Ignore -^.if you include a $recycle.bin in your search
- regardless of Folder Exclusion
search is VERY slow
- regardless of Search Method
Ah, recycle.bin is not the issue.
So lets start again...
Search is VERY slow:
- Compare only files between different source folders
- Size (or Content, perhaps, not sure?)
- directory includes a large number of files (perhaps a large number of same sized files)
Other Comparison Methods are quick.
Other Search Methods are quick (again, unsure of Content).
Options & Filters are not an issue.
Code: Select all
01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - Search method: File size 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - 1.Source folder: T:\$RECYCLE.BIN (46,441 files) 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - 2.Source folder: T:\MUSIC.XXX2 (26 files) 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - 3.Source folder: W:\T\X2 (53 files) 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - Option: Compare only files between different source folders 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - Determine file count of all source folders... 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - File count: 46,467 01/08/2023 02:10:50 PM - Scan: T:\$RECYCLE.BIN
Issue here (aside from just being slow), is that I've already separated size dups [& size dups that were
in different Original Locations, at that] (as I'm almost certain that they are in fact Content dups too)
into /music.xxx2/ & /x2/ & I don't need the hashes of recycle.bin - except for those that are dup'd in
other directories, which would be MUCH quicker then hashing all 46K in recycle.bin (& purposeless).
