Exasperating behavior of Cloned File Scanner


Recommended Posts

My usual procedure is to run the Cloned File Scanner in Filename mode first, delete the duplicates, and then run it in Byte-to-Byte mode. When I run the Scanner in Filename mode, it works well - although I have noticed on many occasions that it isn't perfect: Duplicate files that are deeper than about 3 subfolders in aren't picked up. However, when I switch to Byte-to-Byte mode, the program scans until it gets to 80%, and then just stops there for a long time. After a couple of hours, it gets to 81%, and then if I don't use the computer for a couple of days and then come back to it, sometimes it's finished, and other times it's still hanging somewhere in the 80+% range. Why does it do that, and is there anything that can be done about it?
