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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
