Problems with duplicates? Then you may want to try this utility application: Dupeguru...

It is something I swear by when looking for duplicates!

You can do even more sensitive searches, so if a file name has been changed, dupeguru can still find any duplicates.

~~~You can search two folders, looking for duplicates in each.

~~~You can set one folder as the main folder, and compare other folders to find duplicates.

~~~You can search multiple folders AND subfolders (as in more than two) for duplicates.

There are multiple ways to use this application.

Here's a picture of the page where you can find the download :D

Please let me know if more clarification or assistance with this utility is desired <3

Suzanne I did ask this question in the other thread but it may be better to repeat it here:
I suppose one should check for doubled before one merge the files?

Excellent catch, Anita :D

Yes, one should check for duplicates prior to merging files.

I know I have purposely not checked for a while...

right now! LOL

I am going to have to remerge too at some point. I did want to share this...
I got to use the program last night as a few new files were causing issues with my game not loading properly. I removed, roughly, 15 files and then game loaded perfect. I have 63 dups in the files already merged so I have a feeling that once I do I will have super short load time.

I'm leaning more and more to the belief this game's Kryptonite is duplicate files. A truly bad file the game won't load at all but I think dups are mainly responsible for the lag and slow load times. It is possible that is the reason why merging files helps. Later tonight I'm going to test that theory and remove my merges and use the now dup-free separated files then reload my game and see what happens. :)

I'm looking forward to the update, Melisa :D

Thank you for testing this out - anything we can do to improve game performance is something I'm interested in! <3

Anita - That's the program I wanted to try out to delete unwanted CC but when I go to the link it's dead. :-(

Suzanne - Do you have a working link for this program? (Tray Importer)

Yes - here is the SimsVIP write up:  SimsVIP Write Up

Here is the link to the Sims 4 Tray Importer application: Sims 4 Tray Importer

I verified that the download link is working :D

Here is the link for the MAC Beta version: MAC Sims 4 Tray Importer (Beta)

Anita, would you please edit and strike out your modthesims link? That page has non-working links.

Hi Dido :D

First, are you using a PC or a MAC?

...if a MAC, make sure you are downloading the MAC version (below the main download

Second, what operating system are you using if it is a PC?

...if you are using Windows XP, click that download link.

(see picture below)

Finally, if none of these solves your issue, click the Alternate Apps link to try a different program.



~~~
Please let me know if you need more assistance - I am available via telephone or skype (skype is good because we can share screens). Just pm me for my number or skype contact information.
