Version 18.104.22.168 of the free Fast Duplicate File Finder is released and available for download.
The new version adds support for symbolic links in Windows 7. Among the new enhancements are the Move/Delete files, results window and other small GUI fixes. In this new release the program can delete read-only files.

The new 22.214.171.124 major release of Audio Dedupe is packed with plenty of new features.
Two new file formats are now added to the supported file formats:
APE – Monkey’s Audio
Monkey’s Audio is a file format for audio data compression. Being a lossless format, Monkey’s Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack.
Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, and/or storage requirements. A digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the Monkey’s Audio format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data. As with the FLAC and Apple Lossless format, files encoded to Monkey’s Audio are typically reduced to about half of the original size, with data transfer rates and bandwidth requirements being reduced accordingly.
TTA – True Audio
True Audio (abbreviated TTA) is a free, real-time lossless audio codec, based on adaptive prognostic filters. Also, .tta is the generic extension to filenames of audio files created by True Audio codec.
TTA performs lossless compression on multichannel 8, 16 and 24 bit data of uncompressed wav input files. The compression ratio of TTA depends on the type of music file being compressed, but after compression the size of output file will generally range between 30% – 70% of the original. TTA format supports both of ID3 v1 and ID3 v2 information tags. APEv2 tags support has been added recently.
Fast Duplicate File Finder 126.96.36.199 is available for download. In the new version you can pause and continue the scan process. The duplicates list can now be customized via the new tab in the options. You can choose which columns to be visible and which not.

Hints in the filter dialog will display the full folder location if it doesn’t fit in the “Don’t Scan Folders” box. The improved folder selection dialog will let you select multiple folders simultaneously. The preview window has a lot of improvements and now uses Media Player 9 to preview video files.

The newest version of Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder comes with new features and comparison methods that add up to its power. Now you can compare also files other than graphics using different detection methods like comparing the file content using CRC, file names, file dates etc. A handy new feature that allows you to move duplicate images to a certain folder is also available. The improvements applied to the graphical user interface give you additional information and easy access to the most commonly used settings in the options dialog. Take a look at the What’s New section of the product for the full list of the new features and fixes.
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. It compares the content of your images rather than the names or sizes. It can find similar images even if they are stored in different file formats and sizes. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder is so advanced that it can detect similarity in a picture of a person shot from two different close to each other angles. 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.
