Search for duplicates

To search for duplicates

  1. Select the Tools | Search menu item to open the search window.
  2. Click Search for duplicates
  3. Type part or all of the name of the file or folder, or type a word or phrase that is in the file.
  4. Mark Search also by file name to search both by the name of a file and the name of an item.
  5. Type a part of the comment of the file or folder.
  6. If you do not know either piece of information or want to narrow your search further, select one or more of the remaining options:
    • In Look in, click the drive, folder, or network you want to search.
    • Click When was it modified? to look for files that were created or modified on or between specific dates.
    • Click What size is it? to look for files of a specific size.
  7. Find duplicates by:
    • Click Name to find items with the same name.
    • Click Size to find items with equal size.
    • Click Last modified date to find items which were modified at the same time.
    • Note: the multiple criteria use the logical AND. For example, if you mark 'Name' and 'Size', it means searching for duplicates where names and sizes are the same.
  8. Click Start.

Note: If you get too many results, try using additional search criteria to make your search more specific.
