"Find out real duplicate files"
EF Duplicate Files Manager is a Godsend for users who want to find duplicate files in certain folders or across their whole drive in order to save disk space. The software can run big searches matching file names, file sizes or content to locate matches. An attractively-colored interface presents the results found.
Filters can be applied to narrow down which files are suitable and which are not. Certain folders can be selected for searching, while others can be excluded. Zero-length files can be ignored completely. It is also possible to search inside a host of different file archives looking for files, so anyone who uses backups with file archives to save space will also be able to look inside their backup archives too. Generate a report of file duplicates and save it as a HTML, CSV or plain text file.
The 3.57 MB file for EF Duplicate Files Manager takes almost no time to install. There were no malicious software, adware or other unwanted item added or offered.
The software requires a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. Support includes Windows 95 and later versions. There is also a ZIP file archive available as a portable app that does not need to be installed and so can run on a USB flash drive.
The EF Duplicate Files Manager window includes a menu system at the top and toolbar button icons next level down. The location to search can be entered in the location bar below this area. There is a […] browse button to access the file dialog window to pick the drives and folders to search for duplicate files in. There is then a [>>] icon to the right of the browse button to execute the search.
There are search options below the location bar where the user can get much more specific about what types of files they wish to match. This includes looking for matches for file size, file name, or content. The user can specify to use the recursive folder option to dip into the sub folders rather than only looking through the main folders selected. Most compressed file archives can also be searched. Zero-length files can be skipped too. There is also a more advanced filtering option and an ability to ignore certain folders within a broader search.
Results are shown in a colorful row-by-row manner which makes the results easier to scan and read.
