Duplicate File Finder Free mode vs. Pro mode

Usually, you may not even guess how many duplicate files exist on your Mac and the significant space they take up on your hard drive. Manual searching for duplicates is not so easy and takes up so much time. That’s why we have created Duplicate File Finder, designed to help you quickly find and remove completely identical files that may be located in different places on your Mac or external drive.

Duplicate File Finder is free to download from the App Store. Also, the application provides a Pro mode that is available with in-App Purchase and gives you more possibilities for a quick duplicates cleanup on Mac. Let’s take a look at a list of features for both application versions.

  • Free mode version

    1. Detection and listing of all duplicate files and folders.
    2. Support of any drive type. Can scan folders, hard drives and even network drive.
    3. Quick removal of duplicate files.
    4. QuickLook option to preview duplicates.
    5. Option to view the duplicate files directory and quickly open them in the Finder.
    6. Auto-Select feature to quickly select duplicates in specific folders.
    7. Сapability to add any file, folder or file extension to the Skip List.
    8. Sorting of duplicates by different categories (type, name, count, path and size) for fast and easy search.
    9. Tuning the speed of duplicates search process by regulating the size of files that should be scanned.
  • Pro mode version (in-App Purchase)

    The Pro mode provides all the options of the free version and has some great additional features:

    1. Removal not only of duplicate files, but copies of folders as well.
    2. Similars Tab, where you can operate similar folders, folders which contain both duplicate and similar files.
    3. Support of hidden files. Can find and remove even hidden duplicate files and folders.
    4. Cleanup hints section which provides useful tips for quicker and smarter removal of duplicates.

As you can see, the free version of Duplicate File Finder is enough to get rid of useless data copies and easily remove duplicate files. While the free mode suits users who don’t have too many duplicates, the Pro version is recommended for those who may have tons of duplicates and need the most efficient application version. Thus, after upgrading to Pro, the cleanup process is even faster with smart hints, ability to delete duplicate folders at once and find even hidden duplicates. Let’s go a bit deeper into these features.

  • 1. Duplicate Folders

    It may happen that you have different folders that are completely identical. While with the free program mode you need to select and review each duplicate file in the folder separately, with the Pro mode you can select the entire duplicate folder. You thus spend less time on the cleanup process and use it more efficiently.

    Once again, Similars are folders that contain not only duplicate files but also unique files. You can preview all these folders in the Similars tab and compare their data. One more great feature is that you don’t have to worry about your unique files as the application allows you to select and remove only duplicates in these folders. Read more about Similars >>
