Hi there :)


The Simplified Chinese localization is now available for Wise Duplicate Finder (beta).



Download link (OneDrive):




For future reference, the corresponding version for this localization was when posted..




1) The 'Keep One' button is confusing -- It invert selects multiple files if you at first 'Keep One' then 'Invert' then 'Keep One' again; such that it doesn't really only 'keep one'.

2) When the font gets larger than 8, characters in certain locations become no longer fully/properly displayed.

Проверил на WGet. Всё закачивается, ставится, запускается.

Само приложение ещё не тестировал


echo WiseDuplicateFinder
del "%~dp0WDFSetup.exe"
"%~dp0wget.exe" -cN -t5 -T15 "http://www.wisecleaner.com/soft/WDFSetup.exe" -P "%~dp0."
"%~dp0WDFSetup.exe" /VERYSILENT
del "%~dp0WDFSetup.exe"
echo =================================
echo =============THE END=============
echo =================================


PS: к слову Registry Cleaner и Disk Cleaner не работают через ключ /verysilent. А-та-та

Hi!!!   :)

  • I'm not able to translate "Match file name and size...", i.e. it is shown in English, and I can't full read it (probably because I'm using a custom scaling level).

    If possible, implements "hints" (tooltips) for all strings, for this entry.

  • If possible, the hints/tooltips should be automatically got from the related settings.

    Translators could add more words in the hints later...!

  • ButtonMinimize, ButtonMaximize, ButtonClose, ButtonRestore, don't work (English or Italian), i.e. they don't show the tooltip.
  • frmDFSettings.btnAddFolder.Hint, frmDFSettings.btnAddKey.Hint, frmDFSettings.btnOk.Hint, frmDFSettings.btnCancel.Hint, don't work (English or Italian), i.e. they don't show the tooltip.
  • Imo frmWDFMain.lblcaption.Caption should be bigger.
  • In the about window, I can't fully read "Il nostro sito web" ("Home page"): it works with all your other software (even with my own custom scaling level).

    Maybe you are using bold or a bigger font size or the entries were reduced, don't know...

If you need screenshots, or more explanations, let me know...

I have got a humongous .bak file in

C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Roaming\Wise Duplicate Finder




Why is this file still here? Why do I need it? Is the program waiting for me to close it? (a bug?) I have not touched this program in months. But this file is eating half my C-drive!! :D

Can I kill it without killing the program? Is it a search duplicate of my pc/a partition? If so, why is this program DUPLICATING files instead of just pointing to them? All my space is gone, lol..


I will not delete it if it means I kill files that should not be killed. But 12,5GB in a roaming folder= :D

Thank you for the info and reply.


I was wondering about another option since for now I don't have the time to look at every file, yet at the same time I want my space back, as well as not deleting files (because deleting can harm)


Can I move the 15GB bak file to another partition? Or does the program only look at C when looking for this backup bak?

(I could move it 2 times ofcourse :D ).

(If the program only sees C drive for this bak, maybe something for the next update, but my bet would be I can search the whole pc already :) )


Now I use file shredder to kill files. It 3x overwrites. So this 15G loses 3 points/bit. (got a WD black)

great tool! thx :)


1. Is it possible to show dates with time? (hour:minute:second, not only days)

2. is it possible to export the same columns as the application shows, and even more? (Id of group of the same files; Size in bytes; Creation date with seconds precision, not only Modification)

Thank you!


Anyway, I think (for an user that uses the free version) it would be better to open a message box saying "This feature is available in the pro version".

In the registration form, I wasn't able to use the paste function (with the right-click) and I wasn't allowed to write @ (in the email entry).

The same happened with WRC and WFH.
