Duplicate Finder is a Cisdem utility that allows you to locate duplicate files on your Mac, regardless of their name, by displaying an easy-to-understand report.
Using a utility of this type, it is possible to restore unnecessarily occupied space, and the peculiarity of the program is the ability to identify duplicates regardless of their name, date of creation or file size. The advanced search function and Scan Engine allow you to control how you search, indicating how to search and which files to search.
The user can speed up the scan by selecting the file type to be considered, ignoring certain documents, and selecting duplicate copies of photos, videos, archives, documents, etc. Internal and external hard drives/SSDs are supported, as well as network volumes.
You can quickly filter out duplicates in Photos (iPhoto) and Music (iTunes), while preserving the application’s file structure.
It is interesting to be able to identify not only identical but also similar images, and to detect and remove similar images that are almost identical with slight differences.
The utility allows you to group duplicate files into different categories: documents, photos, music, videos, archives, packages, etc., display duplicates by name, size, number or type, show duplicates that take up more space, find specific files Using the built-in search tool and automatically highlighting duplicates based on our selection rules to remove them easily.
You can create automatic selection rules, such as automatically flagging the oldest/latest duplicates, or selecting intelligently by file name/location priority. Duplicate files can be moved to the Recycle Bin, to a custom folder or deleted permanently.
Cisdem Duplicate Finder is compatible with macOS 10.11 or later and typically costs €19.99 (single license), €27.99 (2 Mac licenses) or €49.99 (5 Mac license).
At the time of writing, it is possible to find the utility For around €4, included in the BundleHunt fall package. To push it a little, you have to open the package with a payment of 3.5 dollars. Alternatively, if you buy apps for a total of $30 (and you’re spoiled for choice…) the cost will be absorbed. We point out that in the package there is also a very convenient PDF Master at $4 instead of $70.
