  • Version: v3.34
  • Synopsis: CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files with exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time, or location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. This can be an issue for example if you have different versions of a file and you want to find and remove the older versions. CloneSpy is able to find zero-byte files.[b]Note:[/b]: The installer now allows you to choose between a 32 or 64-bit version of CloneSpy.
