DupScout Command Line Utility
In addition to the desktop application, DupScout Ultimate and DupScout Server provide a command line utility allowing one to perform automated duplicate files search and removal operations or control one or more DupScout Servers via the network. The DupScout command line utility provides a large number of command line options allowing one to search duplicate files, save HTML, PDF, text, Excel CSV and XML reports, export duplicate files to an SQL database and execute duplicate files removal actions.
The DupScout command line utility may be used to execute duplicate file search profiles pre-configured in the DupScout GUI application. Power computer users and IT professionals are provided with the ability to fully-automate duplicate files search and removal operations by integrating the DupScout command line utility into custom shell scripts and batch files.
In addition, to the desktop product versions, enterprises and IT professionals are provided with two server-based product versions, DupScout Server and DupScout Enterprise, which run in the background as a service and allow one to search duplicate files in servers and NAS storage devices over the network. Server-based product versions are especially optimized for multi-core and multi-CPU servers and can search duplicate files in tens of servers and/or NAS storage devices simultaneously.
The server product versions provide advanced duplicate files search, removal, reporting and history trend analysis capabilities and may be controlled using a full-scale client GUI application and the DupScout command line utility locally or via the network.
The DupScout Server client GUI application provides a full set of features available in the desktop product version and additional capabilities allowing one to perform multiple, parallel duplicate files search operations, schedule periodic duplicate files search operations and perform history trend analysis operations.
Finally, DupScout Enterprise provides a web-based management interface allowing one to control one or more servers using a regular web browser through the network and provides the ability to perform duplicate files search operations, save various types of reports, perform history trend analysis, remove duplicate files, schedule periodic duplicate files search operations, etc.
