Find Duplicate Images with VisiPics

I’ve been using this utility for years. It scans folders and matches up duplicate images, from a strict match to “similar” matches (such as the same image, but in a lower resolution).

It seems to not have been updated since 2013-02-04, but it works really well with Windows 10 (64-bit)., up to tens of thousands of images.

It does have an upper limit (20,000+), but I have not determined it exactly yet..

Samsung NVMe 3.1 Driver

Download Here: Samsung NVMe 3.1 Driver
Password: “Samsung“.

I created this because sometimes the windows executable from Samsung won’t install if a temp folder is not set correctly.

This archive is the 3 files from the official Samsung NVMe 3.1 driver download page with no modifications, just zipped up.

Remember: Always create a Restore Point before you install, and keep your antivirus ENABLED.. just to be on the safe side.

Here are my results before installing this driver.
nvme standard 1GB

And the results after installing this driver.
nvme samsung 1GB

Conclusion: only slightly better than Microsoft’s NVMe driver on this computer.
Both results are within the margin of error of each other.

Open Letter from this Developer to Other Developers about Installers

A request from this Developer: Please make your installer’s default installation folder to use the %temp% environment path variable I have configured on my computers.

My system drive (C:) is an SSD disk is reserved for the Windows 10 and Program Files.. and not your installer’s temporary files.

Dear Developers: BUTTONS

Please make the hitbox around your close icons larger than 1 pixel.
And please do not make the X itself the only clickable part!
Make the entire button clickable!

Sigh. It’s like some programmers never actually use the user interface that they design..
