Check for duplicate files using the integrated duplicate file search
If a system is used by multiple or constantly changing users, you'll find that files and sometimes even entire file trees have been duplicated over the years. They use up disk space, so removing duplicates (a process called Deduplication) is a task that should be performed at regular intervals. But how do you find duplicate files?
The TreeSize duplicate file search enables you to look specifically for redundant files on your hard drives, folders, or network shares. It employs MD5 or SHA256 checksums to compare files and find duplicate content.
In addition, TreeSize enables you to easily deduplicate files (i.e. deletete duplicates or replace them).
You can run duplicate searches automatically with the comfortable TreeSize task planner in the Professional Edition.
You may also compare files by their size, date, and/or name. This is faster but less accurate, since it does not take a file's content into account.
Unlike other programs, TreeSize will count hardlinks only once and not report them as duplicates.
You want to perform duplicate searches for single user accounts? Try SpaceObServer, the database-based disk space manager.
