AllDup search for and remove duplicate files

AllDup find and remove duplicate files
  • Fully customize the duplicate finding process and manage the results
  • Select source folders or drives
  • Define search criteria: name, extension, size, creation date, attributes or content
  • Ignore defined characters and time stamp
  • Exclude files by size
  • Set up file and folder filters
  • File preview panel for results
  • Export results to TXT or CSV
  • Add custom file types
  • Explorer context menu integration is available in options

Tip   Tip

In the toolbar select "Groups" > "Expand All Groups" when previewing search results.


Tip   Tip

From the GUI select "File Filter" then right click to add any desired file type. Use *.* if you want to compare ALL file types.


Tip   Tip

It seems that AllDup is updated quite often. I noticed that if an update is applied then custom settings and custom file filters are lost.

If you open %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\AllDup and backup the config.ini and config4.ini files you can easily restore your custom settings after an update has been applied.


100% free. Portable and installed versions are available.

Download from developer's site:

AllDup - Mp3 Duplicate Finder Software, Non-Duplicate File Finder

Note   Note

AllDup is not just for mp3's. It can work with any defined file types.

Personally I'm in the habit of moving certain personal files from one drive to another. If I ever restore a system image backup on one drive I can end up with duplicates if files that I had already moved to another drive get restored to their original location. Other times I've used file copy instead of cut/ paste. I'm only really interested in duplicates of personal files as it seems to be normal for some software to use duplicates of certain files in different directories and I leave those ones alone.

There is an excellent example of one reason why imaging is not suitable for backing up data files. A folder/file syncing program would avoid this problem. I only image my boot drive and use FreeFileSync to backup my data drives.

Thanks Callender and Jeannie I do regular imaging as a matter of fact and it may be why I am getting "feedback" - most of the duplicity is actually pics and docs and sometimes I find there is even more than two copies even three or four!

I see SIW still on the list. It doesn't look free to me. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place.
The 2011 portable apps version is still available (btw not suitable for Windows 8 or 10)
The portable apps old version download link seems to no longer work.
I'm glad I've got a version since it is a good app.
It probably should be deleted from the free list.

For mjf and members about SIW:

It states on the End User License Agreement page that the Home Edition has been discontinued. Clicking on the freeware license link there will take you to the trial version page and that version is only good for 30days.

If you look at the bottom of the developers page for the SIW Trial Version you will see: The Freeware SIW Home Edition has been discontinued.

I have searched and found numerous examples that SIW has not been freeware for several years or more, One example from Gizmo's Freeware dated December 1st, 2013:

Note: SIW has fallen out of favor because the free version is no longer updated, has to upgrade to Pro version to work on Win8 and above systems, the standard installer contains OpenCandy and the free version is no longer present on their homesite.
