@10. re your query how did it get popular; truthfully, when it was maintained and updated by its original author "Peter Norton" it was truly an amazing piece of software! But once bought by Symantec it steadily went downhill. I have 33 years experience in IT and I have seen a lot of good software go down the tubes :-( This is only my (yes, very experienced) opinion, use it only at your own risk and risky it will be.

Cheers and good luck.

Thanks to Enplase Research + GOTD.

Such software is like a knife.

You can use a knife in cooking to prepare meals.
Or you can use a knife to stab someone.

You are supposed to know how to use your instruments properly.

There are many good reasons why users want to have duplicate files in various different places of their PC's hard disk.

So it is silly to mindlessly remove all duplicate files.

This is the message that comes up after install:

Maybe you know that the software you download and install during the Giveaway period comes with the following important limitations:

Strictly personal usage

But with today's deal, you can get full (not limited) version of
Clone Terminator for just $29 $14.50!

Isn't this a full version without technical support and future upgrades?

This is very confusing and misleading!!!

Hmm... I'm not understanding what the point of those BASS and other audio libraries installed with the program is. Does the program actually decompress audio and compare them sample by sample?

Interesting find in the about box: "Special thanks to Jason Howard (aka BuBBy)". Is that our BuBBy?

To developers: Most of the time there's no good reason to use a custom skin. It just adds heft and extra processing. For this specific program, Windows 6+ includes a fine looking wizard template that will also work for Windows versions below.

Hi, I should be the last person giving advice on this and similar Software..
I admit being beyond any help, or HOPE:)) Such is the scale of my daily (almost) "sins" of looking/searching for something on my big drives only to immediately drag it out of there, COPY(!) to my so called "handy" Folder on C.. - to then regularly (big deal, lol) copy these handy Folders back to big Drives with different dates, that's all.. - that it would take ONLY some genius and very, very intuitive Software to realize what's what..

Differently - I wouldn't trust them now, too late you see, I wouldn't even trust my eyes that yes, this IS definitely a Duplicate of text, or picture, and NOT slightly altered (therefore better and more important:) 2, 3, 10.. Files of the same I decided to keep long ago.
I won't even go to Corel.., various Projects "in progress" or finished, nor to it's "self preserving" Files and Folders..

So my advice would be this: Unless You decided long time ago (or perhaps today) to start using Duplicates Cleaning Software on REGULAR basis - Stick to it!
Today indeed could be the beginning of much easier and clutter-free life?:))
There is tones of good technical advice on Today's Offer page!

"Compare Folders"
http://winmerge.org/ will compare files in folders. (How else can anything "compare" folders?)
It does a lot more, so newbies will need to learn how to use it.
And WinMerge is open source.

RE: #30

I've worked with computers since the IBM 1512 and have also worked at IBM (where a program was named after me). In my opinion, Norton is the very best security program for the general public and 99% of other users. Norton's support is excellent, I've never encountered any issues of false alarms, and, more important, none of the computers on which I have installed it (since 2004 or so) have become infected in any way.

I won't be trying this.

I can't recall which dupe finders I tried, but settled on doublekiller free version.
Warnings:
DK deletes permanently, not to recycle bin.
The handy "check the first dupes (in sets of dupes)", isn't so handy because sometimes the folder of the first flipflops to being the second (I wonder what criteria DK uses to display as "first" in list...)

Tips, assuming your primary purpose is to free disk space:
Check for files large than [choose size]. Then click Size column to compare the largest dupes.

If processing large number of files, check all criteria: Date, Size, Name, CRC. Next, you can uncheck date Criteria (since copied or unzipped files may time-shift). Finally, reprocess with Name criteria unchecked.
If DK shows many files in parallel folders, I prefer to open side-by-side in xplorer2lite, and manually compare & delete using "sync" features. Then return to DK and run again.

Startup DK from a shortcut with the Maximized" property.

A very convenient dream feature would be comparing files to files inside archive (zip, 7z, rar, etc) files.

There are many good find-duplicates software but most of them don't find duplicate songs. As mp3 becoming very popular, we just put them in hard disk. Subsequently, they pile up and many and are two versions or the same. Any suggestion for good mp3 or music file duplicate finder. I got a very good one from GAOTD which is duplicate detector but doesn't find correct duplicate of music files.

A far as dupe finding programs, the interface is nice (unlike clonespy which looks from the previous century). The program is easy to use, scanning speed is average and has a built in image comparison/preview which is essential in my view.

However after uninstalling the previous version of this program problems ensued.Uninstalled fine, registry clean and reboot. Installation did not require registration as it took the previous version's(so not a clean uninstall). Error message 1156,shellexecuteEx failed. When running the program, the [close] window would not close or allow to be moved (when scanning window open) which made it impossible to see the desktop without actually closing the program.

It would be nice to see a summary window which is common in most other dupe programs plus file creation date...but my real wish...previews of other file formats other than just images. Now THAT would make it worth the $29. It needs something to set itself apart from the freebies other than ease of use and a nice interface.

XP does NOT have DWMAPI.DLL by default.
Clone Terminator.exe DOES have a dependency to DWMAPI.DLL

Short answer, an XP system, without DWMAPI.DLL, cannot run Clone Terminator.

Visiting some threads, there was some talk of IE, but I have IE8 installed, & still no DWMAPI.DLL.

I did manually copy a version of DWMAPI.DLL from Win7, but that did not work, prompting an "invalid entry point" error.

Even found this, http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/forums/topic/9051

Clone Terminator and XP dwmapi.dll

So either the program author doesn't know how to fix or doesn't care to try to address the issue.

There seem to be some confusion as to how a program checks for duplicates; when two files of the same length are compared it is done by means of a hash.
The two following examples will possibly help to explain this, the first file contains the following,
“THIS IS A TRIAL PROGRAM”
the second
“THIS IS A TrIAL PROGRAM”.
The hash of the first file is

97ed8e24b02fe8d733f800da61b79ef0

and the hash of the second file is

bd094cf77cc55f21593d2e782b43ac21

As can be seen, even though the only difference is in the case of a single letter they will not be classed as duplicates because the hashes are so different.
One other point that arises, that is the types of files can be safely deleted. Making sure that file extensions are visible in Explorer type programs is one of the best ways of learning the difference between the files you make and system files.

Susan 10#
The reason Norton's programs became so popular was because of the original Peter Norton’s programs such as Norton Utilities. He was an absolutely superb programmer who opened up the guts of DOS and make it understandable. A similar exceptional program was called Xtree (for those interested replicated as Ztree for Windows) unfortunately both were absorbed by Symantec and became a shadow of their former glorious selves

I need a dup finder/remover that has the capability and also has options to allow the user to delete its findings in batches instead of individually deleting files...this process could be soo time consuming...could be annoying too. This type of action should be doable once the user has established that there are no system files or programs included in the list of dup findings. Is there such an software available...any suggestions...can any savvy person recommend something worthwhile...? Please help. Thank you

LONG time GAOTD user and not frequent poster.
Must add that over the decades I have tried every dup finder that existed. Am ALWAYS looking for a better way. Years ago I found (and later purchased spaceman from http://www.extrabit.com/
I have NEVER found a better dup finder. It was worth every penny.
I have had a few requirements that have not been address yet. Still the best (IMHO) available. I LOVE to pay for products that really work so the company stays in business and enhances over time. But I also love GAOTD for introducing me to new stuff...

XP SP3
v3.7

Install itself looks clean, creating one directory, 9 MB, 12 files.

Any changelog from earlier versions?

I've looked at this time & time again (as its been offered many times), & haven't liked it before & still don't like it.

There are many better, more feature filled programs out there - either free or pay.

In XP, I receive, "This application has failed to start because DWMAPI.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." Or not ;-).

The last GAOTD version, while also giving the same error message, did work on Win 7 for me.

Since I can't actually run this version now, I just repost some of my earlier ramblings ...


it uses a "prompter thingy" (menu driven, IOW).
no idea what parameters it is using?
a quick run through of a directory & it looks like it will take forever.
[maybe it didn't take sooo long.]

but really poor interface - in all manners so FORGET ABOUT IT!

@16 Try a comparator. E.G. Beyond Compare (I can't find freeware comparators).

I tried this GAOTD but I did not like it. Like you have to restart the program after a scan: you can't add a new folder. Like you can't see results next to each other. Like you have to delete file by file.

I use the very old Unique Filer (nagware or buggy beta). Very good for pictures, and also works for other file types.

Having extensively searched Internet for a really flexible, customizabe, safe, claer and intiutive software pieces to identify duplicate files (whether graphics, text ones etc.) and let me make a reasonable decision about deleting/keeping then, I came across a small site which offers a really good programme FOR FREE for private use:

http://www.anti-twin.com/

The site is clear-cut, free of useless gadgets and provides all information you may need to evaluate its capabilities as compared to your needs. For instance, if I am not wrong, it’s the only programme that allows to find duplicates of a single file you wish to compare to your resources. The author is still developing the sofware and very kindly responds to mails and queries. For me this piece of software shows perfectly the potentials of an invididuyl competent programmer as opposed to the impotency of IT moguls whose success seems to originate from making fool of people with their PR rather than from providing users with really valuable products.

My advice is to check and try many sofware pieces before you select the one you will be actually using.
Cheers,
Marek

If you want to really be safe in this sort of thing then it is worth purchasing Dupehunter, an industrial strength piece of software that does a proper job. I don't know anything about the offer today but from reading the comments of one person who says the software does not work properly and that it does not show what is happening (duplicates shown in all locations, before deletion) I would be very cautious about using today's giveaway.

WARNING: Please read before using "duplicate file" removal utilities. I personally advise novice computer users to stay away from these types of utilities. As always, use these utilities at your own risk.

All duplicate files found during a "scan" by these types of utilities are NOT necessarily good candidates for removal! Be sure to carefully scrutinize each set of duplicate files before making the decision to delete these file. I always recommend making a "system restore" point (at minimum) before using these utilities. If you remove a critical file (after being prompted to do so by these types of utilities), it is possible that your computer will no longer boot (i.e., start) once your computer has been "cleaned." If your computer "boots" properly, it is also possible one or more of your applications may no longer start, or the application may become unstable and close as a result of removing the wrong file(s). Your computer's operating system may become unstable following the use of these types of utilities, resulting in system "hangs" or the dreaded "blue screen of death (BSOD). Remember: Data loss is a very real possibility!

In closing, I have to say this is a very dangerous utility if not used properly. Novice computer users should AVOID using these types of utilities altogether.

REMEMBER: If you delete the wrong file (or set of files), you WILL spend the rest of the day restoring your computer system!

Until next time...

NR 9 and 10. Symantec is no more dangerious then the file it stops. I've used Nortons since it was a standalone. If you think of it as a extended warranty, it might cost you up front but once you use it, it's paid for itself and over the years, it's saved me many times. Thats why I've never had to visit someone with 25+ years of IT. If you guys have had issues with it, maybe it's a layer 8 issue?

Tested on XP SP3

Does okay for a small number of files. annoyance with .sfk .sfl .avd (my sony and other media support files for display on time-lines) files I just deleted them all to clean the mess, they regenerate when reloaded. I cleaned out 6 years of TV show media file gunk in about an hour. I didn't test the filters so maybe that was the problem, maybe I should have written some rules for .veg .sfk and others.. Or maybe that the layout doesn't open up both the filters and the directory dialog at the same time which made me have appathy here?

Does okay on small photo collection, especially if you were disciplined when creating directories and naming files, and the only noise was when you were tweaking on the files.

Does okay on a single directory acting as tree root, although I can see problems when considering a more complex system with multiple drives and junctions.

Speed of processing seemed decent (considering the tree root I pointed this sucker at) here on my intel quad 2 core Q6600.

Other than the big media files I had, a lot of the dupes were backups, and long lists get tiresome to click after an hour, perhaps there should be hotkeys and tag checkboxes? I dunno.

Seems overpriced in that light.

@13
In my experience, this program will find ANYTHING.
I would, however, recommend that you only use this (or any other "duplicate finder") only to delete YOUR files, and not any "computer files".

If you want to remove program files, use an uninstaller. (Revo is quite nice. And free)

If you want tom remove folders... then you have a lot of work to do, because so far, I have never seen a "duplicate finder" that can handle folders, only files. (And as I said, if someone could make a solution that would let me see if all files in a folder were duplicates, and then let me delete the whole folder at once (AND update the "duplicate finder", removing the files I had just deleted), I would buy that program.

If you want to remove FILES of any type, this program should do it. But like I said, I would only use it to remove the files I had produced, not the ones my computer had produced on its own. (Music, images, texts, spreadsheets...)

(I just did a little test, three text documents. One original, one copy and one "extra" where I just removed an ":" from the original. The program had NO problem finding that the original and the copy were duplicates, but the document missing the ":" was identified as "not a clone".)

I'm with #5 - One paragraph - four sentences total (three of which are self-promoting "we're great") - to entice the reader to buy & download their program just does not cut it. No feature list, not even a screen shot. If that is all their program is worth then it probably is not worth downloading.

Compare their site to CloneSpy's [http://www.clonespy.com/?Features]. CloneSpy is one fourth the size, does much more and permits total user control and multiple means for processing duplicates. And it is freeware!

@8
"Can the algorithm “see” when it compares a 32-bit and 64-bit EXE file like ZPS.exe"

I would never use a program to remove exe-files anyway. Clone Terminator MAY give the correct answer (I actually think it does), but the first message you get when you try to scan a folder like that is "this folder has system or program files, are you sure you want to continue". Most sensible users would press "no" unless they really knew what they were doing.

Clone Terminator sound scary for the name of a program that should do nice things on the PC ! I don´t trust the innovative algorithms scanning, because there is still a lot of things that can go wrong.

As said, this program is too expensive.

Personally, when removing duplicates I like to have a real sense of control of the types and size etc of the files I wish to remove.
Recently I found a free program which suits me very well, it is available at the following link:-

Today's program is probably more suitable for the less experienced computer user and certainly worth a try.

Their website doesn´t inspire me to download.

My favorite is CloneSpy portable 2.62 (free, 1.3 MB) and former versions, I've been using for years and very often. All in English even Homepage (with lots of informations), despite of being from German author(s)! Lots of features.
You can choose between standard or portable installation.

For pictures: Dup Detector 3.302 (free!) which can even find similar pictures.

Install on win7 32 bit with no problems, scanned nearly 40,000 files in around 10 mins.
Easy to use, just follow step by step instructions.
Groups files by size, not file name. When group clicked on files are visible, you can than choose to delete or not.
You can choose to delete to recycle bin or straight delete, default is to recycle bin.
Aso has an internal player for music, well for the mp3s, opened external player for videos.

Firstly, when scanning, you should be able to minimise it and control the scan priority (low,medium,high). Secondly you should be given the option to compress files instead of deleting them. Thirdly it is pointless just showing cloned 1mb files. if there are two folders the same, with the same content, the program show the folder not just the files inside. Also it should show folders with a slight difference e.g. the same two folders containing the same 99 files, however one has an extra one so the program would have missed it.
