dupe: and sizedupe:

Post by salazor » Tue Feb 28, 2017 9:34 am

Is command dupe: and sizedupe: working separately? - I have phrase:

Code: Select all

regex:-\d{4,5} dupe: sizedupe:
and I want to search for files with the same name and size, but the list of results appear on files that do not have a pair.

dupe: and sizedupe: used in the same search will find duplicated names in the entire index and files with duplicated sizes in the entire index.

It will not find duplicated sizes in the results from dupe: as you may expect.

To do that, you must first search for:
regex:-\d{4,5} dupe:

Export to an Everything file list, open that file list in Everything, and then search for sizedupe:
