    "Does the job."

    July 2, 2013  |   By drew185

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Does a thorough search and conveniently lists the duplicate files. Then with a push of the button, the duplicates are checked and ready for your next action. They can be deleted outright or saved to the trash file in case they are needed before final removal.

    Cons

    None that I noticed.

    Summary

    I would recommend this product.

    "Horrible in the extreme"

    June 26, 2013  |   By Lerianis6

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    None, it doesn't even find duplicate files correctly.

    Cons

    Doesn't find duplicate files correctly, says that there are duplicate files that don't exist, and only searches 30 duplicate files unless you pay for the paid version.

    Summary

    Stay away, this product is worse than useless, there are much better programs with the functionality that this program illegitimately says it has for free out there.

    "Good program for the price (or lack of one)"

    April 27, 2013  |   By Midhiel

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Rescue Center is a convenient safety net
    Free!

    Cons

    Slow when searching a lot of files (to be expected, I guess)
    No log of what has been found/deleted
    Doesn't delete files from the same folders
    Doesn't detect all duplicates - sometimes misses the obvious ones

    Summary

    My computer's a bit of an organizational nightmare, after it's crashed a couple of times and I've had to back it up again and again. My music was the worst - most of it was in the Music folder, then copied again with more things into iTunes Music, then copied again with still more things into iTunes Music>Music. I had up to four or five copies of some things. It was ridiculous. This program cleaned most of that up.

    It wasn't flawless, as it doesn't always delete from the same folder. Say you've got the same files in A, B, and C - sometimes it deletes duplicates from A, other times from B, sometimes from C. So that's going to take a while to organize. And it misses some really obvious duplicates, too. I've got more than one folder of the same album in the artist's folder, but it didn't detect any duplicates at all. It also didn't detect the duplicates when they were in the same folder. Strange.

    Overall, though, this was a pretty neat little program. It cleared up a good 32gb of space for me! Considering it's free, I think it's definitely worth a try. I'd imagine most people's folders aren't as messy as mine, anyway.

    "Quick, accurate"

    April 14, 2013  |   By mwcasey

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Accurate file identification

    Cons

    Doesn't do Office files as an option.

    Summary

    Does what it does well. Needs to provide more file selection options. Could also use a filter for files used by multiple applications duplicated in each program location.

    "Will not by anything from this company."

    April 9, 2013  |   By philipjanze

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    I have no pros

    Cons

    Auslogic put a toolbar on my browsers that I am unable to remove from Chrome even after uninstalling their program. My opion is this is barely better than malware in their tactics to make a sale.

    "It did exactly what I needed."

    March 8, 2013  |   By Dwaine

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Allows me to select specific folders to compare, which is what I needed.

    Cons

    It didn't seem very fast, but that was not a concern for me.

    Summary

    Works as advertised and did exactly what I needed, which was to compare specific folders on the system for duplicate files.

    "Fantastic Application"

    March 6, 2013  |   By pkr1

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Easy,free & reliable

    Cons

    In the form "Select Search Criteria (4/4)" if you happen to press
    "Select" combo box in order to "Select all duplicates in each group" automatically duplicate files are checked. But 2 files from the test folder and the other 2 files from the test1 folder. It is optional if you do not press "Clean up junk files" button in the very last result form.

    Summary

    "Auslogics Duplicate File Finder" Version 2.5.1.0 is free for personal use.

    I deliberately created two folders test and test1 in C drive. I did copied 5 image files in test and test1 folders respectively. I did invoked "Auslogics Duplicate File Finder" application. I did checked test and test1 check boxes respectively. I did selected look for these type files only radio button and checked Images check box. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (2/4)" by pressing next button. I did not check any check box in this form. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (3/4)" by pressing next button. I did not check any check box in this form. I navigated to the next form "Select Search Criteria (4/4)" by pressing next button. I did selected "To Recycle Bin" radio button. I did pressed Search button. All the 10 image files found in test and test1 folders got listed along with a check box adjacent to the file names. I manually did checked the check box of the duplicate files that need to be deleted. I did pressed the combo box "Delete Selected Files". I got the alert message in a dialog about the intended action. I did pressed OK button and the deleted files were moved to "Recycle Bin". And action results were displayed in the immediate form.

    "Useless application - should be removed from CNET"

    March 2, 2013  |   By gsj1

    Version: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder 2.5.1.0

    Pros

    Did find duplicates but with multiple issues. See cons section for details.

    Cons

    Auslogic Duplicate File Finder v2.5.1.0 was able to find duplicate files, however, there were multiple issues with the product itself. Looks like the product was written by a high school student over a weekend.

    1. No way to pause search once it starts.
    2. No way to save output of duplicate file search.
    3. No logs of what is done by the user or the software for later analysis.
    4. Once you complete duplicate file search, and click on another button to see what options are available, you'll loose all your search output and have to state search all over again! Totally asinine.
    5. If you select duplicate files and choose "Delete Selected Files->To Rescue Center", it removed files from the wrong folder and didn't save files in Rescue Center as stated.
    6. After deleting duplicates, software searches for junk files, however, doesn't list the file it asks to clean up. Again totally juvenile.
