Our Review:

Over the past few days, I've had the opportunity to take a look at a program by the name of SearchMyFiles by NirSoft. It didn't take long to realize just how well this program works.

It features a clean and simple layout and the ability to perform both standard searches or duplicate file searches with as little or as many filters as you want.

For standard searches, the plentiful search filters allow for some effective searching. However, I didn't find the filters to be as useful when searching for duplicate files though. Despite that, I was still impressed with the numerous search filters such as searching for files made within specific time frames, a certain file size range, certain file extensions, and so much more. In addition, the program can be used on a USB drive, and you have a program that is not only useful, but flexible too.

The only negative I could muster up on this one was that the search results are in a separate window. Having to switch back and forth between search options and search results was a little bit of a drag. Although not a big deal, it would be nice to have everything in the same window.

In my opinion, NirSoft has really hit the nail on the head with this one. I've tried the other duplicate file detector programs and I can honestly say that this one is the best one thus far.

only 10 files can be removed unless register
Norton removes most utilities from the site.

It's pretty pointless using any kind of security software unless you understand how it works. IF you read the documentation provided by Norton you will understand why this happens and that it has nothing to do with the safety of either the site which is one of the most respected in the business or the products it contains.
