Quickly track down and remove duplicate files with dupeGuru

DupeGuru is a powerful tool to detect and help you delete duplicate files which might be wasting valuable hard drive space.

It's very easy to get started. Simply launch dupeGuru, choose a folder (or drive), click Scan and the program will begin to check your location - and all its subfolders - for duplicates. Inevitably this can take a few minutes as there's a lot to do, but dupeGuru is still relatively quick for this kind of tool, and is able to identify duplicates even if they don't have the same file name.

When the process is complete, a simple report shows you any duplicates which have been uncovered. You can sort this by name, folder or file size to get a quick overview of the situation. And there are various configuration options to extend the report further. Clicking Columns > Kind, say, adds a file type column, and clicking that column header then allows you to (for instance) group all PDF files together.

As you browse the report, so you're able to select particular duplicates you'd like to process. And dupeGuru can then carry out a host of options on those files: you can send them to the Recycle Bin, copy or move them somewhere, remove them from the results list, add them to an Ignore List (so they won't be listed as duplicates in future), and more.

For the most part this all works very well, but as with all similar tools, you do need to use dupeGuru with care. Some duplicates are entirely necessary and normal, and removing them may cause very serious problems, so don't delete anything unless you're entirely sure it's safe.

Version 3.9.1 is a bug fix release (Changelog)

Verdict:

A great way to keep your hard drive lean and mean, ensuring maximum storage space and performance.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
