SoftChronizer is a very easy to use, fast and versatile double-file search program, that was designed to help you keeping your private or corporate book, music or picture collection in order, as well as for other use cases.

SoftChronizer can reliably search for any type of duplicate file in a single hard drive directory (with subdirectories), or simultaneously in different folders on different drives. The program either uses the ultra-precise "Byte-by-Byte" search, or a very fast "Fuzzy-Logic" search option to detect duplicate filenames. SoftChronizer displays MP3-ID3-Tags (displays the bit rate, i.e. a statement about the quality of the music, as well as the duration of a track in minutes and track's album-name of a song), as well as for images, their size in pixels and their color-depth! - So if you see several duplicate files, you quickly can decide which picture, or which MP3 file you want to keep, or not.

System Requirements:

Windows XP, Vista (x32/x64), 7 (x32/x64)


GaCaS Software



File Size:

2.86 MB



Comments on SoftChronizer

The Good
* Straightforward and easy to use.
* Users are allowed to search for specific file types, or search the whole computer.
* Has the option to use binary comparisons in addition to comparison by file name and size.
* "Fuzzy logic" feature allow for a bit of elbow room when searching for duplicate files.
* Provides handy "extra" information on MP3 and image files, such as bitrate and resolution (respectively).
* Fairly fast scans.

The Bad
* Has bugs; can't finish a full scan on my C:/ partition because of errors.
* Can only search one partition at a time.
* Criteria to compare files is limited to name, size, or "byte-by-byte" - lacks the ability to use other criteria such as data file created, date last modified, etc.
* Users can't go back to the search results after the results are displayed if they (accidentally or on purpose) click on a different file type search option.
* The interface could do with a makeover.

Free Alternatives
WinUtilities Pro (Duplicate File Finder module).

-- The program searched a drive with 192 GB of data in under 2 minutes; its speed is very impressive and its best feature.

-- Results are fair; some have been useful, many are not.

-- Big negative in that you cannot sort by the different options once the search has completed; ie: file name, file size, etc...

As noted, the interface is awkward and not sufficiently simple to use in searching through the search results to find real duplicates. I had about 2000 results, and it was just a matter of scrolling through them and trying to figure out which needed attention. Sorting by type would have helped this tremendously! As is, I don't think I'll continue to use this program.

Regardless, thanks for the giveaway!
