What are duplicate files?
1. The music, photo, video or app that you downloaded from the internet twice or more.
2. The music, photo, video or app that you received via Bluetooth twice or more.
3. The cached images or thumbnails, some media apps create them.
4. The backup files, some backup apps create them.
The duplicate/dupe files have the same content, regardless of file extension, regardless of different names.
The duplicates occupy a lot of storage space, slow down the file search speed and prevent you from downloading more music, photo, video or apps, it's difficult to distinguish them one by one.
With Search Duplicate File, an Android smart utility app, you can locate and remove these duplicate files easily and accurately! It can free up a lot of storage space on your Android device!
It is the first Android app used to search for duplicate files, since 2011, and it is the fastest and most powerful duplicate remover!
