Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 188.8.131.52 is Released And Available For Download
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder is an innovative tool that can recognize similar photos even if they are stored in different file format. It can compare a jpg and a RAW file for example – something that a standard duplicate file finder can not do.
This new release provides mainly fixes related to command line usage and Corporate version, but it provides also a handy new feature related to the move operation.
As many of our customers asked for this we have made the feature “Keep folder structure” while moving files optional. Previous versions of VSDIF was recreating the source folder structure in the target location. This is handy as you can:
- Restore files back to the original places easily
- There could be files with duplicate names that will be overwritten if moved to the same location
The new feature takes care of the second issue. If there are two or more files with the same name they will be renamed in the new location and this will be denoted in the move log. For example if there are multiple files named MyPicture.jpg they will be saved with the names MyPicture (1).jpg, MyPicture (2).jpg and so on in the target location.
Though move is necessary in certain cases we strongly recommend deleting the files to the Recycle Bin or moving them to a folder by keeping the folder structure which is the default behavior. Once you are sure that you have moved/deleted the proper files your can permanently remove them by emptying the Recycle Bin or by removing them from the folder where they were moved.
In case of an error the Recycle Bin provides a restore option that will restore the files to their original locations. Same can be done if the folder structure is preserved and files are moved – just copying the contents of the folder to the root of the corresponding drive will restore everything back to its original state.
