Find Duplicate Files With Fast Duplicate File Finder 4.1.0.1

Version 4.0.0.1 of The Popular Fast Duplicate File Finder Is Released

This new release provides some fixes and two new features. There are two new context menu items in the results list.

Find Duplicate Files Free

Free Duplicate Finder

The first one “Remove from List…” will remove the selected items from the list. After the remove operation if the group contains only one item it will be automatically removed if the option “Remove from list groups containing single file after move/delete”. This handy new feature can be used to remove items that should be kept from the list. Please note that this feature removes just the item from the list – not the actual file.

The other option is  “Remove Group from List…”. Using the feature will remove the entire group to which the selected item(s) belongs. Multiple items can be selected and removed at once.

The fixes include a modification that enabled the tool to load projects with older file formats. Deleting large amounts of files is optimized in this release and handled better and faster. An issue that prevented the program form showing results when using vertically rotated desktops is now removed. Associated file icons are now retrieved in faster and safer.

VSDIF 5 – Duplicate Photo Finder Adds Unicode Support and EXIF Information

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.0.0.1 is Released

We are proud to announce that version 5.0.0.1 of the award-winning Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder application is now released and available for download. There are plenty of new features and major changes in this version of the tool.

VSDIF now adds full support for UNICODE file names. What this mean is that the application can handle file names in any alphabet simultaneously. Older versions of the application could handle file name only in two alphabets at the same time.

There is a huge performance improvement in the comparison phase where the application now utilizes all the cores of a CPU. This means that on Intel i5 CPU with 4 cores that phase will run at least 4 times faster.

There is a new EXIF information panel added to the right of the results list. This panel will display the EXIF data for the currently selected image in the list. The folders and scan settings panel provide a collapse feature in order to make room for the new EXIF panel while reviewing the results.

An extra option in the auto-check panel provides features to select files with newer dates.

Improvements to the preview panel are applied too. The “First in group” image is now updated when the list is sorted. There is an option to ALT-Click an image from the results list in order to update the “First in group” image.

Improved folders list – added display of the Exclude From Auto-check and Exclude From Self-scan features. As you already know these handy features make it possible to compare two or more folders against each other and also select a “source” folder in order to exclude the items inside from auto-check.

There are plenty of other small fixes and GUI improvements. Click here to find the complete list of changes in VSDIF 5.0.0.1

Duplicate Image Finder – Outstanding Performance and Windows 8 Support

Fstest Duplicate Image Finder

Fastest Duplicate Image Finder

Search for Duplicate Images Faster Than Ever

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1 is now Windows 8 certified. The application utilizes a new cache system that provides immense speed improvement in the pre-processing stage. The improvement can be up to 1000 (no it is not a typo – thousand times)  faster depending on the count of images. Using the new cache system VSDIF can now pre-process 10,000 images in a second. It is strongly recommended to use the new cache system as consequential scans of an image library will be extremely fast.

The best thing regarding the new cache is the fact that it also detects modified files. This means that a file which was cached in a previous scan and has been modified will be identified and re-processed. This ensures that the duplicate image finder will use the latest version of every file even when using the cache system. The new cache system is available also for the “Image Search” feature and will work equally fast. Old cache files were designed for slow storage and computers and are no longer supported.

In addition to the options that were available for excluding files, the improvements in the filtering options now allow to include files based on various criteria. Here are the filtering options:

There is a new option “Check All Except First in Group” in the Auto-check feature.  An  updated browse for folder dialog can be used to navigate to a folder that is pasted from the clipboard. There is a huge speed improvement when loading large project files. The entire change log can be found here.

Do not forget to check also the free Duplicate File Finder, Duplicate MP3 Finder and Folder Size tools that will help with the disk cleanup process.

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.0.0.1 – Enhanced DICOM images support

Duplicate Image Finder

Duplicate Image Finder

A new major release of Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.0.0.1 is available for download.  Using the Pause/Resume functionality you can temporarily stop VSDIF in order to perform some tasks and later resume the scan. A Quick Check/Uncheck functionality allows you to check/uncheck files by their folder, extension, file size, file date, etc. You can now add/remove multiple folders at once in the filter dialog. A new option “Quick load images” is added, which was until now always on.  If you have some strange results showing absolutely different images as duplicates, then turn this option off. This issue is caused by damaged images that can not be properly loaded when “Quick load images” option is enabled. An enhanced DICOM images support is added. This release also includes  other small bug fixes and GUI improvements.

Find Similar And Duplicate HDPhoto files – JPEG XR and Windows Media Photo (*.hdp; *.wdp; *.jxr)

Duplicate Image Finder

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 3.8.0.1 is released packed with new features and improvements. The new HDPhoto file format (also known as JPEG XR and Windows Media Photo ) is now supported. A better browse for folder dialog lets you choose several folders simultaneously. There is a new option that can be enabled and will remove the groups that contain only one file after manual delete/move operation from the list. The user checked files can now be displayed using bold formatted font style. A new tab in the options determines which columns should be visible in the results grid. A warning message is now displayed if you try to uncheck all images in a selection where you had manually checked items. Please check the “What’s New” section below for a complete list of the new features and fixes.

Below is a description of the HDPhoto file format:


HD Photo is a new file format for continuous-tone still images that surpasses the limitations of existing image formats. HD Photo supports a wide range of features including:

• Multiple color formats for display or print
• Fixed or floating point high dynamic range image encoding
• Lossless or high quality lossy compression
• Extremely efficient decoding for multiple resolutions and sub-regions
• Minimal overhead for format conversion or transformations during decode

HD Photo is the new name for Windows Media Photo. Both names refer to the exact same file format. The Windows Media Photo name is still used to describe the implementation of HD Photo in Microsoft Windows products.

HD Photo is used in XML Paper Specification (XPS) to deliver a lightweight, high performance algorithm with a small memory footprint that enables practical, in-device encoding and decoding. It delivers compression quality comparable with JPEG-2000 and more than twice the quality of JPEG.

Most technologies in the JPEG XR Standard are based on the HD Photo file format. The JPEG XR Standard is also known as the ISO/IEC Standard 29199-2 and as the ITU-T Recommendation T.832.

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will be released soon. This is an innovative new tool that allows you to easily find duplicate images. This is not a simple tool that will compare the files by name, size or date. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder uses complex algorithms to find similar images in a way that a human does.

Of course the tools gives you the ability also to double check the similar images before deleting them giving you a list with similar images and a full sized preview. The tool will save you many hours of work that you would otherwise spend on checking the images by hand and will save you huge amount of disk space that you would otherwise waste storing duplicate information.
