sizedupe: function is really nice

sizedupe: function is really nice :-).

It's like wow!

I use a bunch of duplicate file finders, but using Everything makes it easy to weed out stuff that I might not necessarily come across otherwise.

On the video end, sizedupe:, filter Video, & sort by size.
And then to top it off you have Preview too.

And with Preview you don't even have to play the clip, just the first frame is usually enough to tell you whether you need to go further.
If first frames are the same, I send the two files to my hash program, confirm identical & away one goes.

Nice.
And who would have thought that an already great program could be so improved :-).

Thank you.

What program are you using to compare the files, if I am allowed to ask?

My go to program, for a long while now, is Hasher.

Otherwise, HashMyFiles.

Various others are out there that would be fine too.
