Duplicate files often made our hard disk full. SOT once discussed in article: “What are things made our disk full?” that one tips to ‘create a space’ in our hard disk capacity is by erasing duplicate files. SOT add one more application to remove duplicate files in your hard drive as alternative, which is Double Killer.
This application will search duplicate files by comparing combination of name, size, modification date, and content. You can exclude file or limit the search using certain attribute, like *.MP3, so that the application will avoid to search such type file. When scan procedure is finished, then all duplicate files found will be displayed on screen and you can manually or automatically remove those files. The list can be managed or placed into a text file which can be read if you want to do deletion later.
Interface Double Killer seemed a bit complicated, but all features existed are aimed to search duplicate files by applying various searching criteria.
By clicking on option tab, you can filter the search by deciding file criteria to be found. If you already decided in which folder or hard drive part to search duplicate files, then you just have to run this application or pressing “Run” button.
The result will be displayed in main panel. Here you can directly execute it by erasing the similar file or do further review and remove it later. Doublekiller also makes you possible to print file list which can be considered same to take further action later.
You can download DoubleKiller in:
DoubleKiller is a standalone or portable type application which doesn’t have to be installed. You just have to extract and run it directly. Quite practical, isn’t it?
Last but not least, as alternative, you can also use Anti-Twin Duplicate File Finder application which once also discussed by SOT too.
