Fast Duplicate File Finder 5.4.0.1 – Autocheck Shorter/Longer file names

Fast Duplicate File Finder 64 Bit Version

MindGems Duplicate File Finder New Auto-Check Features

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 Auto-Check Features

The auto-check feature in the duplicate file finder is redesigned and includes options to auto-check files with shorter or longer file names. This is really handy in cases of files with prefixes or sufixes like Copy (X) of or Filename Copy (x).ext. The tool can now mark automatically the files based on the file name length. It is possible to keep the file with the shortest name or the one with the longest.

As the list of auto-check options grows larger and larger we have now grouped them in a drop-down list. It includes:

  • Smaller File Sizes
  • Bigger File Sizes
  • Older File Dates
  • Newer File Dates
  • Shorter File Names
  • Longer File Names

More auto-check options will be added as needed.

This version also includes a fix for a crash that was caused if a damaged DNG file was previewed. A fix for “Protect system files and folders” option is applied. In some cases if the option was enabled certain sub-folders in the “USERS” folder were not included in the scan.

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.

Added two new “After Scan” options – “Save project and display results” and “Save project and close application”

The “Save project and display results” and “Save project and close application” features are handy when performing a large scan and leaving the computer unattended. These features guarantee that the results will be saved even if a power failure occur and as a result the computer shuts down or restarts. The “After Scan” options are performed as the name suggests immediately after the scan process is completed.
