The File Properties docking panel appears, by default, at the lower left of the main Duplicate File Detective user interface.
To show properties for a file, simply select it in the duplicate report results listing. The File Properties panel will be updated to reflect the properties of the currently selected file.
The following information is displayed:
•General - Name, full path, and other basic file information.
•Size - File size information.
•Date & Time - Shows all date / time file attributes.
•Path Length - The name of the selected file's name length (and full path length).
•Attributes - Shows attributes that apply to this file (e.g. read-only, hidden, etc.).
•Version - Shows file version information (appears only for executable file types).
•Audio Tags - Shows audio tag fields (for supported audio file formats).
The File Properties docking panel also offers several functions via its integrated toolbar:
•Save - Writes a copy of the file properties to a text file in the location of your choosing.
•Copy - Places a textual representation of the file properties on the Windows clipboard.
•Categorize - Breaks down file property data into a series of logical categories.
•Alphabetize - Shows file property data in alphabetical order.
Note: Information displayed within the File Properties docking window is read-only (e.g. modifications to file properties cannot be made from here).
