Publisher's Description

DupKiller is a fast and powerful tool for searching and removing duplicate files. The program will find unneeded copies of files in those locations where you even would not consider to search. There is comparison not only by name, last modification date or size. One can compare files by their contents, and what's more, to set what per cent they must match; one can search different-length files, include or exclude files by mask, etc. A lot of scan options helps flexibly customize your search. In addition, unlike another programs of this sort, DupKiller performs all operations faster and better, because of complicated algorithms of data processing built in the search mechanism of the program.

RE: bit by bit comparison

I believe the program is looking for similar content in its scan and does so by default.

I like the auto select functionality and used this today to do some specific cleaning. DupKiller did a fine job and saved me much time.

Weird program. Does not seem to use Checksums for its comparisons, but byte-by-byte compares very file. Also a very strange program if you look in the documentation to understand what it does - you will find funny things like:

"It gives a frequentative growth of scan speed"
Hu?

"Use quick comparison: not all duplicate files may be found"
So what exactly does it do? Even the FAQ on the webpage doesn't tell us, even though it blathers about the option for several lines.

Also, judging from the FAQ, dupkiller makes byte-by-byte comparisons of files that are not the same size unless you manually tell it not to do so. What would that be good for? Different size files can never be identical.

And even though "DupKiller is absolutely freeware." (Webpage) i can enter a Registration Code in the "Help / Enter Registration Code" Menu.

To sum it up, it's a very strange program that uses a very inefficient and obscure way to compare the files. It may be free, but I wouldn't recommended it.
