Finder: maybe the best free duplicate file finder program (via: Mac-Forums Discussions)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/29

Every once in a while you’re looking for a solution to a problem, and slap yourself to the head that you’ve been overlooking a real obvious solution.

This case: finding duplicate files on Mac OS X.

pendlewitch had this great tip: use the Finder!

You can do this in Finder for free, it’s a bit time consuming but if you’ll get them all eventually.

  1. Open a new Finder window
  2. In the search field, enter the wild card asterisk symbol *
  3. Arrange by Size

I find it best in List view.

Prepare to be gobsmacked at how much duplication you do have.

I totally agree with his last sentence (:
