Tips for Using the Duplicate Files Finder
You can access the duplicate files finder tool by clicking the main menu on the top left corner and then selecting “Duplicate Files”.
By default, the scanning folder is your user folder. In most cases you don’t need to change this setting although you can add new folders for scanning, by clicking the button “Add folders” that is located at the right end.
Click the button “Scan” to start the scanning process. Wait patiently for the scanning complete.
Once the scanning is completed, you will see the scanning results. By default, the duplicate files groups are sorted by the file size in descending order. Select one file group from the left column and review the duplicate files in this group at the right column. Carefully identify and select the files that you want to remove, then click the button “Clean” to remove them all together.
The duplicate files scan results window can display maximum 100 file groups. If your results are more than 100, it will be displayed as multiple pages. You need to turn pages to review all the result. Note, please review and clean the files page by page. The app doesn’t remember your select files in the previous page when you turn to next.
When reviewing the files, you may want to click the button “…” to open the folder where the file is located.
You don’t have to clean the scan result all at once. They are stored for 7 days. To access them, just click the link “Last Scan Result” beside the button “Scan”. After 7 days, the results are looked as invalid and you need to do a fresh re-scan if you would like to review and clean them again.
