Pause option on File Manager | Delete

Pause option on File Manager Screen while Deletions are ongoing.

As is, the only options is Cancel.

Might be nice to also offer a Pause option (for those huge, long running deletes, when you don't particularly want to Cancel, just Pause, for a period of time.)

Re: renaming false positive duplicates

AllDup uses %1 and %2 as filename and file extension How/where do you do that? (I'd think what you're wanting would be better handled with a file renaming tool. There are renamers out there that can pick up on a parent directories name. Though to extract parts of that name would likely take multipl...

Help Pointers Should Remain Active

"Help Pointers", the question marks, ?, Should Remain Active even if the associated selection field is not enabled.

(For instance, in the) Search Method [tab],
if 'File name' is not selected as a 'Comparison Criteria', the Help ? for the 'File Name' dialog does box not work.

It should, regardless.

Re: select by percentage produces odd results

Thinking it is also going to depend on how the Match algorithm works. As in we may look at a set of files & say, yeah, they "match". But the algorithm looks & says, no, those files don't fit the criteria. This is found, 80% (& I imagine it would also match at a much higher % too?): https://i.postimg...

Update Check Crashes AllDup

Update Check Crashes AllDup.

Open AllDup
Help | Update


VBCCR16, Run-time error '0', OK


After that (OK-ing the OK), AllDup disappears.


AllDup 4.4.20 PE

(Looks like the issue is not new, at least there since 4.4.14.
I do not see the issue on Win10.)

Re: Slow to open when device offline

Hmm... on a faster computer now, (not networked) Win7, following my steps above, can't really say I'm seeing an issue. When I paste the path in, there is a momentary delay before it "checkmarks" itself. But it appears that opening speed is not affected, or at least not in a noticeable way. (On my sl...

Slow to open when device offline

AllDup is Slow to open when a device (a folder) in the Folder list is offline. More so when there are many such offline devices. (On my slow computer), AllDup takes about 2 seconds to open. With a single offline device, it takes about 10 seconds. With multiple offline it may take 36 seconds or more....

Re: Fail to start AllDup on Windows 10

How are you trying to start AllDup?
Desktop shortcut?

Right-click the shortcut, Properties.
What does the Target: box show?


If you browse (Windows Explorer) to wherever AllDup.exe (AllDupPortable.exe) are & click on them, will AllDup run?


What version of Win10?

Re: Ignore metadata bug

Confirmed - with that file.

Other files I looked at (not from your source link, with purposely changed IPTC data) compared as expected.

(I used IrfanView to write IPTC title to the files I modified.)

Re: "Select recursively within a given folder" doesn't seem to work

I attempted to select all duplicates within one of the Documents folder's subfolders, 1 From IBM ThinkPad -- i.e., C:\Users\[MyName]\Documents\1 From IBM ThinkPad -- trying both the button function and the menu function. No files were selected. Which particular Select function did you select; All f...

Re: Delete all duplicates from a hard drive

I'd start small. Select only a single directory, or a few directories, on each end to get a feel for how things will work out. After you've run your scan, found your dups, select a file that is on J:, then right-click context-menu, Select all files inside the folder structure of this file. A tree sh...

At what point?
As a part of the initial file search process?
As part of selection process of the results?
