Easy Duplicate File Finder helps you find and remove duplicate files on your PC. It finds true duplicates by content (instead of file name and size alone). You can scan multiple folders/drives at the same time, and the search can be restricted by using a scan mask and/or specifying a size condition. Lists of duplicates can be exported to HTML.

Note: linking to what appears to be the last free version (2.4).

Runs on:WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch EasyDuplicate.exe.

I confirm that this link gives good portable version 2.4

I totally detest as thoroughly non-portable
This insists upon adding its own Start Menu folder with 4 links from the system to itself,
and adds itself to "Programs and Features" as an item that can be uninstalled.
It may well use the registry - I just have not inspected that because what I have seen so far is horrendous.

Maybe we could link here instead: http://www.lupopensuite.com/db/easyduplicatefinder.htm (only reputable link I could find)

The download link that points to the Softpedia website no longer has v2.4

@Kirinis: That's what I found too, but sadly it's v2.2.4 and buggy.

There seems to be a fare s

Note on V2.4.1 as found above - Thanks to 'Netverse at Yahoo'
V2.4.1 seems ok but I cant find any difference from v240 except;
It will initialise parameters from the local .ini file OK,
but will always attempt to write the .ini file back to the user profile,
which some may feel strongly about :-)
Has anyone noticed any other changes between the two versions?

i've been using this program since 2 years now.... clean all my pcs / laptops, home and work.... 6 in total. performed cleaning after 2 recoveries, use it to clean my external HDD, and still using it till this day.
It is portable, it is freeware, and it RULES.... FAST EASY and RELIABLE..... stop complaining about it

Now this isn't too bad below, It's only AD Supported. I believe it may be fully functional. The last time I looked, it was a 30 day trial.
So if AD supported doesn't bother you, then go here.
