i-DeClone focuses its search effort in 6 broad categories:
Discovering such a variety of clones isn't easy but i-DeClone tries to abstract all but the essential user input and guides the average user step by step (the main audience is Average Joe, not Einstein). On the other hand it allows more experienced users to fine tune the detection operation selecting the exact file properties used for the comparison, if run in expert mode. For more information please refer to the detailed documentation.
i-DeClone is simple on the outside but packs lots of strength inside, including several AI modules for similarity detection. Usually hundreds or even thousands of duplicate files will be discovered. i-DeClone helps you work with large file collections using filters and checkboxes. The automatic Mark wizard helps you select the unwanted duplicate files to be removed without mistakes or risk to your files. To clean up, you can either delete the clones or replace them with space efficient hard and symbolic links to the "original" files. Undoing mistakes is also possible in many situations where the Recycle Bin can be used for deleting files.
I've been working on i-DeClone for several months now, and with the help of early adopters (testers) I proudly present to you the first beta version of i-DeClone for your feedback and suggestions. xplorer² users will find many familiar UI elements like the quick filter box, dockable preview pane, similar keyboard shortcuts, shell context menu etc.
Minimum requirements: windows Vista or later (32 or 64 bit)i-DeClone is now final, see the website for a free trial
Eventually i-DeClone will be trialware, but the beta is fully functional and free, so feel free to remove all your clones gratis, on zabkat. As an extra incentive for testers, anyone who submits substantial feedback (e.g. discovers a bug) will get a free license when the program becomes widely available. Thanks for all your feedback!
