NEW: Support for doing multiple deletion. This works by selecting multiple files, and then control or right clicking “move to trash”. A confirmation dialog will ask you if you are sure you want to move these to the trash. It is highly recommended that you verify the contents of your trash before you empty it after a multiple delete.
While Liten does perform the safest possible comparison algorithm, you should be extremely cautious when deleting files. One item in particular to watch out for is deleting important system files, or application files. Only delete an item when you are very sure of why it is a duplicate.

How do I find duplicates in multiple folders?
Liten searches all sub-folders of the folder you select. To see duplicates in two separate folders, select the parent directory of the two folders you wish to search. Liten will identify duplicates regardless of their location on your Mac.
How do I delete multiple files?
First select the files you want to delete by holding CMD and clicking each file. Once you have selected the files you want to delete, right-click (ctrl+click or hold two fingers on the trackpad and click with a third) one of the selected files and select “Move to Trash.”
Does Liten search external hard drives attached to your Mac?
Liten can search all volumes/external hard drives attached to your Mac, but you must search each volume separately.
