SoftChronizer is a very easy-to-use duplicate file search
utility for many types of files, that was not exclusively designed to
keep your PDF file collection, MP3 file collection, or your collection
of pictures in order, but in fact does just that!
can reliably search for any kind of duplicate file in as many
directories as you have stated. The program uses either the highly
accurate "Byte-by-Byte" search, or the very fast "Fuzzy-Logic"
search option, which uses, among other features, — for the first time
in a duplicate file search program, — the sophisticated and
configurable "Levenshtein-Distance" algorithm
(Vladimir Iossifowitsch Lewenstein, Russian mathematician, 1965) to
detect duplicate filenames. – SoftChronizer allows you to search for
thousands of file-type combinations that you can compose by yourself as
"Quick Start Buttons" and add them to the main window. Pre-defined
buttons for PDF files, MP3 files and the most common image files, and
for a complete file-search for all file-types are already available.
default, the slightly slower but more accurate "[x] Byte-by-Byte"
search option is activated in SoftChronizer when you start the program.
– Once you remove the check mark to the byte-by-byte search, you can
also use all other options (eg. "Fuzzy-Logic"). – This we did, because
we think that you should first conduct a detailed search of the same sizeblurry looking for similar names and/or different file sizes,
such as allowing the "Fuzzy-Logic" options. – This approach may be the
easier way to handle the probably very wide range of duplicates that is
found: there only will remain not 100% matching files, that require your manual selection!
SoftChronizer supports the display of MP3 ID3 tags
(displays the bit rate, i.e. a statement about the quality of the
music, as well as the duration of a track in minutes and track- &
album name of a song), as well as displaying the image-sizes in pixels and the color-depth of
all images! – So if you see several duplicates, you quickly can decide
what picture, or which MP3 file you want to keep, or not. – The
selected files then either can be permanently deleted "in a swing",
moved into the Windows* Recycle Bin, or moved to the previously
For each button, for each control,
SoftChronizer shows you detailed help text in its status bar, at the
bottom of each window. – So SoftChronizer is – even for beginners –
beautifully simple to operate.
