplicate File Detective website I see that version 7 is the one being offered. It appears Version 6 was released March 15, 2016 and the last updated Version was 6.3.62 (Released January 3, 2020).

This promo is for Version 6. Will this automatically upgrade to 7 or will version 6.3.62 be the only one the buyer can access? If so, is Version 6 End of Life or are you still maintaining and patching that version? - Thanks

Techroe Since my last query in August wasn't answered, perhaps this one will:

Is this Windows 11 compatible?

Will the version we receive be the final version 6.3.62 and is it still maintained?
