How To Exclude A Folder From Auto-Check Or How To Set A “Source” Folder
This information applies to:
Fast Duplicate File Finder
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder
The auto-check feature in the duplicate file finder tools automatically selects all except one duplicate file in each group for move/delete. The feature selects the files based on the defined settings like the oldest/newest, largest/smallest files, ones with lower resolutions for images or lower quality for audio files and so on, but sometimes it is necessary to preserve the files in certain “source” folders and exclude them from the selection. That is quite easy by ticking a check-box in front of the folder name in the folders list.
In the folders list tick the ‘Disable Automark For This Folder’ checkbox for the corresponding folder.

Cannot replicate. My files are always autochecked notwithstanding the fact that I have not checked these checkboxes.
Yes they are auto-checked exactly because those boxes are not ticked. Please take a second look at the description.
