The installation of Dup Detector is sort of easy and intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them, but not easily. You have to enter the path manually, you cannot browse to it.

The program is not exactly intuitive. But a few minutes in the Help file will set you straight.

I put Dup Detector to work on my My Pictures folder. It said that it was comparing 2536 images. After a bit less than 15 minutes it said "Finished 2536 images analyzed. Ready to find dupes." So I went to the next Tab

I picked the Default, pushed the Find dups button and in a few seconds it came up with "Finished: 1000 matching pairs from 2536 image files. ready to view Dups.log. So I went to the View dups Tab. The first twenty or so matches were spot on, but then some really low light images showed up that were not dupes. Then a couple hundred more real dupes then some low light non-matches. This was repeated a couple of times.

But would you believe it, in less that another half hour I had cleaned out My Pictures of all the obvious dupes. There were about 300 dupes, a whole bunch of wasted disk space. I can't even imagine how much time that would have taken me to do by eyeball. Obviously too long, since I have been putting of doing it for years.

In conclusion. What are you waiting for! Go download Dup Detector and let it work for you!
