Re: Perhaps it's time to support multithreading scanning.

For me the reading metadata in the image search also takes an enormous amount of time, like days.

Re: Selecting by filetype - please help

You can by marking all the files that have the extension you want to remove, then filter by group having marked files and then using the filter you have shown above.

Re: Duplicate Cleaner closes by itslef after 1 or 2 minutes

It has happened to me with some corrupted files I had. Try to start only scanning a folder and add them in small groups so you can understand what makes it crash. Staring with smaller folder will also make the scan faster and still save some progress as cache. if you can't even open it try reinstall...

Re: Perhaps it's time to support multithreading scanning.

I am fairly confident that even if sometimes multithreading can be less good in practice than what someone might think there is still a ton of speed to claim. Some tasks in general are pretty slow, like the initial file discovery, the metadata reading for pictures and the whole picture pipeline is p...

I'm using image mode and somehow the program selected the higher resolution image for deletion even if i had set "minimum image dimensions" as a criteria. Opening the window to show both images i noticed there is no resolution being displayed next to the file. I have found this issue both ...

Hashing images does not work in parallel?

I'm using the image mode to detect duplicates and I have noticed it's working on one hard drive only. I have 4 of them to scan, 1 has completed, one is scanning and the other 2 are idle :?

Re: How to speed up hash calculation?

It will probably never hit 100% for many reasons, one of them is likely that the disk is slower and cannot feed the cpu fast enogh, or that your cpu has many cores and I think the program just uses one (I have to check). However a process like this it's pretty much expected to be slow, you have to d...
