If you're like many Android users, your device's mobile SD card contains some unnecessary duplicate/dupe files that may take up a lot of space: mp3 files with different names, for example, or redundant backups made by the device's backup assistant, or many copies of android app with random names but the same content, it's difficult to distinguish them one by one.

>>> Q&A:

● Why do I need this app?
When you repeat download a file from network, or repeat receive a file using Bluetooth, or copy a file to another folder but forget to delete the original, duplicates is produced. The duplicates occupy a lot of Android storage space, it will slow down your file searching speed and prevent you from downloading more Android apps or MP3s.

● How to use?
Step 1. Specify folders to search for(Optional).
Step 2. Specify file extension and/or size limit in "Settings"(Optional).
Step 3. Click "Search" or "OneClick" button.
Step 4. After a search is complete, select unnecessary files for each result group.
Step 5. Delete the selected files.

● What is OneClick?
OneClick is an operation that help you to do search and selection, it does not delete, so after this operation is complete, please check search results carefully, then do deletion operation by clicking on the "Delete Selected Files" button.

● Can't see external SD card?
External SD card no file or mounted as a subfolder of internal. Send /system/etc/vold.fstab or /proc/mounts file to me. Because Android 4.3 removed the vold.fstab, if you have Android 4.3 device, please send your /proc/mounts file to me(needjava1980@gmail.com), thank you!

● Why is the searching so slow?
Try only search internal SD card, it should be fast. Most of the external SD cards has very poor read/write speed on Android device, or it has too many file fragments. To get more details, please search "SD card speed slow" on the internet.

>>> Known issues:

Crash caused by OutOfMemory, if you have too many files to search, it may cause OutOfMemory crash, to avoid this issue, please use file size filter in settings.

    Installed just wanting to get rid of duplicate songs. When I selected songs said songs did not exist or card not mounted. WTF Why would it find songs that don't exist!
