Thanks for creating this really helpful tool, I have been looking for something like this for a long time!
GUI is nice and it works great for scanning and checking files via existing SFVs, but I am having problems with the update feature. Unless I am using it incorrectly, this is the problem I face...
I have a folder of pictures, with a single .sfv file for checking (verify.sfv, created with your software). This loads and checks the folder contents fine, but after I add new pictures I want to update the SFV to include them also. So... first I "add folders to list" and select the photo folder, and then "load checksum file" and select the corresponding existing verify.sfv.
I expected it to simply add the new photos to the main window since the existing files were accounted for... But it treats everything in the verify.sfv list as a "newly added file"... So, the "verify newly added files only" option doesn't not work properly in this case.... It it no quicker than creating an entire SFV again due to the duplicate entries!
I am with Deozaan on this, any chance of incorporating "trim duplicates" option? Could you implement this easily with the information referenced in file paths column? I.e if an absolute file path appears more than once, the duplicates are deleted. This would make updating SFVs far easier and would be a most welcome feature - I've yet to find another tool that offers such flexibility as yours.
