Duplicate picture deleter,broken picture remover

Question: Duplicate picture deleter,broken picture remover

I'm doing some data recovery and have come across lots of duplicate pictures,also a lot of them are obviously broken. It started out as 250,000 pictures from practically the entire life of the hard drive,I've narrowed it down to 10,000 in 9GB of which there are still many broken pictures and duplicates making it almost impossible to browse on a normal hard drive so I can't give back to the user in this state,I'm currently browsing them on a fast SSD.

I'd like to remove all the duplicates by reading the actual picture information and not the files name which most do,I've tried a couple so far and none have found a single duplicate.

I've tried Duplifinder

And

Preferred Solution: Duplicate picture deleter,broken picture remover

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have not used this and I am not sure if it will work on Windows 7 64bit but this program will also check files by binary compare. Might be slow though.

Hi all
For years now I have lazily managed my photographs into many folders on my PC. I would like to find the dulpicate pictures and delete them. I am compiling all my photographs into Picasa Web Albums, I know the standalone PC version of Picasa can find and delete duplicate photos but I don't want to use Picasa to manage my photographs. I just want to delete duplicated photographs that I have in many folders before I upload them into their respective Picasa Web Album.
Any ideas please on the best program that can find and delete duplicated photographs from pictures stored in Windows folders?
Many thanks
Neil.

I have found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.


If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
Then use the Insert image option in word...
It's just a safer way to do an operation,

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

Hello there.

Got a problem with you tube. It plays audio but no picture, the screen is just black. It was working fine yesterday

I have tried un-installing flash player and re-installing and re-booting the machine but hasn't made a difference. The problem is the same on all internet browsers IE, chrome and firefox so would suggest that the problem is with Flash player. However I have tried other video sites like BBC iPlayer and that works fine.

You tube is working fine on my other machine which is connected to the same router and internet connection.

The machine in question has Windows XP with AVG and Zone Alarm security software installed. My internet browsers are all set to have full access in zone alarm settings.

The only thing I can think of that might have caused this is that I ran spybot and a CCleaner scan last night. They both found and fixed a few problems. I can't help thinking that other people would have had the same problem if this were the cause and I can't find any reference to it online anywhere. I'm totally baffled by this please does anyone have any ideas what could be the cause?

Answer:youtube has broken. Sound ok but picture is blank.

I've just finished several nights with TSG Security guys getting rid of unwanted visitors here on my computer. The reason I'd done this originally was that I had gone into my Kodak digital pictures to back them up on discs. To my horror, many pictures, on clicking the thumbnail to see the actual pictures, displayed a "picture missing, moved, deleted, or the file is damaged" messages. I Called Kodak, and the "technical" person there pointed out that, within three seconds of opening an album, a little red lightning bolt was appearing in the upper right hand corner of every picture. On going into files to find the pictures, every path was a dead end with no pictures, and she eventually said she'd have to escalate the problem to another tech team, but with my hours of work, I couldn't talk on the phone with them, and ended up here, which is a good thing. Can anybody help me save these pictures?

My newest task is centered around an HP Pavilion 15-p033ca laptop with a broken screen. Replacing the screen is actually super simple but my issue lies elsewhere.

Normally I would hook the laptop up to a monitor via VGA cable. This newer laptop only has an HDMI hook-up, so I hooked it up to my TV with that cable. The HP logo upon start up is semi-visible as the picture is distorted. So, before I spend money and order the screen my question is...

Does an HDMI relay the Broken screens picture to the TV and that's why is messed up? or should the TV picture still be clear? Like when a broken screen laptop is hooked to an external monitor with a VGA and the external monitor works fine.

I'm worried there may be an internal GPU or Mobo issue aside from the screen being broke.... Finally is there a better way I can test this instead?

Thanks for any info or Ideas in advance!

As a keen flickr member I have a lot of photographs on my computer. These are all neatly allocated to different files, depending upon a variety of variables. So far....all is well.

Yesterday my neighbour kindly upgraded me to Windows 10. Everything seemed fine.

Today I tried to take 4 photographs off my camera and load them up to my computer. Initially I got a dialogue box asking me what I would like to do in future when I plugged in my camera - I said "upload the pix to my computer".

Previously they have always arrived on my desktop in a separate file. I would then edit them, afterwards splitting them up into different files, depending on what I want to do with them.

Anyway, this morning, after taken 4 photographs, I plugged in my camera. I then get a message saying "We found 880 photos. Would you like to import them into your picture folder". And the only alternatives given were IMPORT or CANCEL.

Aggggggggh! I do NOT want all my pix jumbled together in a picture folder. I want them all neatly organised into the folders I have set up.

Is there any way I can get rid of this 'Picture folder' and go back to using my existing folders (they are all still there, and all still containing the photographs they should rightfully contain.)

I would be hugely grateful for some help.

Answer:Picture file trying to over-ride my existing picture files

What happens if you click Import? Does it give you the option to move them into a specific folder or does it just appear in the Pictures folder? Usually, you can just double-click the camera in This PC so that you can see its contents and you can copy over photographs that you want into the locations that you want them in.

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,

Answer:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

I want to still use the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer for viewing pictures but when you click the "close and open picture for editing" button I wish to use a different editor than Paint. Does anyone know how to change this permanently? I'm using XP sp2. Thanx.

Background: I like using the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer because it displays the picture instantly which usually is all I want. My other pic editors take way too long to come up to be used as the default for jpg extensions when all you want is to view them. But I would like to edit the pics with a different editor than Paint so it would be convenient to change the "close and open picture for editing" button of Windows Picture and Fax Viewer rather than having to close this program and launch my pic editor and then browse to the same picture. I already read the Help and all it says is it uses the default picture editor but doesn't say how to change it. Note that I still want the .jpg extension associated with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer so changing that is not an option.

Hello,

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

After much messing around I have discovered that if you use Windows 7 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' to set default programs for file types, it breaks the File Types selection within a given program (in my case Microsoft Office Picture Manager) and you are no longer able to use the program itself to set file types only the Windows 7 function. You can tick/untick file associations all day long within Microsoft Office Picture Manager and nothing gets associated/unassociated. The File Types option is basically broken. I have also noticed this occur with 7-zip which actually causes a more serious issue. By default .zip is not listed in the Windows 7 list of 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' window but is listed if you associate .zip with 7-zip's own file association option. BUT if you then subsequently use windows 7 to re-associate .zip with Windows Explorer, the .zip vanishes (because by default is is not listed), breaks 7-zips file association options and you can no longer associate .zip files with 7-zip, EVER. Basically I am curious as to why Windows 7 own file association options would break software's own internal file association options so badly to the point they are essentially useless and if there is a fix. I even tried completely reinstalling Microsoft Office and removing all references of it within the registry, no luck. Its not a big deal but I just found it odd that a fundamental piece of Windows 7 would harm the integrit... Read more

Hello Everyone,

My Outlook has some duplicates of holidays and other appointments that I have in the future. I am looking for a tool that will automatically delete these on a one time basis, by prompting me. I do not want to have something installed in Outlook tht stays there as a plug-in, since I hope to not have this problem in the future.

Can you please recommend an Automatic Outlook Calendar/Appointment (possibly Tasks) Duplicate Remover?

Thanks for any help!

Answer:Outlook 2010 Duplicate Remover

I don't know of any way of doing this automatically without using a plug-in. If the number of duplicate calendar entries is not too large, you could do it manually using the following approach to make it easier and quicker:
Open your calendar in Outlook.
Choose View > Current View > All Appointments. This will make your calendar appear as a list.
Click on the column heading "Subject" to group entries by what they are called, or click on the column headed "Start" to group them by date.
It should be possible now to navigate to where the duplicates are in the list, and each pair of duplicates will be listed one after the other.
Left-click on the first entry you want to delete, then Ctrl-left click on any others you also want to delete.
When they are all highlighted, right-click on one of them and choose Delete from the drop-down menu.
When you are all done, go to View > Current View > Day/Week/Month (or whichever view you prefer).
Hopefully that should get rid of those pesky dupes reasonably quickly

Hi,
We have "DuplicateFilesDeleter" is our system optimization and a simple, but effective tool to locate 'Duplicate Files' in one or more selected search paths - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space.
It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded and performs scans quickly.

Due to numerous computer crashes over years as well as regularly back-up my Outlook folders on DVD's, I got stuck end of last year with all these back-ups.

The Outlook did not work when I tried to import all this data, most of which will in any case be duplicates.I believe there is some or other 2 GB cap.

Outlook 2010, which I have on my PC, is now working well, having started from scratch, without the old emails.

I would like to try to recover some of these old emails/contacts and delete all the duplicates.

Due to limited space on my PC's, I downloaded the 20GB pst's and other files on my daughter's laptop. She has Windows 7 and Outlook 2007.
I downloaded it into C: User\...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst.
All these emails are visible as far as I can see when I open Outlook 2007 on her laptop.

I have installed Accurate Outlook Duplicate Remover on her laptop in order to remove the duplicates, but it gives me the error message when I open the programme that it "cannot find the Outlook files"

So my questions-


Where should I store these Outlook files on her laptop, for AODR to find it?
Is there another way of deleting all these duplicates?

Kind regards

Albie

You should not "import" PST files into Outlook; just open existing PST files with Outlook. You can then (if you want) copy the old data into the default PST file, or keep the old one as an archive.

The 2GB limit is for old (Outlook 97-2002) data files; Outlook 2003 and up has no such limit.

I do not know AODR, but it is possible that it is looking for data files already connected with Outlook. You can see what files are used by Outlook in the Control Panel Mail applet (Outlook Data Files).

Question: No picture on TV!

Hi guys, I have just installed a Creative DXR3 DVD decoder card into my small PC, everything works just fineBut, I tried attaching the card to my TV set with phono leads into a scart adapter,I switch the output in the software dvd player to TV rather than PC monitor and switching my TV to the AV channel, all I get is the sound.I have tried running it through my VCR with the same result, I have tested the leads for continuaty and they seem OK.Am I missing something simple here or what?I know there is not much to go on but thopughts would be helpful to me.Thanks, Boon.SIS530 MoboAMD K6-2 400Mhz CPU384 MBs PC100 SDRAMCreative Savage 4 32MB graphics card (PCI)Creative Encore DXR3 DVD decoder card (PCI)TBS Montego Bay sound card (PCI)WinME200W power supply

Answer:No picture on TV!

sounds like software problem but just to check the lead first take the yellow(video)plug out of the scart adapter and look for a rca phono(also yellow)under the flap or on the side of your tv and plug this in here and see if you can get a picture.if so then its the adapter.have you made sure(stupid question)that its plugged in correctly yellow to yellow red to red and white to white?try also (if you have more than one scart on the tv)another scart.av1 is normally the best.if you do have more than one scart try pressing the av button more than once this will normally cycle through the av inputs.sometimes its possable to get audio only if the wrong av channel is selected.like i say probally software in which case maybe somebody else can help out as i dont know that much.

Question: Bad picture

I need help before I go insane. I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit and Media Center is giving me so many problems. In media Center I am trying to watch Live TV but it looks bad. Downloaded Videos work fine and so do DVD's. But when I go to live tv thats where the problem is. Video is choppy it shows only in 4:3 aspect ratio and not 16:9 aspect ratio. The Actual Media Center is full screen just not the tv picture. I was using A Visiontek 550MCE TV card but that is only analog so I upgraded to a Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card and still the same problems. And no digitlal signal. I have RCN cable. In the bedroom I have a set top box but in the living room it just goes strait to the TV. Connected directly to the tv it works great I get HD channels and all(No payper view). I have the following set up:
Motherboard: Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP
Processor: AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core 9600
Memory: G.SKILL DDR2 PC2 8500 4GB kit
Video card: MSI RX3870-T2D512E OC
Tv Card: Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card
Old Tv Card: Visiontek 550MCE

I was even thinking about using a differnt program like beyond Tv. Please any help would be great.

Answer:Bad picture

The 4:3 ratio may be dependent on whats being broadcast. Also have you set your monitor/TV in MC settings to 16:9?

Choppy playback is usually either a) poor reception b) bad codec c) dodgy video driver.

Have you installed any codec packs? Tried a few different video drivers?

Answer:no picture??

I have seen this problem with AGP cards that have to be reset sometimes. Since your video is on board, it could have been just static build up with your monitor. Remember these monitors are capable of sometimes 20,000 volts coming from the flyback so sometimes this power can leak to certain ground frames on the chassis. I know this sounds very strange but believe me it can happen!

A jpeg itself can't submit something unless it was a virus in a form which none of those came out even after the patch to protect against that from what I know.

Question: The big picture.

I've been thinking about all that's been mentioned about the "One version of Windows" and why they are doing it. This is something that just occurred to me. Right now, you have several versions of Windows to chose to install like Windows 7, and Windows 8.1, if you don't want Windows 10. Eventually there will be just one version of Windows. Once Windows Vista, 7 and 8 reach end of life Microsoft doesn't have to support them any more with updates and security fixes. And sales of those versions will stop. There will just be the one version of Windows. The continually evolving OS. If you buy a new device and want Windows on it your only choice is the current offering. No buying last years version etc. You take it or you leave it. They only have to support that one OS, especially if they make updates/upgrades mandatory. There will be no having to convince you to upgrade to the latest version, you will have no choice. It's just Windows. Microsoft will save big bucks by not having to patch several versions of Windows at the same time. Once your in to the new Windows your in for life. Good or bad.

Answer:The big picture.

Vista has already left mainstream support, and will leave extended support in April 2017 (2 years from now).

7 ended mainstream support last January, and will leave Extended support in January 2020 (4.5 years from now)

Windows 8 ends mainstream support in January 2018 and Extended support in January 2023 (7.5 years from now).

Both Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 have already stopped retail sales. OEM sales have ended for Vista, and will likely end for 7 fairly soon. Windows 8.1 retail sales will end when Windows 10 goes on sale.
