Duplicate file query?

Is there a way for DO to search for duplicate file but ignore text in brackets? For example, I'd like for DO to consider 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe (Europe).a26 and 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe (USA).a26 to be a duplicate file.

Thanks in advance.

That isn't built-in but could be done using a fairly simple script.

If time permits we might be able to make a basic example script.

Would you want it to just look below the current folder, or in a list of several (hardcoded?) folders, or something else?

Is filename the only criteria you want to test against? (Not size, date, contents, etc.)

I think just below the current folder would be OK and yes filename is the only criteria. Thanks for your reply.

I think this should do what you want:

For reference, here's the script code which is inside the toolbar button:

function OnClick(clickData)
	// Change this to change the collection name it outputs to.
	// It'll add the starting folder name to the end.
	// WARNING: Will go haywire if you run the button twice in parallel!
	var Collection_Name = "Dupes Special";

	var resPath = DOpus.FSUtil.Resolve(clickData.func.sourcetab.path);

	Collection_Name += " - " + resPath.filepart;

	var cmd = clickData.func.command;
	cmd.deselect = false; // Prevent automatic deselection

	var mapNamesToVecPaths = DOpus.Create.Map();

	// r = Recursive
	// l = Skip junctions and symbolic links
	var folderEnum = DOpus.FSUtil.ReadDir(resPath, "rl");
	while (!folderEnum.complete)
		var folderItem = folderEnum.Next();

		if (folderItem.is_dir)
			continue; // Skip directories.

		var name = folderItem.name_stem_m; // Separate stem from extension.
		name = name.replace(/^(.+) \(.+\)$/, "$1"); // Remove " (*)" at the end of the stemp.
		name += folderItem.ext_m; // Add extension back.
		name = name.toUpperCase(); // Uppercase everything so the map ignores case.
	//	DOpus.Output(name + ' - ' + folderItem);

		if (!mapNamesToVecPaths.exists(name))
			mapNamesToVecPaths(name) = DOpus.Create.Vector();

	//	DOpus.Output(name + ' = ' + mapNamesToVecPaths(name).count);

	for (var e = new Enumerator(mapNamesToVecPaths); !e.atEnd(); e.moveNext())
		var vecPaths = mapNamesToVecPaths(e.item());
		if (vecPaths.size > 1)

//	DOpus.Output(cmd.filecount)

	var colPath = 'coll://' + Collection_Name;

	// Delete any existing collection.
	// Create a new blank collection.
	// Add the found items to it.
	cmd.AddLine('Delete QUIET FILE="' + colPath + '"');
	cmd.AddLine('CreateFolder READAUTO=no NAME="' + colPath + '"');
	cmd.AddLine('Go PATH="' + colPath + '" NEWTAB=findexisting');

	// Now add the found items (if any) to the collection.
	// This needs to be done as a separate command to the three above.
	if (cmd.filecount > 0)
		cmd.RunCommand('Copy TO="' + colPath + '" COPYTOCOLL=member');

Hi Leo, thank you so much for creating that. I will give it a go and report back later.
