(Shift+)F3 to jump through results list

It would be very handy if pressing F3 would jump to the next match in the results list and Shift+F3 jump to the previous match. It would be much easier than constantly moving the mouse up to click the magnifying-glass icon in the toolbar, then moving it back to the search results. http://i.imgur.com...

Re: AllDup supports only 25 drive letters

With next the update AllDup will add all available drive letters no matter if AllDup can determine the drive type or not. Okay; I’ll test it then. (Though I don’t think the type is the problem because it happens regardless of the type. It happens with USB drives, CD/DVD drives, hard-drive partition...

Re: AllDup supports only 25 drive letters

It’s probably not an if ; it’s probably an off-by-one error in a for loop. For example: drives=GetDriveList(); for (int i=1; i<drives.length(); i++) { SourceList.Add(drives[i-1]); } In this example, the for loop starts at 1 and compensates by subtracting 1 from the index, but also uses < in the cond...

AllDup supports only 25 drive letters

I finally figured out why AllDup never lists my Z: partition: because it only supports 25 drive letters. Last week, I removed the B: letter assigned to a partition and forgot to re-assign it. Today, I ran AllDup and noticed that Z: was listed in the drive list, but then I noticed that B: was not. I ...

Do you want to test the new functions?
Sure, I’d be happy to.

Re: File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

Ah okay, you’re using a regex library to handle it; that explains the brackets (though “#” isn’t normally part of regex, and other regex characters like “{” / “}” seem to work just fine). Well then I suppose one option could be to automatically escape and unescape them so that the user doesn’t have ...

Re: Different Source-Folder Option is Inefficient

Yes, it is. Thanks for the notice. Unfortunately he says that the algorithm can’t (currently) filter the list without increasing the scan time. That seems questionable because it only requires a few simple string comparisons to check the source of the two files being compared which is much less work...

Re: Different Source-Folder Option is Inefficient

For example, during the week when I use a laptop at work, I save files I download to a flash-drive. On the weekends, I put the flash-drive on my desktop computer and run a scan to check for anything that I already have. I use the Different Source-Folders option so that AllDup will only check the new...

Re: File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

Okay, I edited the config file to replace all “#” with “[#]”. It didn’t work. I realized that I have to escape the “[” and “]” in my folder names as well which was a huge pain because they are part of the escape sequence itself, so I had to find a character that was not used and use that as a tempor...

Re: File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

PATH: C:\Data\Programming\C#\Assemblies FILTER: C:\Data\Programming\C[#]\Assemblies I’ll try that the next time I have my main drive available. Thanks. Of course since the Add Path to File/Folder Filter commands don’t do it for you automatically, that work-around would have to be done manually (not...

Re: File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

Activate the filter option " Ignore wildcards in filter text (treat like normal text) " if you use wildcards (*, # and ?) at the filter text. See help file. Ah, I see; AllDup treats “#” (and “[” and “]”) as wildcards. I did not realize that, I thought it only used the standard DOS/Windows wildcards...

Re: File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

I did some tests and got a couple of important results: If the file or folder contains a “ # ” in the name, then adding that to the filter will not work. The function that processes the filters has a problem with the “#” character If you use a wildcard (e.g., “*”) in a filter, it could crash AllDup ...

:? Then maybe it’s something else, or something more complex like a combination of factors.

I’ll try to do some more experiments to figure it out.

It had one when I first made the post, but it seems to have been stripped when I tried to use the Preview function (which didn’t work). I tried adding one again (you can see the post is edited), but it won’t take it. An admin has to do it because this version of phpBB seem to have a bug (it shouldn’...

File and Folder Filters Sometimes Do Not Work

There’s some files and folders that I know are duplicates and want to exclude from the search. I have already added them to the filter(s), but they keep showing up in the search results anyway, and I have to manually remove them every time. I think I figured out why. Looking at the search results, i...
