Duplicate & Same Files Searcher (Duplicate Searcher) is an application for searching duplicate files (clones) and NTFS hard links to the same file. It searches duplicate file contents regardless of file name (true byte-to-byte comparison is used). This application allows not only to delete duplicate files or to move them to another location, but to replace duplicates with NTFS hard links as well (unique!).
This application was developed because I haven't find any similar application which allows to operate NTFS-links.
Fast search engine (byte-to-byte comparison and hard link detection algorithm are used).
