SpaceMan 99 benefits
Byte for byte duplicate file finding
Since version 1, SpaceMan 99 has always supported true
byte for byte comparison of files to determine if two files are identical.
This method guarantees that when duplicate files are found, the duplicate files are identical.
Using checksums may be quicker, but there is always a chance that two non-identical files may have the same checksum.
Newer versions of SpaceMan 99 also support the use of checksums to test if two files are identical, but always as a user option
so you can decide whether to trade speed of scanning for the small chance that two non-identical files may appear to be identical.
SpaceMan 99 uses intelligent algorithms so that even when byte for byte testing for duplicate files is selected,
it first tries other quicker methods to determine if two files are different.
Powerful and easy to use tools to delete duplicate files
Once duplicate files have been identified, the most common next step is to delete all of them except one.
SpaceMan 99 pioneered the methods for selecting files to delete from a set of duplicates.
These include selecting all files in a folder that have duplicates elsewhere in the file system,
or all files outside a particular folder that have duplicates in that folder.
SpaceMan 99 uses a two stage process for deleting files.
Files are first marked for deletion, at which point the complete list can be reviewed.
Once you are happy with the list, the marked files can be deleted.
SpaceMan 99 uses the Windows system delete command to delete files, so provided you have selected the Windows
option to send deleted items to the recycle bin, you can always undo deletions anyway.
