File duplicator remover

  Taw® 18:14 12 Mar 05

After a recent reinstal I have lost a useful little programme that searched the hdd for duplicate files and removed them. i got the info fom the pca forum but cannot find it under the search. The programme brought up a little window and you dragged the folder to be searched from one side to the other. It was free which is why i am looking it again

On seaching it was called dupelocator and the link was from Pesala, but no longer works.

DupeLocator (85K) click here Finds duplicated files by comparing bytes, ignoring names and dates.

Looks like I deleted it while having a clean out. The link is working again now.

The authors of Duplocator stopped development on it and retired some while back, that's why I put their freeware on my own webspace. Their domain has now gone too.

Ace Utilities does a reasonable job.

Where they all fall down in my experience is on music files. For some reason the versions on compilation CD's nearly always have slight differences - track name, file size etc etc - and you end up having to seek them out manually.
