Stop cluttering your disk space with meaningless copies of files. With just one click, Duplicate Finder finds all duplicate files on your hard disk. It quickly scans your disk and clearly presents all the duplicates so you can selectively choose which to delete.

A newly added feature, "Photo Clean", helps you clean duplicate photos in the Photos Library!

Duplicate Finder is brought to you by the same team that created Dr. Cleaner. It features an easy-to-use drag and drop user interface and includes the following functions to keep your disk clean and organized:

• Thorough and selective scan — utilizes a fast and accurate scanning technique that scans your entire Mac. You can choose to scan your entire home folder or some specific folder(s).

• Smart and accurate selection — duplicate files are selected not only by file names, but also by their contents. Files are shown in detailed previews. You can also choose the "Auto Select" feature that recommends which copy to delete.

• Easy and safe decision — duplicates can be sorted by file type and listed with their full path for you to track to the original location. You can decide if they should be sent to Trash or permanently deleted.

We value your feedback! Please comment in the App Store or submit ideas and requests directly to our developers through our support portal: http://Appletuner.trendmicro.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8).

Comments and Ratings for Duplicate Finder - Retrieve and Remove Duplicate Files

What are you paying for? (1.3.0)
08/04/2017 07:23:47 1/5 By Feeling unimpressed
Pretty much no different from the duplicate finder in the free Dr cleaner app ! Can’t even scan expansion drives

not useful at all (1.3.0)
29/01/2017 09:14:03 1/5 By duplicated photos
Got interested by the so called”photo clean” but you cant even click the iPhoto or Photos buttons in Pictures. I paid 9.99 quid but found out I cant delete those duplicated photos? What a great application, hope nobody support this application.

No Delete! Just Duplicate Find It! (1.3.0)
04/10/2016 16:09:00 5/5 By jmessenbird
Eventhough Apple Macs are superior computers I find if I want to move a file on the Mac I have to keep the original, there seems to be no ‘Cut & Paste’ or ‘Move’ command like Windows, I only get offered ‘Copy & Paste’ on my Mac. With Duplicate Finder problem sorted this app shows me where all the copies are and I choose which I want to trash simply by ticking them. A piece of life being mad easy, nice!

Save your money and buy Gemini II or Cisdem DuplicateFinder (1.3.0)
06/06/2016 19:02:00 3/5 By frostie101
Okay, but far from great. I’d recommend saving your money and buying Gemini II or Cisdem DuplicateFinder instead. Admittedly both or more expensive, but both are far more comprehensive where it counts, allowing you to compare the various duplicates before deleting anything and providing far more metadata about the duplicates to help you make the right decisions. I found this program seriously lacking on both fronts and doesn’t give you much confidence when making sure you’re in fact deleting the most appropriate duplicates. If you’re happy for the app to make decisions on which duplicates to delete, then it probably works fine for you, but if you want to make extra sure you’re deleting the right stuffs, then it’s not so good.

Easy to use (1.3.0)

I’m very impressed with just how easy this is to use and how effective it is.

Simply Awesome (1.3.0)
23/03/2016 20:37:00 5/5 By Pepe728
This duplicat finder is so easy to use and shows the exact path where you can find the duplicated documents, so you can choose which location you want to deleted from.

AMAZING!!! Duplicate Finder (1.3.0)

Don’t upgrade to you try this one! (1.2.0)
10/02/2016 19:58:00 5/5 By jmessenbird
Duplicate Finder has really put some new life into to my trusty old Apple Mac. Before installing this I thought I need to upgrade and spend hundreds on a new computer, my one was grinding to a halt. When moving files on an Apple Mac they get moved alright but the originals are still kept (In Windows/PC they get deleted). I thought I would a couple of duplicates ie 2 of the same file but up to 6,8 or 9 in some cases. There is 1,000s of items cluttering my hard drive up and I am already seeing speed improvements on my computer and I haven’t even chipped top of the iceberg. What a cheap upgrade for £7.99! And and you still get to keep the computer that have became a trusty old friend in your IT world.

Disappointing and unnecessary (1.2.0)
13/01/2016 09:01:00 2/5 By Sailordave1959
I tried this add to see if it added significant differences to facilities provided within Apple, and overcoming the usual requirement to learn and understand a new product, ultimately discovered it does nothing more than was readily available within Apple anyway. I gave it 2 star’s as ‘hate it” is subjective and reserved in my mind to things that damage your current set-up. This doesn’t do that, but in no way does it add to it either, so I would advocate saving your money.

Awful Excuse of an app (1.2.0)
07/01/2016 21:42:00 1/5 By dmcmsn
This app is horrible, i used the duplicate finder and it has wiped out mostly every photo and song i ever had on my computer. Very unhappy and i request a refund. Not happy at all, so many memoires lost.

04/01/2016 12:32:00 5/5 By ]geoff
one of the best programs i have installed on my Mac Fast,easy to use.

Nope (1.2.0)
02/01/2016 14:59:00 1/5 By ste-redz
This may be touted as easy-to-use, but it doesn’t work. I tested the app by creating a folder containing two identical folders just with different names, each or the identical folders contained files varying in size from 11k to 145mb. It proudly informed me, ‘Congratulations! No duplicate files found’. I’m just glad it only cost me 79p otherwise it would have been a huge mistake.

Has Met My Every Duplicate File Needs. (1.2.0)
22/12/2015 13:50:00 5/5 By Bendibow
I must applaud the recent update that clears duplicate photos it is so much more convenient and easier to use than Duplicate Photo Cleaner.

Almost five star (1.1.0)
13/12/2015 10:09:00 4/5 By Peacson
Finds duplicates and provides enough information for immediate decision on whether to delete or not or at least encourages you to investigate further. Does not pick up duplicate pictures in Photos for Mac but does in Photoshop Elements 13. It is the ease of use that makes this a simple but effective tool. I’ve been reorganising my files and information so this application has been a great help. If I hadn’t noticed the issue with Photos for Mac, which may be due to the way Photos stores images, I would have given this application five stars. Easy to justify the spend.

Lots of space freed up! (1.1.0)
08/12/2015 17:31:00 5/5 By Crazyslug
I’ve only just got it but it’s already deleted a lot of my duplicate files (why I have so many I’ll never know!) But it works great and definately does what it says. Well worth the measley £4! Great job guys!

30/11/2015 18:30:00 3/5 By zomosas
Only used it once so far — but it works reasonably quickly, asks for you to allow the path it has to follow (ie user) brings up list of duplicates as well as mentioning the criteria by which it identifies duplicates and then itf you decide to delete duplicates it places them in the trash bin — so you still can check if you are not sure about the files you want to delete. Overall it’s simple easy to use and seems to do what it says on the packet. However this is a review after only one use so for now I will give it three stars — over aperiod of time and more uses that no of stars could go down or up - time will tell.

So easy even I can use it! (1.1.0)
08/11/2015 11:17:00 5/5 By Canvey computer illiterate
Being a complete idiot when it comes to computers I found Duplicate Finder easy to install and very easy to run. Worked well and i didn’t have to do much!!

Duplicate finder. (1.1.0)

This is a brilliant piece of software would definitely recommend to anyone.

Only Just Started!! (1.1.0)
06/11/2015 11:31:00 4/5 By Godz72
Only just used and seems okay for starters.

disappointing (1.1.0)
27/10/2015 08:46:00 2/5 By unhappypodcastguy
doesnt pick up half the duplicates even when scanning within the same folder. this app must have a feature to display both files in the app. when checking manually i found some non-duplicate files were flagged by the app. If i could get a refund, i would!

easy to use (1.1.0)
25/10/2015 13:35:00 5/5 By Emily liu94
not only cleans duplicate file, documents, it also cleans residules after delating a software.

Okay - but lacking in reassuring features (1.1.0)
25/10/2015 10:07:00 2/5 By Dingo12345
Not too sure about this app. I bought it because the price was less than competitior products and the freeware solution I use, Dupe Guru, hasn’t been updated in a while. It does work but, so far, I’ve noticed it only identifies files with identical MD5 hashes. Nothing too clever about that really - which is kind of what I might expect from a 2MB app. It’s disappointing though because I was hoping for a more graded approach to identifying closely similar files where, for example, redundant and very similar versions could be flagged up for user consideration. I think this is such a basic feature that it is a shortcoming for a pid deuplicate finder app not to offer it. As it is even very closely related files are not flagged up. Hopefully the app will develop over time hopefully implementing a slightly clever similarity index. I would not buy it again in its current form.

Finally something that does it’s job well! (1.1.0)
23/10/2015 20:40:00 5/5 By Kenny the Mac
Have been using Dr. Cleaner now for some time, and find it really helps and keeps my computers running ever so well. NOW this amzing kit really does help increase disk space from all the clutter of duplicate files!!! It’s easy to use, and because of that you should not make any mistakes! Well done Tren Micro Inc.

Duplicates no longer! (1.1.0)
23/10/2015 14:38:00 5/5 By Shoalshook
Brill, works like a dream :-)

quick and easy (1.1.0)
22/10/2015 11:13:00 4/5 By gumbooted
Early days — first day I’ve used it actualy. Gives plenty of info as to time and description of when the duplication happened. Thats useful in case you you just omitted to put in place a new name for a file you had amended and somehow both were retained. For me that happened re files in microsoft word and open office that were duplicated before I imported them to my Mac and started using pages. It was a shock having to pay. But the produces of the product deserve to be paid for there hard work.
