Security company Intego recently rolled out Duplicate Zapper to the Mac App Store, thus offering OS X users around the world an efficient means of zapping duplicate files that needlessly take up disk space and negatively impact Mac performance.

Intego’s Washing Machine can do a lot to boost a Mac’s performance – duplicate removal is just part of the functionality it has to offer. The aforementioned Duplicate Zapper is based on Washing Machine’s duplicate removal capabilities.


Intego, the industry leader for Mac antivirus and security, recently released a new Mac app that is called Duplicate Zapper – it is available exclusively in the Mac App Store where it is priced at $6.99. What do you get for that amount of money? Why you get a tool that scans your Mac, identifies duplicates, and then removes said duplicates.

“Duplicate file detection and cleanup is one of the most important things a user can do to keep their Mac healthy and performing well. Duplicate files seem to build up in a Mac like plaque without the user being aware of the problem. Duplicate Zapper takes a fresh approach to the task, actually comparing contents, not just time stamps and file size. It also avoids files that are critical to either OS X or installed applications so you can’t damage anything,” said Intego CEO Jeff Erwin.

Duplicate Zapper – Main Features
  • Scan the locations you want to find duplicates.
  • Select the types of duplicates that will be uncovered during the scan: folders, archives, movies, music, pictures.
  • Once the scan completes, you will be invited to select the duplicates that will be removed.
  • A report will display how much disk space you reclaimed by removing duplicates.
Duplicate removal functionality is also offered by Intego’s Washing Machine. It must be mentioned that Duplicate Zapper is based on said functionality.
