Auslogics Duplicate File Finder
You can never be too careful with deleting file duplicates; Auslogic offers plenty of fail-safe options.

Just how many copies of the same file exist on your hard drive? While some people take great risks with their data, others end up creating backup after backup, or copying files here, there and everywhere, until multiple copies are left cluttering up their hard drive.

Duplicate file finders used to simply point out files with identical file names – it was then up to you to decide if the files really were the same and so one or more copies could be safely disposed of. But that runs its own risks, which is why today’s duplicate file-finding tools need to be really savvy when handling people's data.

Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is one such tool that bends over backwards to be careful while giving you the opportunity to locate redundant files to clear up much needed file space. Start by selecting your drives and whether Auslogics should scan all files or simply those file types (audio, video, images, archive and applications) you select.

It then performs a three-pass scan of your selected drives for the files you wish to root out: filename, last modified date, and finally MD5 checksum. The first two options can be disabled, which will enable Auslogics to discover identical files that don’t share the same name or modified dates, while the MD5 checksum – the equivalent of a file’s unique fingerprint – ensures the risk of finding non-duplicate files is incredibly slim.

Once the scan completes, you’ll be presented with a list of files. Tick those you wish to remove and opt to send them to the Recycle Bin (the default action), delete them permanently or archive them to the program’s Rescue Center, which gives you a fallback option should you later discover the file is needed after all, although you won’t free up as much drive space by doing so. It’s quick, simple and – if you choose the Rescue Center option – risk-free.

7.0.17.0 (Version History):

Resolved some localization issues.
Fixed a few minor bugs.

Verdict:

Reasonably fast, thorough and with that all-important backup option, Auslogics Duplicate File Finder is well worth checking out if your hard drive is running out of space.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
