As time passes by, we keep filling our computer hard drives with different data files including music, image, video, and data formats. With the increase in the size or space of hard drive, people often tend to manage data and keep on adding stuff onto their hard drives. They tend to notice the fact that, their drive may be filled with a lot of duplicate content overtime, thus taking up some amount of space or even a lot in some cases. For most of the computer users, this case only applies to audio files like: mp3s and wav formats, video formats, and images. We always forget to look over these files and keep filling up hard drive space over and over again with same files. For example: I have a song of say Lifehouse on their singles and the same song on their greatest hits. This makes a duplicate file for the same mp3 file. Just to tell you the truth no matter how observant you are of your collection whether they are images, audio, or videos, you will never keep this thing into consideration. Now you can’t search them on your own, so you can try different duplicate file finder like weeduplicatedetective or with Anti-Twin. Anti-Twin is a small application software which compare files to search for duplicate files or similar files on your hard disk drive. All the similar, identical or duplicate files that were found can either be sent to recycle bin or deleted directly.
How Anti-Twin searches for duplicate files
Anti-Twin is suitable application to find and delete audio files like mp3 and also images. It searches or compares file by byte-by-byte comparison, identical name or similar file names, and pixel-based image comparison.
To search for duplicate file you have to choose two different folders for comparison. Anti-Twin runs its comparison algorithm between files and sub-folders of these two folders which you choose for searching. After the completion of the search between the two folders you’ll be presented with a list of duplicate files.
Anti-Twin is a freeware and supports operating systems like Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8, both the 32 and 64 bit versions.
