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.
With Search Duplicated File, an Android smart utility app, you can locate and remove these duplicate/dupe files on your Android device easily and accurately! It will free up a lot of storage space on your Android device! And it is the first Android app used to search for duplicate/dupe files!
>>> IMPORTANT change:
Google Play Support team removed the old app because of too many keywords in the web description, so I have to added this new app with a different package name(com.needjava.findersuper), if you like this app, please download again, sorry for the inconvenience! thanks!
Hi, Google Play Support, I sent you an email, right? No respond. Why not notify me when I updated the app in 24 hours? I will correct it if you can notify me!!! Too many keywords in this web description does NOT hurt users, but your action hurt my users and me!!! The users who have old app(com.needjava.finderfree) will NEVER get the new update!!!

● 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(email@example.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.
