Shadows CSharp.sln



shadows is a .NET application written in C#. It allows the user to search selected directories for duplicate files.

There are different levels of accuracy which the user can select, with higher accuracy resulting in longer search times. For example, one can compare files only by name and size, which is very fast. However, identical file names and sizes do not necessarily mean that the content of the files is the same as well. On the other hand, one can choose to compare the whole contents of files, resulting in much longer search times but making sure that the files are actually duplicates.

The search results are then displayed in a table for the user to inspect. From here, one can directly delete files or view them in Windows Explorer. In addition, some comfort functions are available to process large result tables quickly and efficiently.
