Duplicate Manager Pro 1.3.5: A Review




Do you have a lot of duplicate and large files on your Mac that take up precious disk space and slow down your performance? Do you want to get rid of them quickly and easily without spending too much time and effort? If so, you might want to check out Duplicate Manager Pro 1.3.5, a Mac app that can help you find and delete duplicate and large files in a matter of minutes.




Duplicate Manager Pro 1.3.5



Introduction




Duplicate Manager Pro is a Mac app that can scan your folders, drives, or libraries for duplicate and large files and remove them automatically or manually. It can also create aliases in place of removed duplicates, so you can still access them if needed.


Why do you need Duplicate Manager Pro? Because having too many duplicate and large files on your Mac can cause various problems, such as:


  • Wasting disk space that could be used for other important files or applications



  • Reducing performance and speed of your Mac



  • Making it harder to find and organize your files



  • Increasing the risk of data loss or corruption



By using Duplicate Manager Pro, you can enjoy the following benefits:


  • Recovering disk space and improving performance of your Mac



  • Keeping your files neat and tidy



  • Saving your time and effort by using smart auto selection feature



  • Customizing your scan settings and exclude list according to your preferences



  • Comparing files by different modes (content, name, date, size, etc.)



How does Duplicate Manager Pro work? It has two modes of finding files: find duplicate files and find large files. You can choose one or both modes depending on your needs. You can also choose one of the seven modes of file comparison by content, name, date, size, etc. Then, you can select the folders, drives, or libraries that you want to scan. You can also exclude certain files, folders, or file types from the scan.


After scanning, Duplicate Manager Pro will show you the results in groups of duplicates or large files. You can preview them using the built-in or external QuickLook feature. You can also sort them by different criteria or search for specific items using advanced filters.


Then, you can use the auto selection feature to automatically select only those duplicates or large files that you really want to remove. You can also manually select or deselect items if you want more control. You can also set the folder priority and define which folder will keep the original file.


Finally, you can remove the selected items by moving them to the Trash or deleting them permanently. You can also create an alias in place of removed duplicates if you want to keep a reference to them.

Then, you need to choose one or both modes of finding files: find duplicate files or find large files.

Finally, you need to click on the "Scan" button at the bottom right corner of the app window. The app will start scanning your selected locations for duplicates or large files.
