Folder Size 4.1.0.0 – Easy Disk Cleanup Tool

The latest version of Folder Size is oriented towards performance and stability. Due to the many new features in version 4.0.0.0 and the many operating systems that Folder Size supports there were issues in certain software configurations. This release provides a lot of fixes and optimizations related to the charts and scan results. Although those issues are not present on all operating systems, installing this update is highly recommended.

Folder Size 4.0.0.0 64 Bit – Scans Larger Drives Faster And Provides New Charts

Folder Size Supports Native 64 Bit Operating systems

Folder Size 64 Bit

Freeware Folder Size 4.0.0.0 Provides Native 64 Bit OS Support And Removes Adobe Flash Requirement

Folder Size Native 64 Bit Operating Systems Support

Folder Size was already running under 64 Bit operating systems, but that had some limitations as it was a 32 Bit application. Under Windows, 32 Bit applications are limited to use 2 gigabytes of memory and though Folder Size is extremely optimized in terms of memory usage and performance that could cause a problem when scanning volumes that contain many small files. The used memory does not depend on the size of the scanned location, but on the quantity of files and folders that it contains. The 64 Bit version not only removes this limitation completely (the tool will use all the available memory on the system), but will also run faster because of the native 64 bit instructions used.

Folder Size No Longer Uses Adobe Flash Charts

While the charts in Folder Size were beautiful they used Adobe Flash. It was popular in the past and was available on almost every computer, but it has always been a potential security hole and was avoided by the majority of the system administrators and advanced users. As Folder Size is used on server systems many system administrators had to use it without the charting due to the missing Adobe Flash on the system or scan the server over the network which is much slower. As we believe that security is a serious topic we have removed the Adobe Flash usage completely. The new charts look almost identical to the old ones and maybe even better. Let us know your opinion in the comments.

Folder Size Handles Long Paths And File Names Better Than Windows Explorer

Many users do not realize that Windows has a limit of 260 characters per path including the file name and use huge names for their folders. This often is true for photo and music and other personal folders and use names like – “Photos from December 2015 – Our great vacation with Dharma and Greg and their lovely children and uncle Steve at the sunny coasts of Puerto Rico”. Of course such folder structure will cause only problems in Windows as even Windows Explorer will not properly manage paths longer than 260 characters. We have enabled Folder Size to scan and list such folders properly with few minor exceptions. Icons for very long paths can not be displayed as the Windows system does not support that and such files can not be located in Windows Explorer as it does not support them too, but the paths, files and their sizes will be properly listed inside Folder Size.

There are some extra minor improvements and fixes in this release.

Find Duplicate Photos Faster – 64 Bit Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder

Find Similar Photos Native 64 Bit OS Support

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 7.0.0.1 Even Faster Performance And Support For Larger Image Libraries

64 Bit Version

The latest version of VSDIF adds a native support for 64 Bit operating systems. While VSDIF was already running on a 64 Bit operating systems it had limitations that were applied from the Windows operating system itself – for example 32 Bit applications are limited to using only 2GB of system memory regardless of the memory available on the system. The new version can utilize all the resources of a 64 Bit operating system and perform much faster and handle larger image collections.

Preserve Group Integrity On Sort

Preserving group integrity is now optional and can be toggled in settings. This feature was enabled by default in the previous versions of the tool and was not configurable as breaking the grouping of the images may lead to confusion and the user may end up deleting all files from a group. Due to requests from our users we have made this feature optional, but it should be used carefully. Though it may be dangerous to use, it comes handy in certain cases. For example one can sort files by folder name or other property, select all items with the desired features in the list and use the context menu to check them all.

“Match full path” To Exclude Folder Names From Auto-Check

The “Match full path” option is introduced in the advanced auto-check options. In past versions only file names could be matched. Ticking the option will match the specified pattern against the entire file path which makes it easy to exclude folders with specific names or containing specified characters.

Up To 40% Faster Image Processing

The processing time of JPEG, PNG and JPEG2000 is optimized and is around 30-40% faster than before, but it can reach up to 50% in certain cases. Unfortunately this applies only to the decoding and not to the loading time which is limited by the speed of the storage where the images are located.

Fast Duplicate File Finder 5.2.0.1 – Lightning Fast 64 Bit Version

Fast Duplicate File Finder 64 Bit Version

MindGems Duplicate File Finder Just Got Better

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

High Performance 64 Bit Version

FDFF is already the fastest duplicate file finder on the market, that performs a proper duplicate scan that does not report false positive or miss duplicate files. The latest version provides support for 64 Bit operating systems making the tool even faster and capable of handling larger file lists. The installer will automatically install the proper Duplicate Finder version depending on the user’s operating system. This version also lifts the memory limit that is present in the Windows operating systems for 32 Bit applications running on a 64 Bit operating system.

Preserve group integrity on sort

While this feature was already available in the tool it was always enabled by default. What actually means “Preserve group integrity is that regardless of the column that is sorted the items from the same group would always stick together. This of course is well necessary in order not to accidentally delete all items from the same group, but in certain cases it is more convenient to sort by certain file property like path, mark all items and “check” them for move delete. After that the option can be restored back and sort the items over by preserving the group integrity.

Extremely Faster Save/Load/Export to XML on large projects

The save, load and export functionality was redesigned in order to better cope with huge file collections. The claim “extremely faster” is not over-exaggerated as the tool may perform the mentioned actions hundreds of times faster depending on the size of the corresponding list. A million files for example are loaded, exported or saved in seconds.

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.

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.

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.
