Duplicate Cleaner is a free duplicate file remover that just seems to get better with age.
What marks Duplicate Cleaner out for greatness is that apart from being free and attractively designed, it's supremely easy to use while retaining considerable file management power. The main interface is divided into 2 - Search Criteria and Duplicate Files. Specify what you want the app to look for in the first, and deal with the results in the second.
Filtering options are often what make duplicate cleaning a little complicated, but you won't have that problem with Duplicate Cleaner. The options are self-explanatory and clearly displayed, and in the top menu bar you'll find a Selection Assistant that lets you get even more specific. The Duplicate Cleaner scan is fast and presents you with a concise summary of what it has found.
One you can see what's duplicated, you'll find it really easy to deal with them. Right click on individual entries to get more information or perform batch actions, or go through them manually if there aren't many. And don't make the mistake of thinking that you can only erase duplicates - use the File Removal tool and you'll be able to move, rename or hardlink the files too.
One of Duplicate Cleaner's earlier problems was that it had an annoying nag screen and it didn't look too snazzy. These days, however, we can definitely say that Duplicate Cleaner has remedied both these issues and is now one of the best duplicate removers out there - if you have problems with doubled-up files, download it asap!
