Re: Disabling quick-hashes

I'm not seeing anything about "quick hashes", only whether hashes are cached or not? (And not know quite how the hashes work), to me it would seem that if the hash for a file has been cached, once, then that file need not be hashed again (unless it has "changed" [with whatever cr...

Re: Color of selected rows should be translucent

Re: Hash calculation failed - how to retry

What hash algorithm are you using?

Re: Deleting files really slow

@al, To confirm, you are not deleting to (Windows) Recycle Bin. OK, then tell us about your external USB drive. Some have their "own" recycle bins. Like I've got an external Synology (NAS) drive (not NTFS or FAT...). With that, deleted files do not delete to any (Windows) Recycle Bin, but ...

Win7, non-"Aero" (in case that matters). Grayed out checkboxes are very difficult to read. https://i.postimg.cc/Tp8wyZWz/Duplicate-Cleaner-5-selection-assistant-cannot-read-grayed-out-items.png Dropdown lists are very hard to read the highlighted item. https://i.postimg.cc/F1HbWkWr/Duplica...
