Compare Contents of any Files In Different Folders and Remove Duplicates
By on May 16th, 2008

File management is a not a real easy task and over a period of time you may have gathered different documents, music files, images and stored it in your PC. During this period you may also made several copies of your files and stored them in different folders leading to duplicate files all over the place.

Hunting down such duplicates can be quite a waste of time and comparing both documents to see that the documents are exactly similar is another headache.

That said here is a very useful utility that will make comparing files a breeze.

File Comparator is a software which allows you to quickly compare contents of any files in specified folders and shows you pairs of file which contains the same data, allowing you to make a decision to delete the duplicate file.

File Comparator can compare content of any type of files and spot the duplicates. The comparison does not take the filename, date etc into consideration for comparison. It will only compare the contents within the file.

In short File Comparator is a duplicate finder which will help you easily find and delete duplicate content from your computer.

I ran a small test and was impressed with the output. I am now raring to put this to test on my 500GB harddrive and run some spring cleaning. File Comparator is completely free to use and is definitely a worthwhile to have. This small and useful utility also makes it to the Techie Buzz must have utilities.
