BoostSpeed Duplicate File Finder – Eliminate Unnecessary Copies Efficiently

These days, we rarely find people who do not use a computer. Even those who were born decades before the age of gadgets are making an effort to learn about new technologies. No matter what field you are in, you will find a valuable use for computers. However, with the benefits of PCs also come a host of issues, among which are duplicate files. These files consume a lot of space on the hard drive, eventually slowing down the device. Aside from that, having so many duplicate files can confuse the user or even wreak havoc in the system.

You may have the habit of collecting large volumes of multimedia files like photos, movies, and music. Perhaps, you tend to download items without considering your disk space. Eventually, multiple copies of files will clutter your system, making it difficult for you to identify appropriate data. Of course, you can go on a quest to organize these files. More often, you will find yourself deleting critical files from your system.

It is also worth noting that duplicate files end up getting scattered on different drives on the device. So, you may have trouble identifying them. Since we live in an era of fast-changing technology, there are products available that allow us to save millions of files on our computers. Nonetheless, duplicate files limit the storage capacity of hard drives.

How to delete duplicate files?

To resolve the issue, we recommend that you use BoostSpeed’s Duplicate File Finder feature. This tool efficiently identifies copies of existing files while providing you with the flexibility of selecting which items to remove.

What’s more, Duplicate File Finder’s fringe benefit is increasing the performance of your computer.

What Are the Functions and Benefits of BoostSpeed’s Duplicate File Finder?

Speed Up Your PC’s Performance – This feature from BoostSpeed allows you to get rid of duplicate files, consequently improving the performance of your computer. Duplicate File Finder can detect and remove existing copies of files on your device. So, the amount of time that it usually takes for your system to find the files it needs to run certain operations will decrease. For instance, scanning processes carried out by your anti-virus will run faster. Moreover, you can also reduce the time required to defragment your hard disk.

  • Efficient Search Engine – One of the best qualities of Duplicate File Finder is its ability to search for items both by content and name. So, it can find identical files with the same content yet having different names.
  • Organize Your Media Files – Cluttered and scattered media files are among the primary sources of duplicates. If left unattended, they will eventually cause issues on your device. Since the task is to find and delete unneeded copies of files, it can be even more challenging when you’re dealing with volumes and volumes of data. When you use Duplicate File Finder, you can sort out this issue easily. This tool will help you organize your existing files and increase your hard disk space. Search duplicated pictures, search mp3 duplicates, and get rid of useless files.
  • Reclaim Gigabytes of Data Storage – Duplicate File Finder can detect and delete unneeded copies of files in the shortest amount of time. It can even scan USB thumb drives and other types of portable storage media. There are many good reasons why many consumers prefer using BoostSpeed, and Duplicate File Finder is one of them.
  • Flexible Cleaning Module – It only takes a few minutes for Duplicate File Finder in Auslogics BoostSpeed to detect unneeded copies of your files. Once the process is complete, you will see a comprehensive report of the files you can delete. You can either delete them manually or automatically based on your chosen criteria. For example, to find duplicated pictures doesn’t mean to delete them immediately: maybe you still need them.

Organize Your Files Efficiently Using BoostSpeed’s Duplicate File Finder

When the average user goes on a data cleaning spree, they rarely think about duplicate files. What you do not know is that there are various ways that duplicate files are created. They can be generated and stored on your device even without your knowledge. Just take a look at your music collection, for example. You may have the same songs stored in different playlists or folders. Perhaps, you tried to sort your photos and move them to a new location. Instead, you ended up forgetting to delete the source copies of the media files.

You can try to sift through the folders on your PC. Of course, you can also use the Windows search function to find files with similar names. However, doing so is quite tedious and time-consuming. Thankfully, there is an easier way to do the job: you can use BoostSpeed’s Duplicate File Finder to get rid of those unneeded copies.

How to Use Duplicate File Finder

  1. You can access the tool by clicking the All Tools tab on Auslogics BoostSpeed.
  2. Under Disk Tools, you will find Duplicate File Finder.
  3. You should see the tool opening in a new tab.
  4. Create search criteria by clicking through the steps, using the Next button.
  5. If you are not ready to sort through the system file duplicates, you can opt to deal with familiar file types like audio, images, and video.
  6. While you’re going through the steps, you may wind up on a page that allows you to opt for ‘Ignore File Names’ and ‘Ignore File Dates’. We suggest that you select both. This will be useful in certain situations. For example, if you have renamed a file while saving a copy, Duplicate File Finder will ignore the different name and still identify the file as a duplicate.
  7. Once you’re done with setting up the search criteria, you can click Search. Keep in mind that it usually takes the program a few minutes to complete the search.
  8. Now, you should go through the list of duplicate files. You have three options for selecting the copies to remove. The first method is to manually select the boxes beside them. On the other hand, you can choose the duplicates according to different criteria by using the controls at the bottom. Finally, you can go to the left pane and click the arrow next to the drive name. Doing so will expand the list of folders in which unneeded copies were found. You can right-click a folder and you’ll have an additional menu that provides you with more control over the cleanup.
  9. Once you’re ready, you can click Delete Selected Files.

Duplicate File Finder is not the only feature that can help you deal with low disk space issues. You can also use Auslogics BoostSpeed for file recovery, to clean out junk files, eliminate slowdown causes, resolve registry issues, and optimize the overall performance of your PC.
