The Key New Features Of The Duplicate Audio Finder Tool

Filtering Duplicate Audio Files

The filtering panel provides a handy new option that makes it possible to filter folders by a phrase including wildcards. If the text “original” is entered – all the folders that contain “original” in the name will be matched. Vertical line e.g.: “copy|backup|bckp” can be used in order to specify and combine several phrases. Using the above example all the folders that contain “copy”,“backup” or “bckp” will be matched. A more sophisticated example is “b??(*)*” – it will match all folders starting with “b” followed by two characters then an opening bracket followed by one character and then a closing bracket followed by any number of characters.

The asterisk denotes that zero or more characters should be present and the question mark denotes that exactly one character should be present at that position. There are unlimited number of combinations that can be created in order to match a specific folder name. A screenshot of the new filtering window is available below:

Duplicate Music Finder User Interface And Features Improvements

Exclusion from “Auto-check” or from “Self-scan” can now be set for all folders in the list by clicking on the header of the corresponding column. The browse for folder dialog is also updated. If no folders are checked, the currently selected folder is added. This makes it easier to add a single folder to the list and saves the extra click to check it.

Every delete/move file operation that fails displays a HEX (hexadecimal) error code. That makes it easier to isolate the issue e.g. if the files is locked by another application, if the user account used to start the application does not have sufficient permissions to manipulate the file, if the file is stored on a read only media and so on. All the error codes can be found at the Duplicate MP3 Finder FAQ page

“Keep Folder Structure while moving files” is now optional. In previous versions of Audio Dedupe it was ON by default. Name conflicts in cases where there are more files with the same name from different locations that should be moved to the same backup folder are also solved. If the file “Intro.mp3” for example is moved to the same folder from multiple locations the extra copies will be moved with the name “Intro (1).mp3”, “Intro (2).mp3” and so on. While it does not make much sense if the source files are exact duplicates it is useful to preserve the source files if they are similar versions, but not 100% duplicates.

The Best Tool For Finding Similar Songs And Duplicate Music Just Got Better – Audio Dedupe 3.1.0.1

Unlike standard duplicate file finders Audio Dedupe can find similar and duplicate songs regardless of the file format. Audio Dedupe performs real audio analysis and “Listens” to the songs in order to find similarities. It can recognize exact duplicates or even remixes of the same song stored in different file formats. The tool supports plenty of file formats and will put an end to the mess in you music collention, iTunes, iPod, iPad, iPhone or other mp3 player devices. Here are some of the supported file formats: Supports MP3, MP2, MP1, MPA, WAV, OGG, AIFF, AAC, MP4, FLAC, AC3, WavPack (WV), Musepack (MPC) and Windows Media Audio (WMA) file formats.

Manage duplicates list – remove duplicate files easier

Version 3.1.0.1 provides two new features for managing the duplicates list. “Remove from List” context menu item is added that will remove the selected entries from the list. If the option “Remove groups that contain single file after move/delete” is enabled in the settings removing an item from a group that contains just two entries will automatically remove the group from the list. This option minimizes the chance of removing unique files from the library.

The other context menu item named “Remove Group from List” will remove the selected group without deleting any files.

Find duplicate songs faster

This release adds some performance improvements and provides better multithreading support. This means that the resources of a computer will be utilized better in order to provide faster performance. These improvements have higher impact on systems with multi-core CPU’s.
