Hi, I have run Duplicate Sweeper through my external hard drive, but it had not detected all my duplicate photos I have 17, 000 plus photos that have been restored from a faulty hard drive! They have been repeated over and over again! But my sweeper has only removed a quarter of them!

@Jacqueline Ann Gomez Removed files are sent to your recycle bin. You can restore files you want back from there. Please note that emptying or deleting the files from your recycle bin will permanently delete the files.

DOES IT ONLY SWEEP FOLDERS.
CAN'T IT SEARCH A SIMPLE LIST OF TEXT FOR DUPLICATES.
IF IT CAN'T I DON'T WANT IT.

@paul chicarell Duplicate Sweeper scans for duplicate files within the folders specified. It searches for duplicate files rather than duplicate content within files.
