find and delete duplicate files
I just realized that I have tons of duplicate files on my year-old 27 iMac.
Many files have 5 or more duplicates. Some a dozen.
I have read good things about Singlemizer.
"Every solution creates a new problem."
1. Is getting a duplicate finding and deleting program a good idea?
2. Is Singlemizer the best for finding and deleting duplicate files?

find and delete duplicates
I am pretty sure they are duplicates. In general, things I created on Word, Excel, InDesign, PDFs.
I thought it was impossible to save different files under the same name in the same program.
Anyway, when I search for a file, I will find 5 - 10 copies of it.

My name is Konstantin Pavlikhin, i'm the developer of Singlemizer.
I've accidentally found this thread (thanks to the Google! ) and thought you possibly may be interested in today's offer. Singlemizer is on sale during this weekend and is available for just $4.99 on the Mac App Store. You can still try the full featured trial version from our website (http://minimalisticdev.com/singlemiz...emizer.app.zip) to make a decision.
Thanks for the interest! Should you have any questions feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Delete duplicate files
I have used Singlemizer and find it easy to use and effective in its purpose.
One piece I have problems with is defining the kind of files to look for since it is not as simple as indicating ".jpg", or "nef" (Nikon). Maybe I have not dedicated enough time to understand this part.
One word of caution, be careful about which files you delete.
I ran a compare last week and deleted all duplicates found and since my iMac does not want to start, all I get is the gray apple but nothing more. My guess is that I deleted a needed file from the hard disk that was duplicated in an external disk.
I am still trying to figure out this problem and will appreciate any help.

It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files.
