dupeGuru overview

dupeGuru is a tool to find duplicate files on your computer. It can scan either filenames or contents. The filename scan features a fuzzy matching algorithm that can find duplicate filenames even when they are not exactly the same.

  • dupeGuru is efficient. Find your duplicate files in minutes, thanks to its quick fuzzy matching algorithm. dupeGuru not only finds filenames that are the same, but it also finds similar filenames.
  • dupeGuru is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. The Preference page of the help file lists all the scanning engine settings you can change.
  • dupeGuru is safe. Its engine has been especially designed with safety in mind. Its reference directory system as well as its grouping system prevent you from deleting files you didn't mean to delete.
  • Do whatever you want with your duplicates. Not only can you delete duplicates files dupeGuru finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.

Not sure why, but after all these years, DupeGuru is still to most efficient when it comes to finding duplicate images. The more dissimilar the images are (size, colour, temperature, light etc.) the more this becomes true. Unfortunately, it's rather slow and can't handle larger numbers of images.

Looks like this great tool have been neglected for a while... :-( v4.0.3 that's linked here is ok (DL from the old dev) but I had a hard time opening the one from the new dev (which appears to be identical, in the end...) At the present time, there's a v4.0.4 but only for Windows and Linux...

This app solved large number of problems for me. This is the best tool to find duplicates by their file names. Others do with checksum searches. For files stored outside of the Spotlight, none of them work.

Although not the best interface for Pictures duplicate comparison — you have to use QuickLook — this has now totally stopped working for me on several pictures/movies folders. I just get a crash that I’m supposed to post to GitHub, but it’s already there. I get the feeling the develop is not working on fixing this daily. Time to move on perhaps. Anyone got any others they prefer?

Simple use. Just drag a folder in the window and dupeguru finds duplicates, even with not exactly the same names. It is then easy to eliminate the duplicates (or nearly duplicates) you want to remove, within the application. It shows the percentage of difference between files and their creation/modification date to simplify the choice for removing one of the two (or more) duplicate files. Great app !

Great app. It has saved me so much disk space especially moving between multiple computers. PE and ME are great to! Desired feature: comparing a directory structure and consolidating files.

Was using this app to find duplicate pictures. It did manage to find exact copies very well however it was lacking in finding visually similar images of different file size. Went to download dupeguru picture edition and those were found. Very good app!

Great options so far in this app. Glad I found it. Makes sifting through duplicates much nicer. I am having an issue getting it to recognize photoshop and adobe illustrator files though. Can it sort these files?

Works nicely, pretty quick. Two suggestions: 1 - When the results load, show dates / time of files 2 - it doesn't always correctly identify the original and the dupe ie sometimes gets them the wrong way round, but you can't delete what it think is the original. Other than that, good work.

I don't require to use this app often, but have finally contributed to the developer because I think it's only fair to support what they're doing. There is also a dupe guru picture edition, which is very helpful to me. My thanks to this developer!

The screen font size in the results window is way too small (27" iMac). I can find no way to increase font size, although the developer's site has a request from another user.

The ability to do FUZZY searching alone makes this a VERY useful app. I use this tool to search through a folder for items with items whose filenames contain bits of text that matches in some cases. I dont use this to look for exact-duplicate filenames. The ability to find filenames that are "close" to another with a folder has made this a valuable tool. does anyone know of any other tools that perform this operation on OSX? IF you're not using this tool for it's FUZZY searching ability, you're not getting the super-unique power this app offers IMO.
