SoftChronizer is a very easy to use, fast and versatile double-file search program, that was designed for to help you to keep your private or corporate book, music or picture collection in order, as well as for other use cases.
SoftChronizer can reliably search for any type of duplicate file in a single hard drive directory (with subdirectories), or simultaneously in different folders on different drives. The program either uses the ultra-precise "Byte-by-Byte" search, or a very fast "Fuzzy-Logic" search option, which uses, among other features, -- for the first time in a duplicate file search program, -- the otherwise often used in biometric identification technologies "Levenshtein-Distance" algorithm (Vladimir Iossifowitsch Lewenstein, Russian mathematician, 1965) to detect duplicate filenames.
SoftChronizer displays MP3-ID3-Tags (displays the bit rate, i.e. a statement about the quality of the
music, as well as the duration of a track in minutes and track-/album-name of a song), as well as for images, their size in pixels and their color-depth! - So if you see several duplicates, you quickly can decide which picture, or which MP3 file you want to keep, or not. - The selected files then can be permanently deleted in a swing, moved into the Microsoft Windows Recycle Bin, or just moved to the previously specified directory. SoftChronizer lets you decide in advance, file-by-file, which of these three actions with the file are to be conducted, or if the file shall stay untouched. Folders that are empty afterwards at the source place, can be automatically removed also in one step.
For each button, for each control, SoftChronizer shows you detailed help text in its status bar, at the bottom of each window. - So SoftChronizer is - even for beginners - beautifully simple to operate.
-SoftChronizer already includes special support for MP3 files and images!
-is fully UNC-path and network compatible, and this for a low price, all inclusive!
-has built-in a highly accurate and ultra-precise "Byte-by-Byte" search function (our's is faster and don't uses outdated, unprecise and therefore unneccessary CRC32 or hash-function algorithms!)
-has built-in unique text-comparison algorithms ("Levenshtein-Distance") to find similiar files with almost the same names and different file sizes also
-provides additional file-type information in just one application: MP3 tags & image information in its result-table (displaying special information for more file-types is already planned for future releases)
-has self-configurable quick file-type selection buttons, that are automatically saved when you quit the application
-has quick, easy and extensive options to delete or move duplicate files, using a single context menu
-each file can separately be selected for to permanently erase it, or to move it (to another directory, or to the Recycle Bin)
-can "run" found files just via double-clicking (with the assigned application)
-opens, on request, the source folder of a found file
-can show the Microsoft Windows file-properties dialog for each found file
-can export all the results into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, into a simple text file, or export it to the Microsoft Windows Clipboard
-has fast search algorithms and progress display for every process
-is exceptional detailed configurable for advanced users
-is an intuitive application, which is not overburdened with controls, and therefore even for inexperienced users! - additional help text is available for each control, by "flying" over it with the mouse
