Find and remove duplicate files on your computer

Select your preferences on which photos to keep

Step Two - Review the results and select what to keep...

Duplicate Sweeper will display the duplicate files found in your selected folders. A summary of the duplicate files by type is shown - ordered by total file size - so you can see what is taking up your disk space at a glance.

For each set of duplicate files, Duplicate Sweeper shows the number of files duplicated and how many files you have selected to delete. In the example below, the file "Blogs.png" has been found twice. One of these files has been selected to be deleted (shown in red).

For each duplicate set, you can automatically select to keep the newest or oldest file. This selection can be made on individual groups of files, for file types or for all the duplicate groups found.

If you're not sure which file to keep, you can preview files content in Duplicate Sweepers preview panel. Of course all the files in a duplicate group should be the same!
