DoubleKiller Pro released
« on: June 06, 2007, 04:25 AM »
A new version of DoubleKiller, the premier tool for finding and deleting duplicate files, has been released:

DoubleKiller Pro has been finished and released today!
The new version brings a couple of new features and a lot of user interface enhancements and improvements in the scanning engine.

Most important changes:

- Supports scanning inside zip archives
- Catalog files: Catalogize CDs/DVDs/folders and scan the catalogues
- Considerably improved performance for scans without content comparison
- Allows scanning for any files instead of duplicates
- Files can be dragged out of the result list to applications or other folders
- Results sortable by file name length
- Can register its file types or create a "scan" entry for directories
- Customizable result list font
- Integrated uninstaller
- Fixed a bug for multiprocessor systems

The update took more time than planned, but the update periods have been extended accordingly, so this update is free for all customers.

Additional features of DoubleKiller Pro

The following list describes some of the key features that are only available since DoubleKiller Pro and not included in the free version.

    * - Multilingual interface: With freely downloadable language files the complete interface can be translated into another language
    * - Completely rewritten scanning engine: In tests with filename, date and/or size comparison DoubleKiller Pro was 70 times as fast as the free version and more, depending on the number of files compared
    * - Advanced comparison options for each of the four basic comparison criteria, e.g. to compare only a particular part of the file name or content, to allow a specified tolerance for file size or date, or to perform a byte-per-byte comparison instead of a CRC32
    * - Improved folder selection: Directories can be excluded from the scan (e.g. to scan 'C:\', but exclude 'C:\Windows') or temporarily disabled (no need to remove them from the list)
    * - A distinction between so-called fresh and library folders allows to quickly compare a small number of unknown files against a huge collection
    * - The result list can be sorted pair-by-pair or regrouped by any criterion - combined with the "check first" and "check last" buttons this allows to automatically mark e.g. the oldest or smallest files of a set for removal
    * -The feature "check by criteria" allows to check or uncheck files based on criteria like file name masks, path masks, file size or date ranges
    * - Beside moving the checked files into a specified folder or directly deleting them, you can move them into Windows' Recycle Bin from which they can easily be restored to their original location or replace the duplicates by shortcuts pointing to the remaining files
    * - Directories that have been emptied completely while removing duplicate files can be deleted automatically
    * - You can save the result list at any time and continue or review your work later
    * - Command line support: The complete process of selecting folders, scanning for duplicates and removing files can be automated
