Freeware Folder Size 3.7.0.0 – Save Valuable Disk Space

This new release of Folder Size provides a lot of new features and improvements. Some requested by YOU – our valuable customers some designed to make things easier and clearer.

Longest Paths And File Names Report

As the name suggests this report sorts all files in a folder and all its sub-folders by path length. This makes it easy to identify long paths that may cause problems during data migration and backup processes. Long paths may cause issues also with the system and certain applications. Though the recommended path size in Windows should not exceed 260 characters there are certain cases where creating such paths is possible. Of course such paths cause issues at a later stage when accessed. The new report makes it easy to identify and fix those long paths.

  • Export Details View option in file menu
  • Optional thousands separator
  • Loaded/saved project name is displayed in the File Menu
  • The cell text is displayed in a hint for items that do not fit in the current column size – was missing for Largest/Oldest reports
  • Double-click in drives list scans the selected drive

A fix for the settings file that could not be saved in rare cases is now applied.

Audio Dedupe 4.0.0.1 Improves Similarity Search By ID3 Title, Artis And Album By Adding Support For Protected M4P And M4R Audio Files

Audio Dedupe can find similar files saved in various file formats by performing true audio analysis that does not require any ID3 tags. The tool will “Listen” to the audio files in order to find similarities in the audio content itself. Exact duplicates or remixes of the same song stored in various audio file formats can be easily identified by the software. 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.

The results grid now also shows information for protected M4P and M4R files (bitrate, sample rate, etc.)

Option “Preserve group integrity on sort”

This new option was always ON in the past releases and now it can be disabled in settings. This allows sorting by any property without keeping the grouped files together. This option should be used with caution.

Extended Preview tab with options to Copy/Paste standard audio tags between files

This is particularly useful if a song with a lower quality has better ID3 tags that should be preserved. The tags can now be easily copied to the song with the higher quality.

Fast Duplicate File Finder 5.0.0.1 is released.

Find Duplicate Files Free

Free Duplicate File Finder

Fast Duplicate File Finder 5.0.0.1 Packed With New Features And Improvements

Fast Duplicate File Finder is recognized as the the fastest and the most reliable duplicate finder on the market. Any tool that claims faster performance compares MD5, CRC, size, dates, names or other unreliable properties which may lead to incorrect results and loss of valuable data. Fast Duplicate File Finder (FDFF) performs real byte-to-byte comparison and guarantees that the identified files are 100% duplicates. If a tool finds more duplicates than FDFF that is not a sign of better performance – it is a sign of poor detection algorithm and one should really check the results provided by such tools deeper with a proper DIFF tool or a HEX editor.

New Duplicate Finder Features

Exclude Folders or Subfolders From Auto-Check

A new feature in the “Advanced auto-check” options – “Match full path” makes it possible to exclude multiple folder names from the auto-check feature by specifying patterns with wildcards or folder names. While there is an option to exclude a folder from auto-check in the folders list, the new feature provides a more flexible way of doing that. Also the new option makes it possible to specify subfolder names that are not listed in the folders list. Multiple patterns or folder names can be specified by separating them with a vertical line ( Symbol: | ).

Backup Duplicate Files

While the main goal of a duplicate finder is to remove duplicates there are certain cases where duplicates should be intentionally copied/duplicated. These usually are required for backup/sync purposes. The new option “Copy checked files” helps exactly in such cases.

Additional improvements in the Copy/Move/Delete panel make it easier to read and configure.

A list of all the new features can be found on the Duplicate File Finder’s What’s new page.

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder (VSDIF) 6.7.0.1 – Released

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 6.7.0.1 Adds New Features and Fixes Network Locations Support

Auto-check Images With Larger File Size

The name of the feature is quite self-explanatory – it will mark the files with the larger file size leaving the smallest unmarked. While most user would prefer to keep the larger files as they generally should be the ones with the best quality, there are cases where such option is needed. For example converting a PNG image to BMP will only result in a larger file size while the quality would be the same. In such cases keeping the larger files will be just waste of valuable disk space.

Backup Similar Imaged – Copy Checked Files

The Move/Delete panel is now reorganized and includes also a COPY option. While VSDIF is designed to get rid of duplicate or similar photos this option might come handy for backups and folder synchronizations.

Duplicate Photo Finder Fixes – Network Access and Permission Issues

The latest version adds a fix for incorrectly reported network location size which prevented the move/copy operations. It also includes detailed error report in case of permissions issues. This will provide more information if one tries to set an inaccessible path for the cache location which was causing the application to list zero results.

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 6.4.0.1 Detects Similar Photos Even if Frames or Borders Are Added

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 6.4.0.1 Brings New Features For The Holidays – Find Similar Photos Even if Some Of Them Have Borders/Frames And The Others No

Two major new features are added to VSDIF – an option for detecting similar photos with borders/frames and an auto-check feature for selecting images with shorter file names.

Auto-check Images With Shorter File Names

The name of the feature is quite self-explanatory – it will mark the files with the shortest file names first leaving the one with the longest name unmarked. Some users prefer to rename their photos by adding descriptive file names and this feature helps exactly in such cases. One ca easily remove the files that are not renamed as those are usually with short file names generated automatically by the camera. VSDIF already has an option to auto-mark files with longer file names for cases where the user wants to remove duplicate copies that usually are named COPY (X) of….

Detect Similar Images With Solid Borders

While this new feature is not a miracle and it may fail with multi-color complex frames that alter the appearance of the image completely, it does quite a good job when the word comes for simple frames and borders. It comes handy also in cases where the photos are scanned – this process usually generates extra borders around the images. As this new feature is not resource-intensive it is enabled by default in the application settings. Though it will not make noticeable difference in terms of performance for medium-sized image libraries it can be turned off in the application settings if one intends to compare large quantities of photos that are known not to include borders. The feature also helps to detect images that are saved or captured from the web and usually include part of the background.
