Duplicate MP3 Finder

Audio Dedup is released packed with new features.

The option to automatically log-off, shutdown, hibernate or stand-by the system after scan is finished will let you leave large scans overnight. After Audio Dedupe completes its work the project will be autosaved in <My Documents>\AudioDedupe_AutoSave.adpf and you can check the results on the next morning.

A grid popup menu item Properties is added and will show windows explorer file properties window.

We have added new Auto Check option to mark “Files with newer file dates”. This may be useful if you are editing your files and you would like to keep the most recent version that you have on your system.

A new option “Show user checked files in bold color” will let you easier distinguish the files that you have checked manually. If you are reviewing all the groups in the list manually it is handy also to track your progress.

One of the handy new features is the enhanced browse for folder dialog. You can now add multiple folders simultaneously. Just mark the folders that you would like to be scanned by ticking the check box near the folder name and click the OK button.

Project modified status in program caption is now updated correctly.

In addition to all the new format and fixes we have provided a new Audio Dedupe Corportate version that supports command line options and can output the results in a file.

Command-Line Parameters Usage: (Available only in Corporate Version)

AudioDedupe.exe -src_list <srclistfilename> -target_list <targetfilename> -log <logfilename> -s <similarity> -db <dbfilename> [-cachenames]

-src_list <srclistfilename> – specifies a plain text file which contains file names that you want to compare against <targetfilename> files
-target_list <targetfilename> – specifies a plain text file which contains file names that you want to compare against <srclistfilename> files

Note: If you omit -target_list parameter only -src_list files will be scanned

-log <logfilename> – specifies full path file name where the log from the comparison will be saved, e.g. c:\log.txt
-s <similarity> – specifies a similarity in percents. Example: -s 70
-db <dbfilename> – specifies the cache file name to be used or created.

-cachenames – if this option is specified, the program will store file names in cache instead of files checksum

Note: Cache files store audio files information gathered during the preprocessing pass (1st pass) of the scanning process. So if you often scan the same files, using cache file speeds up considerably the preprocessing pass.
You don’t need to create the cache file. Just specify it as a parameter and the program will create it. Or if the cache file from previous scan exists the program will use it. The cache files extension is ADCF (Audio Dedupe Cache File).

Example: AudioDedupe.exe -src_list “c:\src.txt” -target_list “c:\target.txt” -log “c:\log.txt” -s 70 -db “c:\db.adcf”

This will find all audio files with similarity >= 70% and save their file names and similarity in c:\log.txt file

Note: If some of the parameters contain spaces, you must enclose them in double quotes. Example: -src_list “c:\program files\files.txt”

Sample src.txt and target.txt file contents:

C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mpc
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).ogg
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (5).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (6).mp3
C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (7).mp3

Sample log.txt file contents:

* DUPLICATES OF * : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mp3
*** DUPLICATE 1 (SIMILARITY 98) *** : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (3).mpc
* DUPLICATES OF * : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).mp3
*** DUPLICATE 1 (SIMILARITY 95) *** : C:\My Documents\MP3\Track (4).ogg
