Key Metric Software has released version 1.1 of Duplicate File Detective -
its network-enabled duplicate file management software. This new product was
developed for IT professionals and power users looking to reduce file system
clutter, speed up file searches and indexing processes, reduce time and
media used to perform backups, and regain space on space-limited resources
(like laptop drives, memory devices, etc.).
Duplicate File Detective allows organizations to quickly search and manage
duplicate files across multiple local and network file systems in a single
pass. It uses file content analysis technology to precisely identify
duplicates, even in cases where file names are different. Duplicate File
Detective produces interactive duplicate file reports that can be exported
in HTML, XML, and CSV formats - and optionally re-imported later for further
analysis. Duplicate files that are identified can be safely managed with
integrated tools that facilitate moving, archiving, or deleting files that
meet specific criteria.
Duplicate File Detective runs on Windows 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP Home, XP Pro,
and Windows Server 2003. A single-user license costs $34.95, with discounts
available for educational, government, and non-profit institutions. It can
be downloaded for free from http://www.duplicate-file-detective.com/, and offers a 15-day, fully functional trial period.
