Well I didn't get to add all the features that I wanted before the release but since its the last day... well here it is! I will try to add some stuff to it in the near future.


I think our definitions are different; What I mean by duplicate is identical data, regardless of name. Though I might implement some of the stuff you mentioned in a future release ^_^


Happy New Years!
See you in 2010!

Author C-o-r-E

I have a nasty habit of having very cluttered file systems. I tend to download things like assignment PDFs, forget about them and download them again. For the reason of tidying my forest of clutter I wrote this application initially as a CLI python script. However around the same time, app103, a user here told me about NANY on IRC. I thought that I just happen to have written something that is probably useful to other people so why not join in!

DupFind is essentially that script but with a spiffy GUI. Not many people today live on the command line like myself so a nice user interface was key. For this I used the pyQt Qt bindings.

DupFind will be released as free (as in freedom) software, and will probably be GPL'd. This means you can do with it as you want as long as credit is given and it remains free.

  • Cross-Platform.
  • Simple GUI.
  • Threaded.
  • Finds all (exact) duplicates in a directory tree.
  • Fast.

Planned Features
  • Auto cleanup.
  • Concurrent scanning/hashing. (Maybe)
  • Database features.


Right now just execute (installer maybe later)

Using the Application
As of now it should be intuitive.


Known Issues
None smiley

Here is my last minute pledge to write something. Very simple idea so I won't say anything until I make the preview post. Hopefully I won't be the only one who finds it useful.

For the moment back to studying for finals!

btw app103 told me to participate tongue
