I have found the multithreading to be unreliable and producing inconsistent results. For the time being, I am reverting that code change.

New version (1.2014.0703.2350) is up.

Get it http://www.codelake.com/downloads/DuplicateFileFinder.zip

* Removed multithreading due to reliability issues.
* Change the min and max size options and made them independent of one another.

That reminds me of an application I wrote year and years ago, in VB6 no less. Where I attempted to handle search with multithreading.

My trick was that for each initial path the user entered there would be one thread. It worked for the most part. The hard part was getting all the information from each thread back into the main thread for display.

My problem was it was building wrong number of files to begin with. A normal approach found 6002 files for example but the multithreaded approach found 6001 and sometimes 6002 and sometimes 6000. I can't publish that. Have to find a better way.
