Duplicate Photo Finder

Duplicate Photo Finder

Version 4.2.0.1 of Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder comes with important new features and fixes. One of the important new features is the support for symbolic links in Windows 7. Now Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will work flawlessly under Windows 7.

There is a new option to set the cache folder location. This is extremely useful if you have a large collection of photos and you are lacking space on your system drive.

A lot of GUI improvements and fixes are also available. You can now set each column’s auto-size attribute individually, some issues with column sizing and splitter were also fixed.

An enhanced Move/Delete files window will report details for the operation. If files were in use during the delete operation and they could not be moved/deleted they will be listed so that you can free the files and retry the delete operation.

The program will check for Recycle Bin size and show a warning if you want to delete the files to Recycle Bin and there is not enough space available. Automatic delete can now also delete read-only files.

Find Duplicate APE (Monkey’s Audio) and TTA (True Audio) Files

Duplicate MP3 Finder

Duplicate MP3 Finder

The new 2.0.0.1 major release of Audio Dedupe is packed with plenty of new features.

Two new file formats are now added to the supported file formats:

APE – Monkey’s Audio

Monkey’s Audio is a file format for audio data compression. Being a lossless format, Monkey’s Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack.
Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, and/or storage requirements. A digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the Monkey’s Audio format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. As with the FLAC and Apple Lossless format, files encoded to Monkey’s Audio are typically reduced to about half of the original size,[1] with data transfer rates and bandwidth requirements being reduced accordingly.

TTA – True Audio

True Audio (abbreviated TTA) is a free, real-time lossless audio codec, based on adaptive prognostic filters. Also, .tta is the generic extension to filenames  of audio files created by True Audio codec.
TTA performs lossless compression on multichannel 8, 16 and 24 bit data of uncompressed wav  input files. The compression ratio of TTA depends on the type of music file being compressed, but after compression the size of output file will generally range between 30% – 70% of the original. TTA format supports both of ID3  v1 and ID3 v2 information tags. APEv2 tags support has been added recently.
