I do not feel the need to install this as I find WinExt Pro given as a GAOTD a few weeks ago still very useful and which works flawlessly in managing my files and folders.

Downloaded twice, "Setup files are corrupted". W1064bit

bratsch, IMPORTANT: Please note that due to the software wrapper, developed by GOTD Team, that limits software ativation to 24 hours only, your installation might be blocked by your antivirus (AVG, Avast or Kaspersky)!

In order to install the program, you'll have to temporally disable your antivirus.

If you have Kaspersky antivirus, please disable it and restart the computer.
Please make sure it won't start automatically with the computer.
Now please download the program archive once again and try to install it.

Be sure, all installers are always tested on virustotal.com and are virus free.

We apologize for inconvenience!

This program only seems to a scan for do complete drives. I can't find a way for it to compare files in two folders only. You can add folders to be included but it still compares all files on selected hard drives.
There is no way to go back to change my choices when I want to do another scan using different hard drives.

I like the choices of having a more detailed search. It also allows you to check the file before you decide to delete it. Listing the files by size is also useful as I'd want to work on the biggest file sizes first.

It would be nice if this program the total amount of space you could save when you select what you want to delete.

downloaded and hit the setup.exe as specified. Giveawayofthedayinstaller runs and... NOTHING. It says it's complete and lets me click the close tab. But there is NO program installed on my computer ANYWHERE.

Windows 10 and no sign of the program from the installer.

I had a similar problem until I turned Avast antivirus off temporarily.
I find that happens fairly often.

Needs a way to preview media files before deletion.

Geesh, it's a duplicate finder, not a file previewer.

It's not trying to help you identify unidentified files.

It's trying to help you reduce duplicates that take up space, duplicate and perhaps unnecessary files that are preoccupying backups and other scans like routine anti malware scans and defraggers and the like, occupying space without providing a unique benefit because, hey, there's another copy already on the hard drive somewhere..

You'll always have at least one copy left if you only use Wide Duplicate Finder to remove duplicates of ANY file type.

I don't think people understand the purpose of some tools.

Peter Blaise, There are many dupe finders available which DO not only ALLOW previewing, but show a thumbnail of each file along with the file's location on your drive. Thanks anyway, but I'll use one of those instead.

Go right ahead.

I have used your service for years and have often ended up buying some programs. Recently the download service does not work. It is crap. I used to get a zip file and installed the program. Now I cannot get a direct download and the other push service to my email does not work either. Nothing has changed on my system so I don't know what you did on your end, but it does not work.
I guess this avid user of your service will become history if you do not get your service back to what it was.

Not a bad program and installed quickly. Ran it on my mp3 and it was super fast. But just for grins I tried another duplicate file finder I use Auslogics Duplicate File Finder which is freeware. DFF was almost as fast, but was a lot more useful ie it showed the names of the songs and it found many more dupes vs Wise. Wise found 230 dupes vs DFF found 374!

I was unaware of the dupefinder in Ccleaner . . . but it has a number of secondary tools that are built-in.
I've mainly relied upon the duplicates finder in Win Utilities Pro (a perennial giveaway), although I think
it just reports, and does not delete extra files.

I appreciate Giveaway of the Day's offers, but almost more useful are the comments about problems and free alternatives. Unfortunately the comments about problems downloading, installing and activating are mostly useless, but some are helpful. It saves me a lot of time and headaches so I won't go into the swamp where others have credible problems.
I just had occasion to search for duplicates, both amongst ordinary files and then in about 3000 pictures. I found that the free version of Glary Utilities (of which the Pro version is often given away here) was excellent for ordinary files. For pictures check out the free DupDetector, by Prismatic, now safely available from keronsoft. This giveaway had better have features exceeding those.

The comments on download struggles are intended for the web site moderators, and to seek help from others who may have tips or tricks to overcome download issues.

Thanks for the insight on alternatives to today's GOTD.

It found Duplicates, I selected "Keep One" then clicked on "Delete Selected", a box appeared in the centre of the screen saying, "Waiting" and 5 hours later nothing's happened! Duly uninstalled.

My usual "tired" question: Is this a 3-month, 6-month, 1-year or lifetime license? Any tech support? As noted below, if you update, you're back to the "stripped down" version, so that's covered (by a GAOD user-not Wise). I wish GAOD would require the length of use be noted in the vendor's description, but, alas, not to happen.

"Giveaway" is one word, not two words, so the abbreviation of Giveaway Of The Day is GOTD, not GAOD.

After unzipping, I tried to install the software( Setup.exe). I got message "successfully activated". But the software installation did not happen????.
Same thing happened in the past 2 or 3 times. What could have gone wrong?
I am unable to troubleshoot.

[ Alexa ],

A few background points regarding the "... the software wrapper, developed by GOTD Team ..." as you say:

1 - The GOTD wrapper was not developed BY GOTD, it is commercially available ( in customer-customized formats ) from a third party.

2 - The GOTD wrapper does not limit installation to only one day, but instead:

( a ) expands the embedded installation into an encoded virtual machine that is inaccessible to the operating system, thereby preventing reverse engineering of the contents, and

( b ) phoning home to get permission, which the GOTD mother-ship usually limits to one day, but the time limit is in GOTD's answer, not the wrapper itself.

3 - Anti virus programs seem to balk at the GOTD wrapper temporarily constructing an encoded virtual machine outside the anti virus's ability to watch, and so, anti virus programs tend to prevent the GOTD wrapper from functioning, that is why GOTD suggests turning off our anti virus program when installing from the GOTD wrapper ... then turning our anti virus program back on, and perhaps do a scan immediately so we feel comfortable that we have not been compromised.

4 - Not all GOTD offers use the wrapper, so non-wrapper GOTD installations can usually be accomplished with full participation of an anti virus program watching.

5 - Many of us immediately upload the GOTD offer to free [ VirusTotal. com ] and then report back here if there is a report of malware inside it.

6 - Not all programs reported by anti virus or anti malware programs are actually dangerous or fraudulent, some are "PUP"s, "POTENTIALLY Unwanted Programs", such as any utility that

( a ) is not necessary to operate the computer, and

( b ) may contain advertisement or prompts to install other programs ( such as free IObit Uninstaller offering to also install free IObit Advanced System Care, for example ), and or

( c ) personal conflict between vendors ( such as Malwarebytes considering ALL IObit and Auslogics software "POTENTIALLY" unwanted, geesh! ),

... also, some reported programs are too new to be recognized, or have powers usually considered worth warning about, such as partition programs that can erase a hard drive often get reported, even though there is nothing misleading, covert, or fraudulent about them -- it's like reporting that a chef in your kitchen has sharp knives, oh my!
__________

This is just a reference collection of observations I have made about my GOTD experiences over the years.

I hope it helps those who wonder what is going on with GOTD installations, and helps raise everyone's trust that nothing nefarious is happening at GOTD regarding sneaking under an anti virus programs radar, so to speak.

Easy install windows 10 x64. Tried it and it works fine. I liked the "keep one" option it saves a lot of manual box ticking. Once again there is no safety feature I can see that prevents one from deleting duplicates that are required (like when you need the same file in two different locations to keep certain software happy) so care is required to exclude those folders / files. All that said I am still hooked on clonespy because of its options and it is always free.

This is poor compared to such freeware as VisiPics and Duplicate & Same Files Searcher.
Wise have a 'free download' which is read only!

I think you will find that the Giveaway copy is the Pro version. You have to buy the 1.2.9 Pro version. But having said that I could find no comparison on Wise website of the difference between standard and Pro.

Reply   |   Comment by Mr Pasit  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

Mr Pasit, the Pro version unlocks the "Keep One" feature, which basically selects duplicates automatically and leaves one unselected, so you can literally keep one, as the option says.
