Duplicate RemoverWhy is disk space not constantly sufficient for us? There are a lot of reasons: small hard disk size, a plenty of "heavy" files like game folders or video-files, surplus of unnecessary files. But weíll talk about one more reason - presence of duplicate files.
Duplicate files are file copies. They can be full copies and incomplete copies. How duplicate files get on hard disk? Very simply - we canít know about all files kept on PC therefore we easily miss copies.
How to struggle with the problem? To take advantage of the free program utility AllDup which will easily find and remove all useless files.
In what is program uniqueness? It is that it gives a huge tooling for search and duplicate files removal.
In the software the opportunity of effective files selection for search is realized. In the program you can choose the files types which have copies as you consider. For example music files - with the help of AllDup you can find duplicate mp3 files while ignore the ID3 tags. If you consider your hard disk to have many mp3 duplicate files safely choose "Ignore ID3 Tags of MP3 files" option and the duplicate finder will easily find and engage deleting duplicate songs. This also concerns films, images, etc. Deleting duplicate mp3 songs it becomes easier!
OK you say let AllDup be a good duplicate finder and a duplicate remover (or remover for other files) and it easily finds duplicate files. But what can the utility do besides that? As a good finder and remover (for example jpg duplicate finder and mp3 duplicate remover) AllDup is able to work with search directories. Certainly in fact the program needs to know where to search!
Now it is very simply to choose directories. Catalogues are submitted as a folders tree from which you can choose necessary one. Also youí re able to choose all hard disk for search but remember the duplicate files search term (for example of mp3 duplicate files) depends on a directory size. Therefore we advise to choose the directories youíre not sure in.
Certainly analysis and duplicate files search is the most important process. After it is finished it is time to make the final decision. Yes, we speak about the further destiny of duplicate files. Only to delete, you tell. Certainly removal for example of mp3 duplicate songs is the most obvious way. But itís not unique. Also you can remove files in a recycle bin (we hope you understand difference of two methods), to move to a separate special folder or to copy. The decision is for you.
And the last thing; you consider duplicate files search results to be able to be necessary for you in the future? No problems. It is enough to keep the results in a file and to return to them at any time.
Remember AllDup is freeware and works for you!
