Top dog of duplicate finders

I have tried many dup finders over the years and actually have 5 in my applications now but after going back and forth many times between these apps
I always default to Photo Sweeper as it has for me the best set up for finding and then checking over the found duplicates to insure I am not tossing the wrong one.
You do have to learn to operate with the interface a little but it seemed the most intuitive to me and I quickly learned to adjust it to my needs so I could rid my self
of many libraries worth of dups (iPhoto, Photos, Aperture, Lightroom ) saving me at least 100GB of HD space.

The best app for this I have found

I’ve tried quite a few apps to find and eliminate duplicate photos, and this is by far the best. Excellent ability to recognize duplicates, which can easily be fine-tuned. Excellent ability to automatically select which photos to keep, based on many different criteria, which can be customized and prioritized. This is the one to get, in my opinion!

VERY nice piece of Software

6 yr old macbook pro. 500 GB drive. Always filling up with photos and videos. Started looking at all the tools to clean things up and actually downloaded and tried a few other, but found I could not trust them to delete files that were not actually duplicates.

Used photo sweeper, step 1 for me delete duplicates: freed up 39 G of disk space.
I spot checked a number of the dups and delete a few unimportant ones by hand to verify and felt very confident I was not deleting anything that was not really a dup.

This tool has a lot of options and i think in the end it will free up another 100G of storage for me after I run with filters set a bit looser.
