Why Look for Duplicates?You may be surprised the first time you run a duplicate file finder on your computer. An average computer may have hundreds even thousands of duplicate files. There are many reasons this occurs, for example a person may continue to transfer new photos over from their digital camera. During each transfer previous photos are being copied again with the new photos. Before too long there may be multiple copies of the same photo on the computer.
Having multiple duplicates on your computer wastes space, creates longer backups and in general can be just annoying when you go to look for a particular file. Easy Duplicate Finder will keep your computer organized by periodic usage, and could even save you money if you pay for a backup service.

Duplicate files can be deleted, renamed, moved, or archived.

Choose a Comparison Method
- CRC32 Checksum + File Size. Checksum comparison involves reading the file from the beginning to the end and generating a unique number calculated based on its contents. This number is stored and used to compare the contents to other files (using the same method) to determine if they are truly identical. If you plan on regularly checking for duplicates, it is recommended you choose this method.
- Byte-by-Byte. Reads the entire contents of two files and checked for equality in parallel. This method is very accurate but tends to take longer, particularly for large files (such as media files).
