CCleaner Duplicate File Finder does not work


Recommended Posts

It would be better if you posted a bit more info :)

 

Which operating system are you using?

 

Which build version of Ccleaner ?

 

Are you following the steps here?

(be aware that you must always take great care using the duplicate file finder)

If it were me on Windows 10 I wouldn't use the duplicate file finder.

 

Others may have a different opinion :)

My opinion concurs with hazelnut's. Duplicate finder should only be used to remove things like mp3 or pics. With Win10 this is all more so true.

 

There must, as far as your initial question, be something between the "duplicates" you are observing that is, either by ccleaner or reality, perceived as different.

This is an official software website, so I've removed the mention of competition products in the above post.

This may be an old topic but I am still getting the very annoying and frustrating "File search has completed" running on Windows 7.  The only time it works is when searching from the root directory. Then I get 1000s of files I am not interested in cleaning up just now.

 

 

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't put it any better than PRDIGM who, two years ago, posted: "This may be an old topic but I am still getting the very annoying and frustrating "File search has completed" running on Windows 7.  The only time it works is when searching from the root directory.

C Cleaner v5.60.7307 (64 bit)

Thank you.
