can identify files having the same file name and approximately the same size.
Once it identifies any duplicates, you can make them delete or move them to a different folder. Exorting a list of all equal files without removing any files.
What it can’t do ?
It can’t detect when you save a word file two times, same goes for the image files or songs. The explanation for this is pretty clear. “Word stores individual data in every file saved to disk (something like save time or file name), even when it is the “same” document. Therefore, the files are different and won’t be detected as equal by CloneSpy.”
