CommandsIncredibly, I found room on the internet for yet another duplicate file remover. What sets this one apart is that it will make guesses about which files you want to keep based on the filename. The app tries to select the shortest, most descriptive name as the one to keep. As an example: a file with a name containing "copy of", or ".1.txt" would be considered less descriptive than one without; and a file named "lkePic.jpg" is considered less descriptive than "Lake Pictures.jpg". This way the time you spend picking the right file to keep is minimized.
The app also makes use of a speed improvement I haven't seen anywhere else: It makes an extra pass of the file list to create a 'fasthash'. The fasthash uses small samples of the file (16 kilobytes), taken from the beginning, end, and three places in the middle; then does a duplicate check based on the hash of the samples. This is very quick for large files, and it eliminates the vast majority of potential duplicates, as most files will have different samples. Most other duplicate finders omit this step, but it really speeds things up.
