I expected the usual duplicate finder fare, but what I found is software that wanted me to go through and decide, duplicate file by duplicate file, which I wanted to keep. I admit that I didn't read the help file, because I used enough of these things that I figured I could navigate through the options relatively easily since I've used several other duplicate cleaners. Clonespy might be dynamite, but in my 15 minutes with the software I didn't find anything to indicate that. If you're not in the mood or don't have time for a learning curve, you probably want to look elsewhere.
I tried several clone file finders, most of them just crash when scanning a huge amount of files.
Some are not so reliable.
Clone Spy never let me down, and I use it often since many years. It is not the fastest program, but very reliable and it never crashed or hanged.
If you have a lot of files and a lot of dupes grab this one.
While I have gigs and gigs of freewarepayware mainly freeware, I have a bad habit of clustering the same thing over and over, perhaps in different folders, or zip with exe, whatever and I end up backing up dups of everything, therefore wasting space. This really put the kibosh on my behavior and was able to clean up all my duplicate setups, saving me gigs of space. Awesome!
