Find and delete duplicates
Exact Duplicate Finder is a free app from InDeep Software. As the name suggests, this utility software lets you easily find identical files on your computer. It then frees up space by filtering files by type and sending clones to the trash bin. Lightweight, this program is simple and easy to use. It does not have advanced options as compared to other similar software, but it does the job very efficiently.
Scan, detect, and delete
Exact Duplicate Finder comes with a plain interface, with only a few options displayed on a single screen. Novice users will not have a hard time using the app. To find duplicates, you only need to select a location that the program will scan. The location can be either a whole drive or a particular folder. To make the scan faster, you can also specify the file type to look for or choose to skip system folders.
Once the scanning is complete, the app will then display file groups and locations in a multi-panel layout. This allows you to view the files and quickly remove all duplicates. Exact Duplicate Finder conducts a byte-by-byte analysis to ensure that all displayed files are indeed exact copies of other files. More than that, it does not require administrator privileges to delete duplicates. Unless, of course, you are trying to get rid of system-protected files.
As noted, the software is lightweight and is free to use. It is compatible with Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and XP. However, while it is user-friendly, experienced users may find the lack of advanced options. The app does not allow users to do anything to the scanned files other than sending them to the recycle bin. You cannot move or copy them to another folder or drive.
Basic duplicate finder
To sum it up, the Exact Duplicate Finder app is a handy tool if you are looking for a duplicate finder program. The app finds all duplicate files on your computer effortlessly. It is easy to use and conducts thorough scanning of your folders and drives. However, those looking for more advanced features will be in for a disappointment, as this app offers the basic functions only. That said, it is still worth considering for its ease of use and performance.
