A File Content search, Byte by Byte method, gives you the option to "First compare a data block at the end of the files".

How To Hide The Log in the Results List

How To Hide (un-show) The Log in the Results List? As it is, I run a scan, & the results pop up. In the Results List, I click the Log (button). The Log displays. All is well at that point. I've seen the Log, now I want to hide it. How? If I click Log again, like to toggle it, is simply displays it a...

Re: Slow to open when device offline

Same issue, slightly different bend... (Man, I wish I had remembered that I posted this thread before spending a lot of time trying to diagnose what was going on...) Slow to open when you have yet to access a particular network resource. So my drive/folder list has stuff like: C:\TMP \\NAS\BACKUP\ \...

Re: Problem with some Unicode characters and Case sensitivity

I still must be doing something wrong, not understanding enough. With .v2 I get 1..394 directories, 1512 items (so including subdirectories) in total, but still I'm coming up with errors. (I'm not really familiar with such things, so I'll say my system is plain-jane en-US, with whatever is defaulted...

Re: Problem with some Unicode characters and Case sensitivity

. period or a space at the end of a file or folder name Not quite sure that is "illegal". (OK, so they recommend against it.) Might be awkward to work with (like maybe needing fsutil, was it?, or using other creativity to create the file), might be that many utilities will fail when running into th...

@apsen, are you also quuzuu? 2. what is the use case for using sensitivity (other then Linux does it)? the command file I used to create test case Heh. I didn't pick up on that the 1st or 2nd look through. I "looked" & "saw" what basically looked like gibberish & I was like, OK. Only after the fact ...

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...

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?
