Introducing Duplicates Monitor. A new powerful feature that helps Gemini 2 not only find duplicates that are already on your Mac, but also look out for new ones. Preventing future cluttering. Gemini 2 detects duplicate and similar files in every corner of your Mac, including Photos, Music, and even external drives. And helps you free up tons of disk space. Gemini 2: The Duplicate File Finder is brought to you by the team behind CleanMyMac X. Removing clutter and recovering disk space are our specialty, so we made a duplicate cleaner that does both like a pro. KEY FEATURES Free up gigabytes of storage space: - Find duplicate files of any kind: pics, music, docs, you name it
 - Identify duplicate folders, too
 - Delete duplicates on external drives and network volumes
 - Monitor your Mac or separate folders for new duplicates and delete them right away Organize your photos and music: - Find duplicate photos in your Photos library
 - Detect pictures that are similar, but not identical
 - Spot iTunes and Music library duplicates 
 - Find similar music in iTunes and Music library (files that differ only by format or bit rate)
 Save time picking out duplicate files: - Trust Gemini to autoselect the copies and keep the originals intact
 - See how similar files differ with the help of handy icons
 - Add your own Smart Selection rules, like deleting the duplicates that are older
 Never lose an important file by mistake: - If you removed the wrong duplicate, put it back in a click 
 - Exclude certain files and folders from scan
 - Move duplicates to a separate folder or onto a USB drive
 - Replace copies with hardlinks to save space without deleting the files 
 Make finding duplicates less of a drag: - Enjoy the sleek space-themed design
 - Have fun with wacky achievements and ranks
 - See if you can spot the Easter Egg!
 And if you’re wondering what tech reviews say about Gemini 2, wonder no more: we’ve gathered some of them below. WHAT MAC EXPERTS SAY “I’ve been an active user of MacPaw’s Gemini software since its inception, and Gemini 2’s release today has made me fall in love with it all over again. In just the initial scan, Gemini 2 found more files and more places where I could intelligently clear and save space on my Mac.” 
- 9to5mac “If you want to clean up your Mac, but are trepidatious about digging around in your files and accidentally deleting something important, Gemini 2 has a lot to offer and makes the whole process very simple.” - 
iMore “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. It’s also much faster, especially compared to digging through thousands of files and folders the old-fashioned way.” - 
MacWorld SUBSCRIPTION AND PRICING Some features are only partially available for non-paying users and can be unlocked with a Yearly Access plan. For example, the non-paying users can delete found duplicates only manually via Reveal in Finder feature and don’t have access to Smart Cleanup.

    Filtered apps by the "Free" and this one came up. Upon download, I am then informed that I have a 3 day trial period, then must pay.....DELETED
  • Out of Memory

    Looks like the active monitoring feature uses up all application memory on Mac Mini M1. Doesn't seem to be a factor if that mode isn't used. rdh
  • Stop running and sniffing my Mac at Startup of OS!

    By Tacit-Bud
    I used to love this app. But it seems, as is with the rest of their products, it's becoming more and more bloatware than actual usable and functioning software. Please give the ability to stop the application from running at launch of OS. You are not going to get my annonomous data so stop coaxing me and everyone else into giving up their personal (non identifiable) data. Very annoying and leads me to believe you have other nefarious motives which are not geared for my macs best interest.
  • must pay to use

    waste of time and energy.
  • Large data difficulty

    By furnacefyre
    Added a star because the Developer responded very quickly (original 1 star). Will try this again...
  • This app won't let go

    By Jeffery Troutt
    I've used this app intermittenly, and it performed well, though I did not have enough choices, and it required hours of sifting through duplictates to make sure it got the right one. Now, it continutally starts, places itself in my menu bar, and it a complete annoyance. Everytime I restart, I have to rid myself of this pest. After I finish writing this, I will uninstall Gemini 2 and never run it again. Other apps do the job for less and don't take over your Mac.
  • Waste of time

    By dissapointed_user_01
    Spent hours selecting similar photos to delete only to get "Unknown Error" message. What a waste
  • Great program without but's

    By Vladyrom
    Excellent, really helpful programm. No complains. Probably a bit difficult from the beggining to understand which file to remove, but it comes with work. Thank you, guys!
  • New version of Gemini

    By 765ht4gerwcdas
    The old version was great. I need to compare individual folders and select the files I want to delete. This doesn't seem possible in the new version. It is worthless to me. I will cancel my subscription.
  • can't update

    By Purpleskye13
    I love this app. two things though - one is can't update to the current ( I am in the most current OS) two is doesn't really distinquish between my photo files that just happen to be the same file name from the camera. Takes a while to sort.
