Fast Duplicate File Finder 4.7.0.1 Adds Extra Flexibility By Utilizing Accessed, Modified And Created Dates

Fast Duplicate File Finder is recognized as the fastest and the most reliable and feature-rich duplicate finder on the market. Common duplicate finders compare MD5, CRC, size, dates, names and other unreliable properties in order to find duplicates which may lead to loss of data. Fast Duplicate File Finder (FDFF) performs real byte-to-byte comparison and guarantees that the identified files are 100% duplicates.

The Key New Features Of The Duplicate File Finder Tool

Filtering Duplicate Files by Accessed, Created And Modified Dates

The Created, Accessed and Modified dates are a property of every file and folder. The tool utilized only the Modified date in the past, but sometimes using the Created and Accessed dates may be necessary. Fulfilling the wish of our users we have added all the three dates in the application. The Modified, Accessed and Created dates are now listed in the results table. Of course if one does not need all those dates, they can be easily hidden in the application settings in order not to clutter the display.

The corresponding changes are applied everywhere in the application and those include the Filter Dialog, Auto Check, Quick Check and Advanced Auto Check options.

The newly added date fields are also included in the export features.

This release fixes also some bugs and provides improvements. An issue that prevented the move operation on network shares in certain cases is now fixed. An improvement in the project save/load functionality preserves the groups order. A fix for the similarity slider makes it possible to set 100% using the mouse buttons or wheel – this was possible only by typing the number manually in the past releases.

Audio Dedupe 3.7.0.1 Provides Similarity Search By ID3 Title, Artis And Album

Audio Dedupe can already find similar files saved in various file formats by performing true audio analysis that does not require any ID3 tags. It “Listens” to the audio files in order to find similarities. The tool is able to identify exact duplicates or remixes of the same song stored in various audio file formats. Support for most of the popular audio formats  is present and it is easy to organize songs in iTunes, iPod, iPad, iPhone or other mp3 player devices. Here are some of the supported file formats: MP3, MP2, MP1, MPA, WAV, OGG, AIFF, AAC, MP4, FLAC, AC3, WavPack (WV), Musepack (MPC) and Windows Media Audio (WMA) file formats.

Three New Audio Search Methods

Yes we have added three new search methods and those are search by similar or duplicate “ID3 Title”, “ID3 Artist” and “ID3 Album”. Though the current search method of Audio Dedupe does not require any ID3 tags and recognizes the similarities between the files by comparing the actual audio content, the new scan methods may be pretty useful in certain cases.

What is cool about this new feature is the fact that it finds also similar items and not just exact duplicates. For example the titles “Take The Power Back”, “Take The Power Back [Remastered]” and “Take The Power Back – Live” will all be matched as similar if the similarity level is set at 70%. This makes it easy to find different versions of the same song.
