Title: Identify and avoid downloading duplicate files.
Post by: O on March 04, 2012, 08:51:31 pm
Can someone tell me where the third party add ons come from?I'm asking because i'm wondering if there's one that will display a file i've already downloaded in a particular color when browsing someone's library so I don't download the same file again.If there isn't one, where can I get in contact with someone who can create one?I don't know the first thing about programming, so it's not something I can do myself, but this is an issue I bump up against a lot as I have a pretty extensive library and sometimes the same file will circulate under different files names.Any help would be appreciated.

Coincidentally a tool of this nature appears to have been released this very day (which i see you have already come across yourself). Personally i know nothing about it, but you might want to give it a try and see how it works. As far as i know there is no other tool available for winmx that will do this.

Hans' tool is a File-Manager plugin, in 3 flavours, for windows and Linux boxes, unfortunately it's not yet a WinMX plugin
