Bytessence DuplicateFinder (BDF) detects all the cloned files that you might have on your computer. These files, in addition to taking up valuable space, can increase antivirus scan time, slow defragmentation and searches, and make it more difficult to organize your files.

The program employs optimized detection system and file filters to reduce scanning time. Detected files can be removed in no time with the help of the automatic file selector and the predefined set of actions (copying, moving or recycling).

Might be my new favorite duplicate finding program on the site next to DoubleKiller (and certainly much easier to use).

Hello! I am the developer behind BDF. I just released a new version of the program (1.3) which fixes some annoying bugs.

If you can reproduce the crash, please enable logging from the Settings dialog. The error handler should catch the exception and will write it in the log. You can send the log to the support e-mail and I'll try to fix the problem. Thanks and don't hesitate to contact me if you find bugs.

Tried to run this app twice on the same 500GB external HD (WinXP 32bit), both times the process reached stage 5 ("results") and crashed/terminated with no warning.

I gave up.
It's a shame since it's fairly small, easy to use and the UI is cleaner than many other programs I tried.

However, according to the homepage, it does not seem to support 64bit systems...

Looks promising: leighweight, simple interface.
