Duplicate Partial File Finder

How many times have you downloaded a bunch of songs from Kazaa (or whatever P2P program) and had several duplicate files. If one of those files is 99% there and the other is 100% of the actual file, no current duplicate eliminator program will work. I created a program that scans for partial files and allows you to delete them. First it does a pre-scan and only scans (compares) a little bit into the file (compares by using a hash). This will result in a few errors, but saves alot of time and eliminate non duplicates from the equation and selects probable duplicates without having to go through each entire file. A second pass goes alot further into the file to ensure accuracy. It saves alot of space. Try it, on the download link.
