5. What are Similars?

Sometimes, you can have two or more folders that have both duplicate and unique files.

These folders are not duplicates, and cannot be found with an ordinary duplicate search tool. Luckily, you got a right one. Duplicate File Remover Pro
finds such folders as well.

We call such folders Similars or similar folders.

  • similar folders

  • duplicates in similars

The folders have 2 duplicate files and one unique file.

When duplicates’ scan is complete, similar folders will be displayed on the last Similars section.

The folders are not duplicates, they are Similars.
