We are excited to announce the release of Duplicate File Finder version 7.1, a powerful tool that helps you find and remove duplicate files on your Mac. This update brings some new features that make the app even more useful and convenient.

Duplicate File Finder start window

One of the new features is the ability to compare folders for duplicate content. You can select two folders and scan them for identical files. This is handy if you want to check if the folders are duplicates or they have unique files.

Once the application scans two folders, you can see their duplicate content, remove unneeded duplicates or merge folders to organize your files.

Another new feature is the ability to compare files. You can select two and check if they are exactly the same.
