duplicate filtering

Post by nothing » Fri Jul 19, 2013 1:14 pm

is it possible to add an option to filter duplicates (based on the filesize or/and filename)?

pretty sure it would be really handy for many users

thanks

?
Doesn't everything does that already
dupe: search for duplicated files\folders names.You just add the name and the size: the file size to limit the duplicates displayed by name and size
dupe:.gif size:>1mb
will show only duplicated gif images(same name and contains but must contains gif)that are bigger than 1mb

Or
dupe: wfn:1.gif size:>100kb
Will display duplicated files(for everything,duplicates mean same name)that the whole name is 1.gif and are bigger than 100kb

No, it doesn't.

What you meant is 'searching for dupes', what I've wanted is to filter out duplicates in the search results.

dupe:.gif size:>1mb

Well, it's handy to nuke duplicates, but sometimes on mapped network drives there are symlinks so dupes are not really dupes, they're just symlinks.

Or, for example, you search for certain mp3 files and want to include only 1 filename with certain name/size/md5sum/etc.

You could "not dupe"

!dupe:

but that would remove ALL duplicated file names, where you are looking to remove all but one (or some).

thanks, that works :)

would be nice to have an ability to filter out dupes based on some sorta checksums tho, but not a big deal.
