Listing Duplicates

Postby procyon82 » Wed Aug 17, 2016 3:06 am

Is there a way to list duplicate files based on name?

Also, is there a way to list duplicate files based on name and file size? I'm trying to list the same files that are in different folders.

Everything 1.4.0.713b Beta

> duplicate files based on name

dupe: function


> duplicate files based on name and file size

Combine the dupe: function with the sizedupe: function, so... dupe: sizedupe:


Now that won't be exactly what you want, but it will be pretty close.
If you sort by size, that should point out (make apparent) same name, size "duplicates".
(Sorting by size helps because there could also be duplicate named files that have different sizes.)

Note that file content is not taken into consideration.
Only at most name & size.

Also note that dupe: / sizedupe: return results based on all indexed drives - even if you have filtered for only a specific drive(s) or other criteria. So you could see a single file name that is not duplicated in the result list, but that is because you've filtered the displayed results.

Thanks! I'll give it a shot if BRU can't do this.
