General / Re: How to 'undo' clear' function
« on: October 15, 2017, 23:26:54 »
Unfortunately, no, i can't be undone.
You can start scan again it speeds up by using caches, Similarity doesn't decode cached files again. And try to use "General optimization" it speeds up significantly.

General / Re: Never Mark Songs From Different Albums as Duplicates
« on: October 06, 2017, 00:25:23 »
This feature removed from main settings (as it's rarely used), it now available via JavaScript file, see "scan-with-restrictions.js" file

Please read Tutorial

Similarity has no functions to make symbolic links. We think about this feature in future.

General / Re: What happened to "Rearrange Groups"?
« on: August 28, 2017, 22:31:31 »
This feature not needed anymore, it's as designed for old grouping mode. New mode is supergroups (flat grouping can be enabled in Options). More details: http://www.similarityapp.com/forum/index.php?topic=1514.0

6
You can use JavaScript to mark files or auto-mark dialog (but disable all algorithms except Precise).

7
Algorithm is heuristic, we need your problem file to analysis. Please send it yo our email: support@similarityapp.com

General / Re: Change cache location?
« on: August 28, 2017, 22:25:50 »
Can you just move Similarity to cache folder and launch in portable mode "-portable"?

Bugs / Re: "Move Marked" doesn't work, Nothing does work!

Sorry for the delay.
Please, check permissions on your files, Simialrity can't move them because lack of permissions.

News / Version 2.3.1 released
« on: August 28, 2017, 00:32:24 »
Download (Windows 32-bit version)

Download (Windows 64-bit version)

Changes list:
  • This version contains new global optimization algorithm which increase scanning speed drammatically. It's specially designed for users with collection containg 5000 files and more, for smaller number of files it has no effect, even scans slower.

    Normal scanning of Similarity has N^2 complexity, new algorithm has N complexity (linear). Example if scanning N files took T min, scanning 10 times more files with old methods take 100 times more time, but with new one only 10 times more. And this is without need of duration check.

    You need manually enable this optimization to take effect


    Scanning takes 2 steps (fills percent bar two times): first indexing (no duplicates shown), second comparing (duplicates filled).

    Know limitations:
    - Algorithm cannot be continued after exit and restart of program, you need to restart it.
    - Disables image comparision.
    - No old content algorithm (it's no needed).

    Available in Premium version only

  • Max.Freq. search algorithm improvments
  • Compare algorithms optimization
  • Integrity check
  • Minor fixes

yes we release it on Mac too, but I can't tell the exact time of release.

News / Beta version 2.3.0
« on: March 03, 2017, 16:13:54 »
Similarity 2.3.0 build 2300

Download (32/64-bit Windows)

This version contains new global optimization algorithm which increase scanning speed drammatically. It's specially designed for users with collection containg more 5000 files, for smaller number of files it does has no effect, even scans slower.

On Intel I7-2600 CPU scanning 60000 audio files, previous version of Similarity with default settings took 12h 50min, new version with general optimization took 2h 32min. Also new algorithm found for 100 duplicates more, because no duration check limitation. For more files this new version scans even faster, because it's complexity is linear time, while old method complexity is squared.

You need manually enable this optimization to take effect


Scanning take 2 stages (fills percent bar two times): first indexing (no duplicates shown), second comparing (duplicates filled).

Know limitations:
  • Algorithm is still in beta stage, not optimized very well.
  • Algorithm cannot be continued after exit and restart of program, you need to restart it.
  • Disables image comparision.
  • Ignores user setting.
  • Uses modified version of 'Precise' algorithm (doesn't matches with current version).
  • No old content algorithm. In the content score field shown raw score of indexing algorithm (shown for debug purpose only), can be easly ignored.

And we planning to end support of Windows XP in next version. If you need such support please write us email at support@similarityapp.com

News / Version 2.2.0 released
« on: October 02, 2016, 01:56:37 »
Download (Windows 32-bit version)

Download (Windows 64-bit version)

Download (Mac OSX)

Changes list:
  • New correct algorithm of Max.Freq. in Analysis


  • Fixed bitrate field
    It's uses file size and duration analytically
  • Fixed memory allocation in JavaScripts
    Scripts can scan/analyse huge amount of files (approx. limit 100000 files) without any problems
  • New work queue for multiprocessor tasks
  • Updated JavaScript engine (V8)
  • Minor fixes

Please, send this file to us, I think the problem with VBR coding method.

Some decoders can't give exact duration of audio file, ang give some approximation.Can you send this problematic file to our email to analyse.
