Best software to find and remove duplicate files
What is the best software on the market for removing duplicate files?
Here is a list comparing the main software packages available for deleting duplicate files on a computer. Most of them can only delete images, but some can delete audio files or even videos!
The list includes around twenty software packages, all of which have been installed and had the same test protocol. In order to remain as objective as possible, I used a point system to provide a ranking.
Number of binary files: 107017 including 37373 duplicates
Number of photos: 8152 including 20 duplicates
Number of music files: 897 including 20 duplicates
Number of videos: 72 including 5 duplicates
Test environment: 6-core processor and SSD disk
(+10 if the function is present and fully functional): Binary file analysis +10, Photo analysis +10, Video analysis +10, Audio file analysis +10, Managing a memory cache +10, 64-bit version +10, Integrated duplicate view +10, Real-time results display +10, English version +10.
Analysis of the results:
The Duplicate Media Finder software is the clear market leader kdo-rg.com. It is the only one that can find all types of similar files. It is also extremely fast. In addition, it displays all the duplicates found in the form of thumbnails, which is extremely practical. However, this obviously comes at a price!
There are other software packages that I also liked and that you can find at the top of the table. Feel free to use them if they meet your needs.
