it's real, but your suggestion is interesting

looking at https://www.qnap.com/i/useng/app_center ... jump_win=1 it says linux-station needs 4gb ram.

so looks like it won't work on my nas (arm, 256mb ram).

still hoping someone at Qnap will port this in QTS since it's also a linux base.

There are many way to accomplish this (dupeguru in Docker, Qfiling, VM options, Entware, etc.)

This maybe one of my old posts, but I thought I’d update it to say that I’m currently using fdupes to find duplicate files. I have it installed as a .qpkg thanks to the QNAP club.

https://www.qnapclub.eu/en/qpkg/418

You can tweak the published .php file to change the command line used. I changed mine to ignore hidden files (as QNAP has so many) and group by size.

Code: Select all

 fdupes -ASr /share > /share/Public/fdupes.output

How do I use QFiling to look for duplicate files? I don't have a specific file in mind, but I just want to generate a list of all ducplicate documents (photos, videos, files, etc.) so I can free up space on the QNAP.

I also installed QFiling/Qsirch just for dupe search, don't seem to have that function?

So I do want to +1 on this!

If you are comfortable with SSH, I was able to follow this walkthrough as a guide:

https://blog.linuxserver.io/2017/09/17/ ... s-on-qnap/

instead of using TVHeadEnd, I chose a random dupeguru image from the repository, which was created by another user.

i couldn't figure out how to get dupeguru docker running, so i instead ran dupeguru from windows pc and pointed to the QNAP share and that seems to work, albeit there is the 1gbe bottle neck :(
https://dupeguru.voltaicideas.net/

I guess using win10 Virtual station and using dupeguru from there works as well, that part i know how. but if all you require is just dupeguru, then docker is much more efficient if you don't require full blown vm.

Hi, I've a ts251. Is there some tool that can be installed on nas and that can list all duplicated files ? I installed qfiling, qsirch, qumagie, but I didn't got how to use to search duplicate.
Thanks.

Robert.
