    "It mostly does what it's supposed to. Multiple scans might be needed. Further, it only checks one's hard drive, not an SD card. It also has very loud sound effects for some reason. Lots of ads, as well. "

    "This is the best possible solution to my duplicates problem. It looks like this app will do everything I need it to in terms of finding multiple copies of things on my computer and getting rid of what I don't need to free up some space on my machine. The only problem is, the link takes me to a site in Russian, which I do not understand. "
