| The Output
Window displays different content depending on which search mode
If the Find files mode is active, right-clicking in the Output Window displays a context menu with the following options:
In Find duplicates mode, the Output Window displays a listing of the groups of duplicates. This displays the name of the group and the number of duplicates in the group. This is shown as the group name followed by a number in parentheses - for example, “Test.txt(4)” . If Name is used as a search criterion, the name of the group will be the name of the file. So if a search finds that for “test.txt” there are four other copies, for “abc.txt” there are ten other copies and for “screenshot.png” there are three copies, the following entries would appear: “test.txt (4)”, “abc.txt (10)” and “screenshot.png (3)”.
If Name is not in use and Size is used, then the size will become the name of the groups and the tag <Size> will appear before the group name to clarify against what criteria the group was named. If there are three files that are 102 kb and two files with 1.0 MB the following entries would appear: <Size> 102 kb (3) and <Size> 1.0 MB (2).
If only Content was used as a search criterion then the groups will be given default names, for example <Content> Group1(#), <Content> Group2(#) etc.
When a search is run the files can be narrowed down by name first, size second, date third and then finally content. This is to reduce the search time by reducing the number of date and content compares. Selecting a group in this list will display the entries in the Path column in the Output Window.
In Find duplicates mode, the Output Window contains a list with entries for each duplicate file in the group. The data is displayed in columns. What columns are displayed can be changed under the context menu that appears when users right click on the column headers. Column widths can be altered through directly resizing the columns in the list control. The following columns may be displayed:
When the Find duplicates mode is active, right-clicking in the Output Window displays a context menu with the following options:
Multiple files may be selected in the Duplicates Locations listing by using the mouse and CTRL or SHIFT keys. This allows users to apply context menu options to multiple files in the listing at the same time.
