For the management of digital photos, I was looking for a tool to find
duplicates. Among the multitude of existing programs, I didn't find the
wanted, tiny and powerful. Finally, I did it
myself. I make it
available free of charge to interested users.
It is a simple
and efficient tool to search for duplicates (exact copies of files by
comparing their contents using MD5 signatures). Optimized to the
maximum, the software is tiny and does not require installation.
However, it is very efficient because its operation is based on a
powerful engine that creates file signatures quickly and compares them
at a lightning speed.
It it is very easy to use: simply drag and drop the names of the

with the utmost care, this tool is very easy to use and does not do

duplicate files and the result can be exported in CSV format for batch
processing, for example. It does just that, but he does it very well.
It has been designed to meet my needs and I hope it
will also answer
It's freeware. And when it's free, it's even better... Isn't it ?
Feel free to post comments, suggestions or report any
bugs. There is probably
none because the
software has been
extensively tested ... but who knows :-)
