Duplix: Batch Duplication Utility

Justin | AIR,software | Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Duplix is a batch duplication utility for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. The Duplix utility quickly duplicates files and folders using numeric or custom naming. The numeric naming option allows the user to set a range of values and includes a “minimum digits” setting which can automatically add zeroes to the file names to maintain alphabetical sorting for the duplicated files. The custom naming option allows the user to type or paste in a series of names for the duplicated files. The custom names can be separated by commas, spaces, or line breaks. Both numeric and custom naming options allow for a prefix and suffix for the duplicated file names, and even allow the user to alter the file extension if needed. Existing files can be preserved or overwritten by duplicates depending on the option selected. The user can also choose to delete the original file or folder after duplication if desired.

Installation

You can install Duplix directly from this webpage (if you don’t have the AIR runtime yet, this will install that for you as well):

Please upgrade your Flash Player This is the content that would be shown if the user does not have Flash Player 9.0.115 or higher installed.

Installation Note

Duplix is 100% free to use, but donations are welcome. Because this application is free, I’ve decided not to spend the $200-300/year on a software certificate, so the publisher will show up as “unknown” on the somewhat ominous install screen.

Thanks to Peter Elst for creating an AIR installer badge plug-in for WordPress. I used it to embed the installer on this page.

And thanks to côdeazur. I used the AIR Remote Updater code for the automatic upgrades within Duplix.

    Cool app, almost just what I was looking for. If it supported duplication of a file 10,000 times without hassle, that would have been awesome!

    Patrick,
    That support could probably be added to a future release. Just curious…why would you need to duplicate a file 10,000 times?

  4. Patrick says:

    I needed to duplicate a file 10,000 times to load test an application we are building. I know that it isn’t a very good test, but that is what we’ve been asked to do.
