19/20. So who doesn't want to pay less?
Great Mac application that does consistently what it is designed for. Users and archivists! Anyone who maintains libraries of files.

Looks like this app is no longer under development or available, as the download links no longer work and the home page is all-but blank

Pettifogger0712, you may need to clear your browser cache. The download link works just fine, and the developer's Web page for the application is far from blank. I think that counting an application out of the running just because it hasn't been updated in four months is a bit premature.

Thanks! Works fine now...when I visited the site a few hours ago it was almost blank other than a message saying that the domain had been reserved but that no content had been uploaded onto it yet :-) I actually purchased Singelmizer a few months ago via MUPromo and it is a very nifty little app as well!

This is the only program, that I know of, that will replace duplicates with hard links. So that is a plus.

However, when it tells me that I have duplicate folders, what if I tell it to replace them with hard links? The menus do seem to offer that as an option.

It would be nice to be able to select a default behavior. And if your mouse stutters on the wrong option while selecting what to do--too bad. Instead of a pull down menu that immediately executes, I'd rather see radio buttons and then some do/execute button to cause what you've selected to happen. That would be safer.

Once it has run a scan, it isn't obvious how one deselects the files to act upon. It should be possible to do this, but how isn't obvious.

Lastly, it really would be nice if this ran on Snow Leopard. The fact that it doesn't is very poor marketing and leaves a big opening for competition to take the prize away.

The latest Singlemizer version requires Mountain Lion (10.8), as stated on both Singlemizer's website and MacUpdate listing.

There are also versions for the previous releases of the OS X. On our website you can find many of them, starting from Leopard. This listing also has "Download Older Version" link.

Singlemizer that runs on Lion (10.7):

Singlemizer is an excellent and easy-to-use program with an uncluttered interface. I tried the demo versions of several de-duplicators listed here on Macupdate and found myself uncertain as to what the other programs were doing. For an application whose purpose in life is to zap files, certainty is a Good Thing :)

Singlemizer has the notion of a "master" or reference folder (one whose copy is always kept when duplicates are found elsewhere). By default it's the first folder one selects for checking but one can specify it explicitly if needed. If like me one has multiple copies of files scattered over a bunch of external drives, the odd DVD or USB key, and you want to consolidate them into a single collection on your new, auto-backed-up Mac, this simple feature is vastly useful. One of the competing programs didn't have it and I couldn't really tell with the others.

Singlemizer also found duplicates which one of the others didn't. It's a good choice.

Yeah, this is the killer feature of this app. Knowing that if you have 2 songs the same you can say "Don't delete the stuff in the iTunes folder only the others" makes this the best app of this type.

2013- October- Have to agree. Demo has been great and it worked, simply and clearly from first attempt.
Defaults are excellent and hands on control is better than any other I've seen. The automated finding and managing are better than others I've tried.
A must buy for the arsenal when one has 15+ years of archived goodies rolling around 6 or 7 types of media.

I've loved using Singlemizer for quite a while now but I think version 3 is a step backward. I used to be able to exclude folders from my search so, for example, if I were scanning the Documents folder I could tell it to ignore a specific sub-folder within that which I know will always return results I don't care about (Microsoft User Data). I like things to be simple, but I also like to have options.

I really like the trial period - number of scans rather than the typical number of days.

I started comparing de-dupe utilities many months ago, but didn't finish. I'm now ready to pick one, and I still have 18 Singlemizer scans left.

Constantly crashes.. seems to not accept more than 100 files before CPU goes to 100% and hangs.. I have to keep restarting it, which means its useless.

Downloaded trial Singlemizer and start scanning my Boot Disk (SSD). 100% CPU utilization, App not responding and after 10 minutes I have to be force closed the App. Tried it again on my Home Folder, same result! Open up AppZapper and dragged Singlemizer into it. ZAP!

A properly written App should not freeze when it is busy. It should update the user on what it is doing. I will try this promising app again when the developer has fixed this issue.
