“With Gemini 2 there’s little reason to fear duplicates. It has a polished, intuitive user interface and the brains to differentiate copies from originals by testing them against nearly a dozen different parameters.

Comments and Ratings for Gemini 2: The Duplicate Finder

Gemeni 2 Does not clean drives (2.2.5)
2/2/2017 9:10:00 PM 1/5 By oh my this is bad
Gemeni 2 is nothing like the original. I really liked the original Gemeni when it first came out. I have a tendency to have many copies due to multiple back ups. Using the first Gemeni I could save a ton of space. I just ran Gemeni 2 on a 4tb drive. It claims it found 500gb, but only says it deleted 143gb. The "command I" on the drive shows no new space available. As for the rest of the files it lists, it will not clean them. Dont waste your time and money on Gemeni 2.

Only catches ˜20% of duplicates and not enough filters (2.2.5)

Gemini 2 is a huge disappointment. For $20 I expected a much better program. Rough estimate this program only catches about 20% of the duplicates in images, and worse in music. This is how bad the software is - I scanned a folder with about 10GB of images in it that I knew had a lot of duplicates - the program found 1GB. I clicked the smart clean button, and went through the similar dupes list and deleted those as well. Then I and scanned the EXACT SAME FOLDER again, and found another 300MG of duplicates. What the what? I also scanned a folder with about 100 songs in it, and I knew there were two exact duplicates in there, and the program missed them entirely. There’s also a “smart selection” feature that is flat out dumb. Instead of giving you the option up front of selecting to delete files that are older, or newer, or smaller, or larger, this “algorithm” supposedly picks up on the trends in your selection of files to delete, and asks you if you want to make this a rule. You can’t just set up a rule ahead of time, you have to wait for this suggestion window to pop up. Dumb. I’m ticked I spent $20 on this junk. Look elsewhere.

The deduplicator of my dreams (2.2.5)

Other de-duplication apps either do the job but are ugly, or look good but are completely unintuitive. Gemini is a dream come true if you’re a power user. Would more than happily rebuy this every few weeks just for the hours it saves me.

It DOES NOT remove duplicates its just a pretty app (2.2.5)

I want a refund MacPaw Inc! This does not remove duplicates. Fix the bugs and make it work like it’s supposed to.

What is going on? (2.2.5)
12/29/2016 10:09:00 PM 3/5 By Unclear..
I tried the trial version of this program. It indicated that I had almost 17 gigabytes of duplicate files, primarily music. So I bought the program for $20. It now indicates that I have almost no duplicate files. Maybe I am using it wrong; or maybe it is a scam.

Am I the only one who hates this new layout? (2.2.2)
12/26/2016 10:55:00 PM 1/5 By Mac1083
It takes much longer to scan, it’s more locked out and makes more assumptions about your choices. Seems like they tried to make it more user friendly and instead screwed those of us over who have been using it for years. It’s like a toy now when it used to be a legitimate utility.

After years of use, I find a new feature that made my day (2.2.2)
12/12/2016 11:21:00 AM 5/5 By 1stumpy
I already liked Gemini2 having used Gemini1 for years. This weekend while de-duplicating a Terabyte of overlapping backups, I just learned that I can tune the automatic selection by selecting one of the duplicates — whose path I know to be full of duplicates okay to delete — and then right-mousing so that Gemini2 asks “do you want to select duplicates also found in this folder?”. THAT feature discovery is a HUGE win for me and hence, this positive review of Gemini2

Powerful but Needy (2.2.2)
11/28/2016 7:01:00 PM 3/5 By Will It Work
As you might imagine, an app that scans and compares data files is VERY disk intensive. As long as the app is open, it automatically monitors files, and that means other apps will be slow or unresponsive. That said, this is very usable, and fairly intuitive, although a little aggressive on the deletion.

Gemini 2 (2.2.2)

Works great so far. Saves a lot of much need space.

Didn’t work as expected (2.2.2)

I used this app to remove duplicate songs in iTunes. This did not work. I paid 20$ and could have done a better job with a terminal command. =(
