CloneSpy v3.42

CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files with exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time, or location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. This can be an issue for example if you have different versions of a file and you want to find and remove the older versions. CloneSpy is able to find zero-byte files.

Note: The installer now allows you to choose between a 32 or 64-bit version of CloneSpy.

What's new?
  • Added:
    • Folders can now be scanned non-recursively, i.e., sub-folders can be ignored (see Pool frames of the Main window);
    • When moving files to a relative path, the path can now be resolved relative to a retained file (see Deletion page of the Options window);
    • Files with paths that are too long for CloneSpy to process can now be generally ignored (see Files page of the Options window).
  • Modified: The installer no longer requires administrator privileges for unpacking the portable version.
  • Fixed: Added an explanation for the formerly unknown error code 1392.

A lot of people here trying to delete multiples of the same image - I just wanted to give a shout out to Dup Detector, which is a great piece of software that does exactly that.

Dup Detector doesn't just do file-size/checksum analysis, it actually analyzes the images to find similarities. E.g. one could be black & white and the other can be color, or one can be watermarked, or one could be taken 2 seconds later because someone blinked & it'll find both and display them to you and ask which one you want to delete or if you want to keep both. You can choose how strict it is in its matching algorithm - 100% mach, 95% match etc.

You can even have it set up to automatically select which one to delete based on rules - e.g. the smaller one. Then you just approve the selection by hitting the space bar, or you can just let it do its thing automatically, or you can go full-manual mode and click the image you want to delete. Super fast way to delete duplicates and easy to use. I've used it professionally to manage large image catalogs that had a lot of duplicates of different sizes.

Unfortunately, it's not portable.

The latest version I have is 3.3.02 from July 8, 2011. You can get an earlier version from rareware.

Oh awesome. Well, it's still great software - it does one thing & does it very well.

Very Popular but sadly neglected

SourceForge currently reports (Jan2016):
16,000 downloads this single week
and over a MILLION downloads in the last year !
BUT Last updated Aug 2014

What a shame this excellent software isn't developed to its full potential
or sold to someone who will

NickR: Prefer LibreOffice's Drawing tool, which takes some getting used to but also does a bit more than Dia. It's also in active development.

Ant Renamer v2.12.0

Checker on 13 Jul 2015
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 4 Jul 2015
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Ant Renamer provides many options for the batch renaming of files and folders. The program includes the ability to change file extension, replace/insert/move strings, change case, even give files random names. The program can even rename based on date and time (great for scanned files) or using exif/mp3 tag info (making metadata the file name), or regular expressions. File renaming can be previewed before execution and changes can be added to a batch file and saved for future use.

Alternatively, Ant Renamer Portable (PortableApps.com Format, adjust drive letters and paths as you move PCs).

What's new?
  • Option (disabled by default) to consider the last "." in folder name as extension delimiter. Previous versions were always considering that a folder could have an extension, but that's commonly used.
  • When folders are renamed, the path of files in the list is updated if needed. Previous versions were giving an error as files contained by renamed folders were not found anymore.
  • "Case sensitive" option in the "Multiple string replace" action.
  • A few bugs fixed.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

There is no way to rename using multiple methods/rules at the same time. You have to use one method at a time. Also, can't preview all the files and can't undo after closing the software. So, I prefer Advanced Renamer.

Thanks GoD, for pointing to Taskix. It is portable, undemanding (1MB memory footprint) and gets the job done...

Data on 2008-05-16 18:57

Useful App for organizing taskbar buttons and system tray icons for easier access. It is not as memory friendly as Taskix but I have found that after running this for a little while its memory usage drops to just below 1,500 KB. The author comments on this in response to the second question at
http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/faq.htm
Although I am a memory (RAM) conservationist, I prefer Taskbar Shufle to Taskix because its visual effects for dragging buttons and system tray icons is simply easier on the eyes than the sudden and more eye straining transition provided by Taskix.

The link above is broken - should be http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/ for the site and http://nerdcave.webs.com/downloads/taskbar_shuffle_2.5.zip for the download. GoD: there is x64 version now (didn't try it myself...)
