Search, manage and delete duplicate file
What harm will duplicate file do?
Duplicate files will waste your hard disk space.
Though hard disk is large and cheap nowadays, hundreds of megabytes duplicate files will still waste too much of your hard disk.
Duplicate files will waste your time.
Managing thousands of duplicate files will make you headache. You have to open them one by one to see whether they are really duplicate and decide which to delete or move.
Where do duplicate files come from?
Internet download. Before you download the files to your local machine, you don't know whether it's the one you have downloaded before because each website may give the same file a different file name or even different description.
Removable storage. If you often copy files between the office or the school and your home, you may often copy the same files to different place twice or even more.
How does FileCake help you to search, manage and delete duplicate files?
FileCake provides powerful features that can let you search duplicate files fast and safely.
With FileCake, you can,
Choose where to search in, the whole local network, the whole disk, a single partition, or several folders. Further more, you can set several paths to be excluded from the search list, which can help you to protect the system directories.
Set a number of criteria.
Set the comparison options. You can choose how the files be compared. Only compare file size? Compare MD5? Or even compare the file conten byte by byte.
- File name patterns: for example, include *.j*, *.doc and exclude *.java.
- File size: for example, the file size must between 100K and 1M.
- File date and time: for example, you can set to search files that were created one year ago. This is very useful to find the old documents.
- File attribute: for example, the file size must be 'read only'. This is useful to search files that were copied from CD or DVD.
- Image dimension: for example, the images' width must be bigger than 300 pixels. This is very useful when you are searching images.
Manage found files.
You can execute many actions on found files. These actions include,
Common file management. Copy, cut, delete, rename and more.
Internal file viewer. With the internal file viewer, you can view the files without open any external program.
Create shortcut. This is a powerful feature that allows you to create shortcut for a master file in several locations (usually they're where the duplicate files locate in), thus you can delete all the duplicate files except the master file to save disk space with shortcut files that link to the master file.
Compute MD5 checksum. FileCake support big files (bigger than 4G). This feature is useful to check the files' integrality.
Wipe (File shredder).
Timesaving features on managing duplicate files
Internal file viewer let you view the file content quickly to assure the file content is really worth deleting or moving to another place.
Search in result with more criteria. You can search in the found files for the files that are oldest, older, newer, newest, and other criteria. This helps you to manage duplicate files more easily.
