This program is perfect for sifting through huge video libraries which may be un-organized and contain duplicates. I have a huge collection spread out over several drives which I have not been keeping organizing and this tool allow me to save tons of storage space.

The program is easy to work with, doest the job nicely and presents the found duplicates in an intuitive and easy to use fashion. The only issue I see is with the price for the expert version being out of the question for most folks.

Thanks 'irqthecat' for the feedback of the download problem with Norton Internet Security.
Symantec has validated the file, and you can now use it.
