Find duplicate files

AcuteFinder helps you to find duplicate files on your system and delete them. Thus, you can free up a lot of disk space taken by the extra copies and reduce clutter on your disks.



AcuteFinder does not only take into account items like file name, size or timestamp, but reads through possible duplicates and calculates their checksums. This way, it is guaranteed that the files are really identical, and you can delete the extra copies with full confidence.


AcuteFinder can find files that have different names, like "my.doc" and "Copy of my.doc". Basically, if files are of the same size and have the same checksum, they are considered identical. AcuteFinder uses by default CRC32, a 32-bit checksum, but you can choose to use MD5 hash (128-bit) as a final step in file comparison for even more accuracy.


Most importantly, AcuteFinder can help you to reclaim disk space wasted by all the extra copies of files. It will also help you to reduce clutter on your disks, and streamline backups and virus scanning, resulting in less time and media for these activities.
