This is a wonderful tool and the best/easiest to use/most complete duplicate finder I've used. I was able to clean out hundreds of megabytes of duplicated photos, consolidate files on different PCs in my house, and have done a number of other useful things because of it. I have only used the free version, so I can't speak for the Pro version. Can't quite figure out why 46% of users removed it. Highly recommended.
