Czkawka v5.1.0
"Hiccup" in Polish

A simple, fast and free app to remove unnecessary files from your Windows, Mac or Linux computer.

• Written in memory-safe Rust
• Amazingly fast - due to using more or less advanced algorithms and multithreading
• Free, Open Source without ads
• Multiplatform - works on Linux, Windows, macOS, FreeBSD and many more
• Cache support - second and further scans should be much faster than the first one
• GUI frontend - uses GTK 4 framework and looks similar to FSlint
• No spying - Czkawka does not have access to the Internet, nor does it collect any user information or statistics
• Multilingual - support multiple languages like Polish, English or Italian
• Multiple tools to use:
-Duplicates - Finds duplicates based on file name, size or hash
-Empty Folders - Finds empty folders with the help of an advanced algorithm
-Big Files - Finds the provided number of the biggest files in given location
-Empty Files - Looks for empty files across the drive
-Temporary Files - Finds temporary files
-Similar Images - Finds images which are not exactly the same (different resolution, watermarks)
-Similar Videos - Looks for visually similar videos
-Same Music - Searches for music with the same artist, album etc.
-Invalid Symbolic Links - Shows symbolic links which point to non-existent files/directories
-Broken Files - Finds files that are invalid or corrupted
-Bad Extensions - Lists files whose content not match with their extension

Supported OS
