Easy Duplicate File Finder
Original review: Easy Duplicate Finder review at PC World by Preston Gralla
Find and kill duplicate files.
Use your PC long enough, and it will get littered with duplicate files of all kinds. Graphics files, .doc files, media files, .dll files, you'll be amazed at how many duplicates you have. They clog up your hard disk, take away precious hard disk space, and make it hard to find the files you want.
This simple freebie will find duplicate files, then let you delete the ones you don't want. Point it at your hard disk or selected folders, and it goes to work, finding duplicates. It then gives you a full report, and lets you clean them en masse, or just selected ones. There's some nice intelligence built in as well. It tells you how much disk space duplicate files take up, for example, and lets you protect system files so that you don't accidentally delete any important files your PC needs in order to run properly.
