Find Duplicates v.5.0.0

Applications in Delphi and BCB > Files and Drives > Erase and UnErase

By David J. Taylor.

Freeware 26 Sep 2001

Description

Find Duplicates was written to allow you to control your disk space usage by discovering files that are duplicated and, should you so wish, deleting one or more of these duplicates. There are many ways in which duplicate files can be deposited on your hard disk, for example programs which don't check to see if you have a particular DLL installed and install their own private copy in any case, or other programs that install a DLL in your Windows folder when it is already in WindowsSystem32. You can also use Find Duplicates to see if any files on a floppy are already present on your hard disk.

Library requirements: Delphi 5 runtime library.

ShowMan v.5.1.2

Applications in Delphi and BCB > Files and Drives > Disk Tools

By David J. Taylor.

Freeware 26 Sep 2001

Description

"The ShowMan utility was written to help you keep disk space under control. It does this by presenting a pie chart of what is on your hard disk or network drive, and allowing you to drill down into different subdirectories. In this way, you can quickly identify what is taking up most space on your hard disk, and decide what to delete. ShowMan is purely a read-only tool, quite deliberately it does not include any way of deleting files or folders. You could consider my WinTidy program for removing backup and other temporary files, or my Find Duplicates program for detecting and deleting duplicate files. ShowMan knows about hard disk cluster sizes, and will normally report the actual space occupied on the disk, rather than the nominal file size. In this way, the full penalty of having a large number of small files is clearly visible."

Requirements: Delphi 5 runtime library.
