The functionality some applications provide is not obvious from their title. Take the Opera web browser, for example. Would you know that it is a web browser by simply looking at its name? Of course, you wouldn’t – you know Opera is a browser because it made a name for itself by being a proper alternative to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.

The functionality other applications provide is obvious from their title. The Key Metric Software-developed application Duplicate File Detective definitely falls in this category. This Windows utility, as its name so adequately points out, will sniff out duplicate files that needlessly take up space on your computer. In a single pass this application will scan folders, drives, removable storage devices, even network shares and will tell you where the duplicate files are hiding.

After Duplicate File Detective identifies duplicate files that waste your disk space, you can choose what to do next. You can move the duplicates to another location, you can ZIP them to save space, or you can just get rid of the duplicates by deleting them.

Duplicate File Detective is easy to use and gets the job done fast. It can be installed in the easiest manner possible, as a couple of clicks are enough to get the program installed. After installing and running the application, the user will notice the simple and graphical interface which allows the user to customize in detail the functionality of the application. After making all the necessary changes, the user can easily run the comparison process using a single mouse click.


The program is highly customizable. Besides that, it features a graphical and intuitive interface. Furthermore, it can rapidly locate duplicate files. What's more, it's able to delete, move, ZIP duplicate files.


The demo version can only be used for 15 days. Duplicate File Detective allows you to find duplicate files in the easiest and quickest way possible, by using an intuitive and simple interface.
