CloneSpy can help you saving hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files. In this manner duplicate files have exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time and location. Moreover Clonespy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same filename. Perhaps you have different versions of a file and you want to find all of them and remove the older versions. Furthermore Clonespy can find zero length files. That are files that do not have any content.
Altogether with CloneSpy you can process files which
- are duplicates
- have the same file names
- are duplicates and have the same file
- are zero bytes long
CloneSpy offers you a complex mechanism to decide which files of the duplicate or same name files should be deleted. But it is also possible to leave this decision to the user.
With CloneSpy you can build checksum files from files on CDs (or even on hard drives, etc.) and use them to check if you have these files already on your system. The checksum files will prevent you from playing DJ every time you search for duplicates.
