Twins Mini for Mac
Duplicate files unnecessarily take up disk space that could be used in a more productive manner. Twins Mini is a small application designed to help you find such files and quickly remove them.
Twins Mini takes a modern and minimalist approach on both workflow and interface design: to get started you just have to drag and drop the folder you want to analyze on top of the main window. You can easily monitor the process and you will receive an audio alert when the scanning is over.
The application will automatically open the list of duplicates: each item comes with a box that needs to be checked if you want to actually remove that specific item.
You can use the QuickLook plug-in to view details about each file and open it in an application. At the same time, via the contextual menu accessible through a right click, you can choose to view the file in a Finder window.
The main Twins Mini main window resembles the iTunes interface in some respects. In the top status panel you can view the number of detected duplicates and their combined size. The same area includes buttons that will help you manage the files: check, uncheck and delete.
The Twins Mini Preferences window provides access to a couple of interesting features: if the “Item selection warning” is enabled you will receive alerts if you are trying to delete files needed for the system’s consistency.
You can decide how you want the application to deal with bundles: do not scan, look for duplicate bundles, look for duplicate bundles and check their content or treat bundle content as regular files and folders. Furthermore, you can choose to scan the iPhoto library or choose to exclude certain folders or file extensions.
To conclude, Twins Mini provides a simple and intuitive solution for quickly detecting and dealing with duplicate files without too much hassle.
