Download of the Week: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder

Creation of duplicate files is a very common issue with many users. When we are in a hurry, we tend to accidentally copy file(s) more than once resulting in duplication and inevitably leading to many more problems. Finding and removing duplicate files manually can be very difficult. Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is a nifty little application that helps you detect duplicate files on your PC and delete them. It is a good idea to use this application before running Disk Defragment or scanning for viruses on your computer since you can save a lot of time on going through duplicate files and folders.
This program does not detect the duplicate files with their name and extension alone; it scans the content and decides whether they are twin files.

The Interface is pretty straight-forward. You can choose the partitions you want to scan for duplicate files. The scanning is very fast and you are presented with the results containing groups of duplicate files. Make sure that you leave one file in every group since it is the only copy left behind.
