How CFC Duplicate File Finder Windows 10 Actually Works?

A. Select drive/folder panel allows the user to add one or more directories (folders) to the “Include To Scan” rectangular box on left. If any folder(s) is added over here, adding up any directories to the “Exclude From Scan” option will exactly have the opposite effect.

Applying “Ignore Files Smaller Than” filter makes the search process to ignore the contents which is under the specified size. “Ignore Files Larger Than” is same as the aforesaid filter but it ignores the files which are larger than the specified size. The unit of the size of the both filters can be changed along with their sizes.
