Option to group similar files
« on: November 22, 2008, 06:38:18 »
This program rocks!

If I have
file1, dup11, dup12, dup13
file2, dup21, dup22, dup23

This program will report 12 duplicates, but only 6 in reality.

It will show every combination of file1/dup1* which would be 6 and also same for file2/dup2*.

It would be nice to have a final list saying

file1, dup11, dup21, dup31 are similar

instead of or in addition to saying
file1 and dup11,
file1 and dup12
dup11 and dup12
...

Thanks!

By the way, I noticed that if the file cannot be played properly by windows media player (no sound), it matches it with every other file in the folder.  However the file is able to be played by other apps like winamp/itunes etc.
