1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade clonespy -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade clonespy -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files. Duplicate files have exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time and location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. Perhaps you have different versions of a file and you want to find all of them and remove the older versions. CloneSpy can also find zero length files. These are files that have no content.

CloneSpy is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. The appropriate version for your system will be installed automatically.

$packageName = 'clonespy'
$installerType = 'EXE'
$url = ''
$silentArgs = '/S /NODESKTOPSHORTCUT /X64'
$validExitCodes = @(0)

Install-ChocolateyPackage "$packageName" "$installerType" "$silentArgs" "$url"  -validExitCodes $validExitCodes

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

  • Added: If you push the "Delete all marked files" button in the Zero length files window or Single duplicates window without first marking any file then an explanation is given on how to mark files.
  • Modified: Optimized the memory management so that now more of the available memory can be used.
  • Modified: Optimized the structure of the checksum database leading to the effect that your database needs to be rebuilt (previously cached checksums will be recreated).
  • Modified: If you scan a large number of files then the percentages in the scan progress window now have decimal places.
  • Modified: Opening and closing a large number of categories in the All duplicates window are now faster.
  • Modified: Marking a large number of files in the All duplicates window is now faster.
  • Modified: The upper limit for the size of scanned files is now deactivated by default (see Time + Size page of the Options window).
  • Fixed: If you have a large checksum database then CloneSpy no longer freezes for some time when you open the Options window.
  • Fixed: The Options window no longer freezes while the checksum database is being cleaned up (see Database page of the Options window).
  • Fixed: In the Options, if "Make new file" or "Replace file" is selected then the corresponding file name may no longer be erased.
  • Fixed: The Single duplicates window no longer shows files that were already deleted manually by the user during the scan.
  • Fixed: Corrected the original file name in the version information of the installer.
