Duplicate files (tab):
smart column resizing is needed
either manual or automatic
Group is huge, in relation to (what might be needed for) Name or Folder
columns should resize... to ... max width of (visible | all) items in column,
or constrained such that it doesn't result in a huge horizontal scroll "mess"
can [drive] be other then A..Z
as in can it be a UNC path or similar (i.e. something other then a single character)?
if not, [drive] column need be no wider then '[drive]'
(is drive even needed given you have Folder ?)
(should Folder be Folder or Path [or, heh, Directory] ?)
nix the Folder & Drive icons, imo
Mark by group.
Grayed out items are very difficult to read
Tools (tab) icon:
mouseover very reluctant to appear, & slow at that
(Settings icon mouseouver is only a little better)
Reset all settings:
is there a confirmation for that?
(i don't really want to try it, live
needs a better selector other then simply multiple +Add's
as in, you need to Add Add Add ... Add Add ... to get to the particular item you're wanting to add
(& then you need to X the items you have just added that you don't want to see)
(as it is, Add Add Add... will repeat itself, 3x, so you (can) have:
Title, Date, Director... Title, Date, Director... Title, Date, Director...
it took a second look to understand that Add adds a "item"
with the item being "generic", & that generic item has the dropdown where you can choose the
particular tag item you want to display/compare against
maybe if Add added a <choose> box instead of iterating through the list of allowed items?
to what "degree" do you consider Length/Time to be "equal" ?
are items simply truncated at seconds
or do you take ms / nano seconds into consideration?
will a video length 1 hr 2 min 0 sec 480 ms "equal" a video length 1 hr 2 min 0 sec 583 ms ?
Video, Match length, Tolerance:
i take it that Tolerance of say 2.sec means 0-2 seconds difference.
so videos of:
25 min 0 s 480 ms
25 min 0 s 583 ms
would compare equally with a length Tolerance of 1.sec
should default to Group:Hash, i should think
that way as files are added, dups are grouped together, automatically to be more recognizable
maybe with something like a <--- as a "newly added" indicator (new since the previous drag & drop)
Hash Tool: Size:
reading down something like that, it doesn't "compute"
iow, it needs aligning. 4 & 7, you have 2 decimal places, 10, you have 1, 456, you have none.
needs a Cancel - for times you do something, eh, stupid
like say open/drag a huge folder into it
oh, & folder means that folder - alone, not subdirectories too
so some potential saving grace there
just noting some hash times.
& yes i understand the first will always be the slowest.
& after that some data is cached.
as expected XXH (non-crypto) is the fastest.

column width resizing does not persist
Regular mode: Same file size:
Tolerance should have a checkbox.
at some point you may have entered a Tolerance, but you do not always want it in effect
& you don't what to have to manually go in & wipe out any existing number
when a checkbox to toggle its setting suffices
stopping, closing, Preview does not "release" the file.
at times, even when closed, you still hear the audio from the file.
other then "hearing", this can be seen with (Nirsoft's) OpenedFilesView
