DupeFinder is a simple application for locating, moving, renaming, and deleting duplicate files in a directory structure. It's perfect both for users who haven't kept their hard drives very well organized and need to do some cleaning to free space, and for users who like to keep lots of backup copies of important data "just in case" something bad should happen.

Release Notes: This release replaces usage of an external md5sum command line utility with native MD5 sum digest calculations (using the md5 module). This improves performance calculating MD5 digests for small files and eliminates a cumbersome dependency for Windows users.
Release Notes: A bug that prevented the file dialog from opening with newer versions of Qt was fixed. This bug prevented selecting search directories, renaming files, and saving reports. Some bugs relating to symbolic links were also fixed. For safety reasons, symbolic links are ignored. (If symbolic links were included in search results along with normal files, it is possible that a user could delete the only true instance of a file while leaving only a symbolic link.) Broken symbolic links (including self-referential symlinks), which previously caused the duplicate search to fail are now ignored.
Release Notes: A problem where the interface code did not work correctly with newer versions of PyQt (3.14 or newer) was fixed. Only people who had problems running the 1.0 version need to download this update.
