PrimeFile provides you with an easy solution to find and remove duplicate files. The tool supports scanning the entire computer drive or only specific folders, as well as any storage device connected to your Mac. Therefore, you are able to regain the wasted space taken by duplicates so your system can perform better and finish the running tasks in good conditions.

The program has a simple and intuitive interface. Adding the folders you wish to scan is done easily, either by drag-and-drop or by browsing your computer from within the application. Then, you just need to enable the scan process and wait for the results. While the scan operation is in progress, the tool offers real-time information about the number of scanned files and an animated chart with pastel-colored vertical bars that correspond to the type of files the program identifies.

For most accurate results, you can enter the Preferences menu in order to set a series of scan rules. Therefore, you can define the minimal file size to search for, exclude specific folders, files, and extension from scanning, and determine auto-selection rules. Once the scan ends, you have the ability to check the results in the chart-based overview mode, as a list supporting multiple search filters, or by file type. In addition, you have the chance to preview and take a quick look to every file.

To sum up, PrimeFile is a smart duplicate file identifier that allows you to move unwanted duplicates to Trash or to delete them permanently. Once the files are removed, you are informed about the size of the regained storage space.
