Cisdem DuplicateFinder for Mac
Cisdem DuplicateFinder is a light and user-oriented Mac OS application that provides the required tools and features to find and remove duplicate files from your hard disks.
Simple and intuitive duplicate finder that helps you clean up your Mac
Cisdem DuplicateFinder comes with a simple and intuitive interface that enables you to quickly select the folders you want to scan for duplicate items.
Once the folders are selected, Cisdem DuplicateFinder allows you to apply various search filters that will exclude certain files from the duplicate list.
To apply filters you have to access the Filters slide-panel you just have to click on the “Gear” button. From the Filters slide-panel you can select the file categories you want to include in the scanning process.
Highly customizable scanning process
Moreover, you can configure Cisdem DuplicateFinder to ignore packages and narrow down your results list by setting the minimum and maximum files size of the duplicate files. Cisdem DuplicateFinder also offers you the option to sort duplicates based on their number, size or scanning order.
At the end of the scanning process, all detected duplicates are organized into groups, such as Documents, Images, Music, Compressed, Videos and Other, each with its own color code. Cisdem DuplicateFinder also generates an animated graphic that helps you visualize the space distribution between file types.
Preview images and reveal duplicates in the Finder
From each set of duplicate files you can choose to select the ones you want to delete or you can choose to hide certain items. Furthermore, you can reveal the selected file in your Finder and, if it is a supported image format, you also can preview the thumbnail directly from within Cisdem DuplicateFinder.
Although Cisdem DuplicateFinder is easy to use and smooth running, it does not provide its users with the option to select multiple duplicates based on various criteria, such as creation date or file size, audio quality and other related information.
In conclusion, Cisdem DuplicateFinder might prove to be useful if you have to deal with a small number of duplicate files. However, if you need to remove duplicate files from large folders with hundreds or thousands of files, you’ll be better off using other applications, some of which come at zero costs.
