Dup Detector v3.3.0.2 Updated

webfork on 30 Jun 2015
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Aug 2011
  • Suggested by Kongu Tamil

Dup Detector finds duplicate or near-duplicate images by comparing image pixel data. As large image collections can over time pull in duplicates with different file sizes and different names, this program helps track those down and save disk space.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Windows registry. It was a tough call, but I finally decided to accepted it as portable because it is probably not something that you will run that regularly. And when you run the program on a different machine, a few parameters will need to be adjusted anyway.
Stealth: ? No. A yaP configuration file to make Dup Detector portable and stealth is available at
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. The application files are in the {app} folder
  3. Launch DupDetector.exe

Link no longer works! Sad because this is exactly the type of program i was looking for.
