Singlemizer is stable and fairly speedy, and finds true duplicates only. This doesn't mean it's perfect. So that you know what to expect, these are my gripes (not show stoppers, mind you, otherwise this wouldn't rate it four stars): 1) Singlemizer is not exactly easy to use, unless you know answers to "what is the UTI for a jpeg image", for example (???? - that's what I thought). A few more sliders and popup lists would be helpful. 2) Singlemizer is not fully keyboard controllable (setting the delete checkmark on individual files still needs the mouse). 3) Singlemizer compares files only. There's no option to compare contents of folders and delete the folder only if it's exactly the same as another folder. Or, if there is such an option, I have no idea how to use it. 4) For every file, the console logs "file access by '/rsrc' was deprecated in 10.4". I'm thinking scanning would be faster without that warning. But overall, the price is right and it surely beats some of the other options I've tried, especially when comparing a large number of files (10,000 or more).

I've been using Singlemizer for several years,. have tried others to get around two quirks in the interface but always come back to this one. I don't know if the developer is still working on it three years after the latest version, but if he or she is, I have two suggestions for the UI: 1) When duplicates are detected the list allows you to select any of them except the first. Could there not be a preferences option not allow us to select ANY of the listed duplicates for deletion? 2) It would be useful to be able to select the filename (basename) of any duplicate using the mouse. This would allow finding derivatives or versions of a file which are not themselves duplicates. 5 stars for Singlemizer nonetheless. The best thing about it is its clean, uncluttered interface.

Well on first impressions seems to work ok though going through on the trial and selecting all the duplicates for 30 minutes only to be told I then have to buy before I can delete them feels like a horrible marketing ploy for this reason I am not giving it a good score. Especially given the review below indicates you get a number of scans before you have to buy. Be warned you have to buy this before you can use it properly and so ifyou're not prepared to do this it will waste your time - seems a fairly good programme though still labour intensive process that has irked me.

this is an app I've been wishing for for ages, so pleased to finally have it!! I knew I had quite a lot of duplicates from old backup issues years ago, couldn't face the daunting task thinking it would take a very long time. This app cleaned them up for me in a way I feel much more comfortable with (creating aliases to the original) and in a very short time I gained back 3.67GB of wasted space on my Mac. Yay Singlemizer!! Thank you for creating this great tool.

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.

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.
