[prMac.com] Stafford, United Kingdom - It is not uncommon to amass duplicate files on your Mac. Maybe you have downloaded the same file multiple times or copied files but did not delete the originals. Maybe you had backed up your data then copied it back to your Mac only to find that some of your original files are still on there too. Either way, duplicate files are often not required and just end up taking up disk space. Duplicate Sweeper from Wide Angle Software locates these duplicates and helps to reclaim disk space.
Duplicate Sweeper makes finding duplicate files easy. It enables you to search for duplicates of all file types, such as your photos, videos, music or documents and you can select which folders to search for duplicate files in. For even more control, search preferences can be added so that only files matching your given criteria are searched. Duplicate Sweeper can ignore files that are larger than and/or smaller than given sizes. It can also ignore files with the given file extensions so that any important file types can be left out of the search.
Once Duplicate Sweeper has found all of the duplicates in the given folders, it allows you to select which files from the duplicates you wish to remove. Duplicate Sweeper has a built in document viewer so that you can check a file is not important before selecting to remove it. To speed thing up, you can also choose to automatically select to keep the newest or oldest file. This selection can be made on individual groups of files, for file types or for all the duplicate groups found.
Before removing files, Duplicate Sweeper displays a quick list of all the files that will be removed. It will also display how much space you will save by removing those files as well as a small breakdown of the media types being removed. Once you are happy to remove those files, Duplicate Sweeper can send them all to your Trash with a single click. These files can then be emptied from your Trash to delete them permanently or restored should the need arise.
