It only happens if CACHE is very big.

=> Similartity should show a screen "please wait" and hourglass.

The same applies if Similarity starts.

Here it takes 30s without saying anything!

better you try a CUDA compatible card.
I got a GTX460 especially for that purpose...

Bugs / Similarity shows Doubles of files that do not exist
« on: May 01, 2011, 14:19:32 »
I tried several times scans with using groups.
Now it finds 165 doublettes, but the ALL files in group2 do not exist.
The logs show that those files were not opened. I do not know why they were scanned, as they do not exist as file.
This scan took me almost a week now because several times Silarity just froze... and I had to restart.
Also I still do not know which order and configuration for the decoders is most robust.
Any idea?

Bugs / Number of files is reduced and then stops
« on: April 22, 2011, 20:12:44 »
It starts scanning, lets say 5000 files, then quickly reduces number of files to e.g. 300.
Log is telling me:
Open failed "...Dxyz.mp3", no suitable decoder
Next time I end similarity and start again it is working w/o any changes made.

Edit: Added some decoders, did not work.
Did restart Windows => worked..

well, if you go below 85% many life versions or different language versions are treated as same...
but meanwhile I use 85%. That results in 1% more findings than using 90%.

OK, but sorry to say, the help does not explain why more than one decoder is used for MP3.
Shouldn't just one do?
Anyway in the meantime I reduced and changed a lot (see picture) and this seems to work without problems till now.

Why don't you recommend those or similar settings as default?
Otherwise so many problems occour and many users just feel Similarity is too faulty?!

Yes, same problems with 1.5.4 beta

Actually the manual does not really describe the details..
How do I know which converter is doing what?
From your picture it looks like many are doing mp3?! What is the purpose?
May I change all "*" to Mp3 although I also got flac, ape, mv, ogg?

Memory is 2GB, Files approx 120.000
If it is a memory problem, shoulds similarity tell me?

in the log I get:
CIppsVector::insert:244 failed [false]
quite often
maybe it is related to it?

Hello, I've the same problem, most of the time stops after two day's calculation... very annoying..
But how did you solve it?
Where can filters like exclude .jpg be set (1.5.4 beta)?

well I was using a MSI card with Nvidia GTX460, the same card that was used for your tutorial...
I get no error and Benchmark is fine...
Also an indicator for developers: the result returns much faster than the normal calculation result...

Sometimes I get far to many results (e.g. 10000 files with 300000 results for identical files).
It looks likes that for a certain time period file comparison with "precise" returns very quickly 100% instead of really comparing the files.
Maybe it is related to CUDA?

Wishlist / Good default settings
« on: April 07, 2011, 17:30:45 »
I think the default settings are not good with premium subscription.
Best results may result from ONLY checking for PRECISE >90% and nothing else.
The same applies for auto mark files...

If I am correct please bring in that information at least in the "First Step" guide

I can't reduce the range as the automarked results are not selectable. You only can select all files including the not-to-delete-files.
But I found a workaround. MOVING files workes...
