Similarity may help you to gain more free space both on your hard drive as well as on your multimedia player because it has the task of looking among your music files to find those that are duplicated. To do so, it uses three techniques: content differences, ID3 tags and one with an internal algorithm just in case the first two aren't precise enough.

Remove duplicate songs and audio files

Very few people have their multimedia library totally organized, that's why Similarity, that offers support for MP3, MP2, OGG, WMA, ASF, AAC and M4A files, can help them to change this. Since it can easily read all kinds of tags (ID3v1, ID3v2, APEv2, WMA, Vorbis tags) and edit them, it will be very easy to find similarities and delete the files that are no longer necessary.

Furthermore, it integrates perfectly with the latest Microsoft operating systems and it uses DirectShow filters to know the codec of each file. On the other hand, it is capable of scanning in search of duplicates both in complete directories or full drives, on external devices and even on computers that are connected on a network.
