new team for create double file search and management app

Unread post by merlino1975 » Fri Aug 03, 2018 12:21 pm

I would like, unfortunately, I am not a developer and I know very little programming language, or rather nothing, collaborate with those of you who are able to create a Synology app for the search and management of double files and folders.

I have several ideas on how to design it. To those who are interested I am willing to share them to create a working group.

Excuse my ignorance, but what’s a “double file search”?!
What does it do?

I see. You want to check for duplicates.

One way this can be accomplished is by mounting your share and having a utility that checks for duplicates go at it.

On my Mac I use Gemini. I’m sure there are free solutions too out there for all the platforms.

Which is?
I did not mean the analyzer, or rather, I meant an integration to the analyzer, which in addition to analyzing, or which broadens the types of query available, allows you to move, delete, check with the possibility of comparative quick previews, all files duplicate candidates. Plus other functions that help the user to clean the archive directly from synology without using programs like ccleaner spyfile, gemini or others

Thank you for pointing this out Sincarne. It does indeed. I’ve never tried it before :-)
