Publisher's description

Modern hard drives can easily hold up to tens and hundreds of thousands files. As we don't really need to save disk space these days, we often toss files around, create backups, make multiple copies of folders and then completely forget about them. However, this can hardly be called a rational way of storing data, let alone the fact that it creates a mess in your computer. When you think that the time has come to clean up and eradicate the obvious file redundancy, you suddenly realize that it will take you days to manually compare and delete duplicate files. If this is exactly the problem you are facing or will face in the nearest future, relax, as you are not in much of a trouble. Advanced Duplicates Finder will do the trick.
Advanced Duplicates Finder possesses a simple wizard-driven interface which guides you through the process. This compact application was specifically designed to automate the process of searching, identifying and deleting duplicate and void files scatted across your hard drive or any other media. Which is more, this software finds MP3 files with similar ID3 tags, similar images and files with similar names and size. In practice, it allows you save disk space by removing multiple instances of the same song or delete sets of test shots that your camera made in the burst mode. Not only does Duplicates Finder allow you to remove such files, but it also gives you an opportunity to move them to an isolated folder and then restore retaining the original location. It comes really handy when you just want to get rid of the mess, but doubt the necessity to actually delete the files. Yet another option is to find duplicate files and then save their paths to a text file. This will help you do the cleanup in the future, but not waste time on searching for the files again. Finally, the application is capable of searching ZIP archives as well.
That said, are you still having doubts that the handy tool is something your software set can stay without?
