    It seems that sfk dupfind is able to find duplicates even if full path names, modification times and creation times differ. Can you confirm that? I checked this by comparing the identical md5 hashes of the found files.

    I wondered how fast sfk dupfind worked in these cases. I ask myself whether speed is achieved by using less reliable CRC checksums instead of hashes as md5.

    SFK dupfind compares all files of the same size by md5 content comparison. Filenames and modification dates are ignored. If there are many files of the same size, then comparison may slow down.
