Download 32-bit version

Download 64-bit version

Changes list:
  • Integrated audio player added, can play simulationesly several files.
    To create additional player (rather then use opened) you need hold down Ctr key and double click or Enter on file (you can also select "Play" in context menu). To move play position in all players simultaneously hold Ctrl key. To change audio playing device use Option dialog - Miscellaneous tab.


  • Updated experimental image comparing algorithm, it can find flipped/mirrored images
  • New flat grouping mode

    Files grouped in flat mode by Base File (first file in pair) - File (second file in pair). Example:
    Flat mode:


    Files grouped in Normal mode by Super group (smart group) - Base File (first file in pair) - File (second file in pair, always collapsed). This mode is default. Example:
    Normal Mode:


    To switch to flat mode, you need enable checkbox in Options (you can enable/disable it anytime).


  • New real-time autosave feature introduced, all results in tabs instantly saved to disk in "journal" mode (every step saved, even deletes, renaming, etc) This is prevent any loses if system shutdown or program killed forcefully. Autosave works in Premium version only.
  • Decoder auto-shutdown feature. After 30 sec all inactive decoder processes will shutdown, releasing all allocated resources
  • New image preview control (speed improvements and fixes)


  • New sortable fields in analysis tab (artist, album and title from tags), they doesn't shown by default, you need check them in context menu of tab view header. Added "true" numeric bitrate in "Step" field.


  • All sorting fields saved on exit and restored on start.
  • Defaults button in Options - restores default settings of current tab


  • Optimized all comparing algorithms
  • Minor fixes

Download 32-bit version

Download 64-bit version

Changes list:
  • New experimental image comparing algorithm



  • Added 4th audio comparing algorithm, specially designed for files < 30sec (ex. audio samples), shown in Precise tab.
    Files with 4th algorithm compared only with files shorter 30sec.
    Please, disable, tags comparing algorithm if you planing use this algorithm (or have such files), because most sample files have very similar file names and no tag info at all.



  • Image decoder is out of process too, as audio decoders, eliminates crashes on invalid or corrupted image files
  • Decoders can log errors
  • Slightly reduced decoder RAM usage
  • Added support of 24-bit FLAC files
  • Minor fixes

- Decoders can log errors too

- Sligtly reduced decoder RAM usage

- Minor fixes

- Added support of 24-bit FLAC files

- Added 4th audio algorithm, based on Precise algorithm, specially designed for files < 30sec (ex. audio samples), it doesn't cachable and doesn't optimized yet. The algorithm works automatically if file shorter 30 sec and shown in Precise tab, files with 4th algorithm compared only with files shorter 30sec.

Download 32-bit version

Download 64-bit version

Changes list:
  • 64 bit version released, can process huge amount of files, depends only on available RAM. 32-bit version of Similarity can use only 2 GB of memory, regardless of actual available memory, please consider using 64-bit version. We successfully checked it on 318 000 files, with all algorithms enabled.



  • Redesigned caching mechanics, view and comparing caches are same, reduces memory consumption and comparing time
  • Analysis results are cached now. From now already analyzed files, doesn't processed again, reduces analysis time
  • Audio Analysis and Duplicate results tabs are fully synchronized, if you delete/swap/rename on one tab it automatically changed on other
  • Crash dialog for 32-bit contains warning about insufficiency of memory. Most crashes what come to us is 'Out of memory' situation



  • 32-bit version has 'Handle Large Addresses' attribute. 64-bit version Windows can give such 32-bit application full 4GB of memory, not just 2GB
  • Auto-mark dialog folders contain only folders from duplicate pairs, not all sub-folders
  • Fixed issue with folder groups changing in cached files
  • Fixed issue with folder groups sorting in auto-mark dialog ('None' group worst from now)
  • Fixed issue with Power state (computer can't go to sleep mode after scanning complete)
  • Minor fixes

Warning! Incompatible with previous version of cache, to build compartability between 64-bit version and 32-bit version cache structure changed, this version clears previous one.
