Cisdem DuplicateFinder 3 Review

At any given time, your Mac is the home of several duplicate files. This is something natural and obvious. Most of these files are automatically created while some of them are created by the users unintentionally. It doesn’t matter how create these files, the question is how to get rid of them?

Getting rid of the duplicate files and folders is not easy especially if the files have different names. Imagine having a single image saved in different folders with different names. Finding these types of files is practically not possible unless you open each and every file on your device.

But, you cannot open every single file and even if you do, you won’t be able to read the content of each file.

It is complicated.

Cisdem has the perfect solution for you. The Cisdem DuplicateFinder 3 for Mac is the tool that has been developed to solve this very issue of every Mac user.

Reclaim Your Disk Space Using Fast Duplicate File Finder - Exclusive $400 Worth License Giveaway

Audio DedupeNowadays a terabyte of storage is something common and usually we do not worry about free space. Unfortunately the size of the files has grown too and by downloading, copying, saving multiple versions of files we soon end up with a full disk drive again.

Keeping an organized file system is not always easy in the busy world today. Manual disk cleaning is a heavy task to be carried out too. Fortunately Fast Duplicate File Finder by MindGems Inc. can solve this problem for free.

Follow this easy step-by-step guide with me in order to clean duplicate files.

Once you add the folders to be scanned there are some handy options that you can tweak. In the folders panel you can exclude some folders from the auto-check feature. This is handy if you would like to preserve the files in some "'source"' folder(s). You can also "Disable Self-Scan" for certain folders which means that files inside will not be compared against each other. This is a neat feature if you want to compare folder A against folder B.

Next step is choosing the scan method. There are three scan methods in the application - "100% Equal Files", "Similar File Names" and "Similar Files". The first and second modes are the fastest. I recommend you to use the "100% Equal Files" mode first. In the second and third modes you can specify a similarity percentage that will be used for the comparison.

Once you are done with the above hit the "Star Scan" button to begin the search for duplicates. The time necessary to complete the task depends on the size and speed of your drives.
