Mac duplicate file finder
Following on from my earlier thread here: Duplicate file detection software it now turns out my brother has a large external drive formatted for Mac. What I now need is a recommendation for a free package for OSX that would detect, list and give the option to delete duplicate files as required. Does anyone know of such an application they can recommend?

Can't you use spotlight with the advanced filter search options ( clicking plus symbol to search by document kind / type etc ) then use the CMD / Apple button to select any duplicates manually and once they are highlighted you can either right click on one of the dupes and move to trash or hold CMD / apple and press the back space key ?

Our app Decloner (decloner.com) has a full-featured free 30-day trial period, you could give it a try.

Gemini and Decloner compare files based on their content, so different file names don't matter. This is also why using just Spotlight for finding duplicates is very inaccurate. You may find similarly named files, but there won't be any guarantee that they are really identical; and you will also miss duplicate files that are named differently.
