dupeGuru – find duplicate files


Reliability is crucial with a tool of this type. You don’t want to delete files that are needed.

We’ve run the utility intensively, and we’re satisfied that the program is reliable. But we still recommend a good backup strategy.

dupeGuru offers a good range of features although it doesn’t use particularly sophisticated algorithms. An interesting project to follow.

At the time of writing, the project has amassed 1.6k GitHub stars.
