Fast Duplicate File Finder: Locate And Manage Duplicate & Similar Items

 

Duplicate files present in our hard disk waste precious storage space. If you spend a lot of time on a PC, it is not unusual to accidently have multiple copies of the same document or file in different memory locations. Fast Duplicate File Finder is an application that lets you quickly find and locate duplicate, as well as similar, files and folders present in your hard disk. You can then select the duplicates in a batch operation to move or delete them, freeing up hard drive space, and avoiding cluttering of your file system. It uses fast binary comparison algorithm and has preview support for documents and images.

To start, click New Project button on the top left corner and add the drives and folders to search for duplicates. Once the folders are selected, click Start Scan button at the bottom right corner to begin the search process. After the scan is complete, a summary is displayed of all the duplicate groups and files found in the select drives and folders.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
