Sorry about the duplicates - I got an error after clicking submit and wasn't returned to the comment page - so I clicked two more times.

First time in over a year I used this one and I'm getting java outofmemoryerror messages. Total memory available to the program is around 350mb. Since I have 2 gig on an eMac running Tiger 10.4.11, it should work fine. I paid for it and the demo of zsDuplicateHunter full version works much better. Maybe I can get what I need done within 30 days. Don't buy this one. It hasn't been upgraded in a long time and may not be supported any longer - I'll find out if I hear from tech support.

Here is an example of a BIG Pre-download hyped program that really doesn't do what the Author claims that it will do. .. I wouldn't buy this.

I bought it previously, but it is no longer supported and doesn't work under Mavericks. I stopped by the site today to look for an update, but it doesn't look like anyone is maintaining the software any more.

Well, I'm still looking --

I'm going to try this one out; the feature set looks extensive. If it can do something the others can't -- and given that the authors read their reviews and comment here, which is excellent -- I'll figure it's worth the money.

Now I'm a fossil, mid-50s, can afford it, and figure part of supporting shareware is supporting the people who use, comment, suggest, criticize, try to be helpful and never pay -- as well as supporting the software writers. Not everyone has money or software-writing competence.

There's significant value to non-paying users who are good beta testers (or willing crash dummies like I am -- follow instructions carefully, and report what breaks, without being helpful at the code level).

I've registered and use DupFinder (1.3.1), DoubletScan (10.2.3), DuplicateCatcher, and FileBuddy. That's over quite a few years, usually early in the shareware author's career, partly to encourage, partly because I found a need for something the app could do, and partly because, well, hell, I try to support the idea, because I remember when there wasn't any shareware. I registered PC-Talk. I think ...

An average application at a ridiculous price. Better buy FileBuddy.

This is a $10.00 app. Not $20.00 Not $15.00 - and not $12.50.

Ten buckaroos, kids.

Developers are going to have to start paying attention to what we are willing to pay for these seldom used utilities, especially when there are so many other similar apps competing for the same market share.

Duplicate Catcher 1.3.0
DupFinder 1.2.3
OmniDiskSweeper 1.4
Doublet Scan 10.2.1

...to name but a few, who do EXACTLY the same thing.

And where did we as customers, decide that is was OK to pay for this stuff many, many times over?

The lifetime use of shareware programs can end up costing huge sums when you start from version 1.x - and five years later the developer is up to version 7.x. or 8 x.

Every time something goes from v.1.x. to 2.x., we buy these things all over again. Over the lifetime of a program, we find ourselves spending far more money than they are worth; especially given the actual time we use most utilities in our daily computing life.

And what's with us paying to be beta testers?? These days nearly all Mac shareware developers charge for updates, simply because, from 1.0 to 2.0, their programs were in constant stages of beta, and 2.0 is really what 1.0 should have been. Not all, but far too many.

I hear other Mac users complain about these issues all the time, but never see anything being discussed in the media; even in this media, here in a customer review forum.

Until a very few years ago, Mac developers made shareware available for one price, for the life of the program. I know from reading many Mac bulletin boards, that there are many relatively new users to the Mac platform, that don't believe this. Well, it's true.

Sharewear developers must begin to recognize, that in an extremely competitive market place, since the release of Mac OS X, they are going to have to compete to survive, and to have any expectation of turning a profit.

Remember: overhead for the shareware developer, is comparatively small, and thus, prices must reflect this. You simply can't justify charging the same fees for your good and services, that the Big Boys do.

In a word: knock-it-off.

--Some do, some dont'. Don't generalize. There are many programs that are free that could easily be $5-25, and many that stay below version 1.0 (and free) for years
