Best Duplicate File Finder Deduper? Option to ignore part of filename?
I have been using a program called DoubleKiller to find and delete duplicate files and it as worked very well. Now I am looking for a program that pretty much works the same way and will search for duplicate file names only but will ignore the last 4 or 5 characters of the filename (whatever I set) and try to match the rest of the characters.
Right now, DoubleKiller can search for duplicate files based on any combination of filename, size, dates or CRC32-checksum. What I need is a tool that will search by filename but ignore the last handful of characters. I'm assuming this will be something I can set with wildcards or something. Think of it sort of a reverse wildcard search. I also use a program called UltraSearch and maybe that has this function but I'm not certain.
For example, if i had a filename called "IMG_1001final" and another called "IMG_1001print" and they were different sizes, no deduper program would find that because the filenames AND sizes are different. I need a wildcard type search or deduper to ignore the last several characters so it would present to me both of these files for action.
