duplicate finder

Would be great if Nero had its own duplicate finder that is compatible with its own system. In particular, when duplicates get established during back-ups, files could be flagged and removed if desired. Like myself, uploading is costing me money. Removing unwanted files from back-up jobs is also cumbersome and costly in the end. If there is an easy solution, it would give the program a cutting edge in the market place.

  • Not a bad idea but, the key words you wrote are "if desired". That requires you to make a decision. Do you want to watch the backup of a large number of files continuously so you can decide if you want to backup a file that is flagged as a duplicate or, do you want to wait until it's done and then wade through a list of flagged files? What criteria does it use to flag the duplicate files? Do you want to have the code written such that it deletes "duplicates" automatically. Maybe the correct way of saying the latter is "do you trust it".

    You might be interested in Duplicate File Finder here- http://www.auslogics.com/en/. I happened to read about it in Maximum PC minimum BS magazine and posted in another persons suggestion to add the same type of utility to Nero MediaHome.

  • I don't know if you're still getting notifications from the forum but the Duplicate Manager was added in Nero v2018. Not sure if one needs to buy Platinum to get it.
