This is a well-designed, nice looking and functional software product. Installs easily (if you bother to read the Readme file, which many seem unaware of doing), with simple and immediate registration.

I did a test run on a small SSD drive (250 GB capacity, roughly half full) and was surprised that it took nearly two minutes to produce the final report, even on my quite fast AMD Ryzen system, so I'd certainly not want to select the option to run it again all drives which amount to about 9 TB all together!

Agree with the suggestion that the size filter needs adjusting to be more realistic, because these days "Gigantic" would not be as small as 128M+ when a single movie can easily be (depending on format, etc) anything from 1 or 2 GB right up to 10 or 20 GB. I would recommend adding "Immense" and "Galactic" filters in the multi-gigabyte range.

My test produced report statistics section as follows
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCANNED: 114,26 GB, 52,800 files, 1,492 folders
FOUND: 1.99 GB, 21,7566 duplicate files, 4,257 groups
SPENT: 1,9 minutes
FILTERED: 1.99 GB, 21,7566 duplicate files, 4,257 groups
CHECKED: 1.37 GB, 17,408 files
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Admittedly without reading any help documentation (which in the very best software should be the last resort), it was not apparent to me what the total possible disk space savings would be. Is it the 1.99 GB in the FOUND/FILTERED report rows, or is it the 1.37 GB in the CHECKED report row? I suspect the latter, but perhaps this could be made more obvious (such as by adding the words "Potential savings" or similar to the CHECKED row?

Tony Austin, did you also notice it said it found 21,7566 duplicate files. There's an extra number after the comma. That can't be right.

Nunya, I could not copy-and-paste the results (forget the reason, I think it was a non-text graphic report). So the extra "6" would have been a typo I'd say, sorry for that.

Come on guys... I read your comments to find out your opinion of the software. I do NOT read your comments to keep seeing ACTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS repeated Over and Over.

Get a GRIP people and simply read the instructions. Stop wasting everybody's time asking the SAME question; "How do I ACTIVATE... yada, yada?".

PM somebody already.

Jazz, thanks for the comment and to all those who would rather complain about downloading rather than the software!!

Jazz, Some people indeed cannot read the instructions, a few, but many cannot find them, or miss something, or cannot understand them. Some are written in Pidgin English. With a limited time offer it is urgent to solve activation problems — in some cases the developer has replied to the comments and apologised for an error, and this comments page helps both vendor and customer in such cases. How much of your time do they really waste?

Jazz, I know what you mean. I was hoping for some comments about this software so I can decide if I need it or not. I already have a duplicate file finder so I was hoping to see what else it does. So many times the description is too vague.

Hello
Can anybody help me, I try since a long time, to install giveawayoftheday tools with GCD images. I have no idea, how I can do this and I tried it in many different manner. No chance! The manuel in the readme file didn't help me too.
Can anybody give me instructions which I understand also :) Sorry if I'm the only one who is to silly, but...
Thanks in advance for our help.
kind regards
Silvio

Silvio, I would download and install 7-ZIP file manager and make it default for all zipped files and then drag and drop the compressed files in it (like the giveaway software) and then run the setup or install the unzipped files.

Reply   |   Comment by certa  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Silvio, The advice about using 7-zip is a good one and most efficient if you are doing things right. The beauty of 7-zip is the feature that allows you to extract (unzip) to a chosen location. GAOTD downloads are zipped and will download to a folder that you choose, -- if like me, to my browser Downloads folder.

The important thing here is to correctly open GAOTD apps, they must be unzipped into the same folder as the downloaded zip file. Rather than extract into my browser Downloads folder, I make a folder for that app under a GAOTD Downloads folder in my documents directory. Then I drag the zipped GAOTD app into that folder, right click it, and using 7-zip choose "extract here". Now, since it is all in one folder you can use readme, and run setup. (you could have the GAOTD zip downloaded to a created folder for that app, but then you would have to be changing browser download locations everytime you DL any file.) it is easiest to drag/drop.

Any problems from there on will most likely be due to your antivirus app which may need to be disabled for long enough for installation, then reactivated. GAOTD downloads are safe so doing that is ok as long as you re-enble that AV after installation. (from decades of experience). On rare occasion you may also need to right-clck on the setup file to unblock it under "properties" requiring just an obvious click.

Using 7-zip gives you that "extract here " feature that simplifies the whole process for me, and I have not had a problem installing GAOTD zips for decades.

Hadrianus, If his OS is not win 10, there is no auto unzip. I use 7-ZIP, many unsigned or not registered zipped files are rejected by win 10 and you can not tell win 10 where and how to unzipped them.

Reply   |   Comment by Bem  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+11)

Hadrianus, It seams you do not understand how win 10 works, if the zipped file (software) is not digitally signed or it is in different zip format other than normal compression or there is no normal ZIP header, win 10 will reject it or do nothing to the software or worn you of a dangerous software is being installed.

Silvio, Some people make things far too complicated.
1. Set a download file for all your downloads but do not keep them there, it is temporary. [Mine is in drive D but it need not be.]
2. Suppose you download a programme called CATTS. (I hope there is no real one with that name.) Download catts.zip into your download directory. (The name may be more complicated but makes no difference, it is a ZIP.)
3.Then create a directory called CATTS, [mine is in drive C but it need not be] and move your zip file into it, emptying your download directory.
4. In the new directory, unzip the downloaded file, then press the file called setup.exe or instal(l).exe and choose to instal the new programme into that same directory (using the CHANGE button), not into the one they recommend.
For either downloading or installing you may have to disable the antivirus for 10 minutes, but not always.

This way all is kept clean and tidy and programmes are not mixed up.
FOOTNOTE On a very rare occasion, but not from GAOTD, instead of a zip file you get an .ISO one.
In that case, I cannot help you, maybe someone else can (and help me at the same time).

I ran the install under Win7. I read the readme and copied the activation code. But where is the WinExt program to run? I don't see any WinExt program anywhere. It's not on my desktop or program files. I also opened programs and features from control panel and don't see it there. Did it not install successfully? Why didn't I see any messages saying it either did or didn't install successfully?

Thanks a lot for this program. It makes it easier to find duplicated files clogging up my D:/ drive where I download and install all files to free up my C:/ drive. Already found 25GB worth of extra space. A useful addition to have at hand.

I downloaded the archive and successfully extracted the files. However, it installed software informer rather than WinExt Pro. It definitely did not install this anywhere on my system.

Frank Syn Artrah, maybe you clicked on the wrong button.

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

Frank Syn Artrah, Im in the same situation. Unzip the package you've downloaded and install the software by running Setup.exe but on my setup screen it only showed the Software Informer and the close buttton. I read the README.

Reply   |   Comment by Smegal  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Frank Syn Artrah, at the top of this page you will see a countdown timer. Just below that timer is a button to download Software Informer. Don't click on that button. The button you want to use is just to the right of the timer. It says, "Download Now WinExt Pro 8.0". Hope this is helpful.

Reply   |   Comment by Nunya  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

TK, Frank didn't go on a button-clicking spree, nor did he misread or fail to read the Readme file. He said that when he ran the setup file, it installed Software Informer, instead of WinExt. That was the clue needed, to figure out what he did. He simply downloaded the wrong software. He clicked on the button below the countdown timer, instead of the button to the right of the countdown time and downloaded Software Informer and not WinExt. I hope that was helpful.

Reply   |   Comment by Nunya  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Hadrianus, actually, what TK said wasn't very well-spoken, at all. It was more from out in left field. Please read my reply to TK to understand what I mean.

This part of your reply, "Everything downloaded from the Internet is stored in the F: \ (14.6 GB) DownloadMap partition," may certainly be true for you, because this is where you have your system configured to save your downloaded files. However, for the vast majority of Windows users, maybe 99% of them, they won't have any idea what that means.

The reason for that is because, by default, Windows automatically downloads files to the C:\ drive and for the last several years, specifically to the Downloads folder, unless you tell it otherwise.

Apparently, this is the way you, or someone, has configured your system: to download files to your F:\ drive/partition. So, saying that everything from the Internet goes to the F:\ drive, may, in fact, only be true for you and your specific system configuration.

I hope this was helpful.

TK, OK and you're upset with me why, exactly? I would certainly have NO way of knowing that. I can only reply to what I can see on the screen. Maybe you need to direct your frustration toward the moderators. I hope this is helpful. Good luck.

I can't find where to register it. Help, please?

Reply   |   Comment by Tad  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-11)

Tad, the readme file clearly tells you how to register. In case you missed it, which you obviously did .... Run the program, press Upgrade to Pro at the window top => Input key and
use the provided key and ANY name twice to register the program .... Couldn't be simpler.

Tad, Also there is extra, another way via Settings, Duplicates:
