Finding Duplicates: Ignoring certain formats in 'binary compare'

I had a slight mishap and merged the formats of two books together, overwriting the second. The problem is I'm not exactly sure which books. I was able to restore one of the books from recycle bin, and I was hoping to use the binary compare feature of Find Duplicates to track down the other one.

The problem comes in that I use blank .paperbook files in my library to signify, well, paper books, and it's detecting all of those as duplicates. Is there any way around this at all?

EDIT: I'm a bit of an idiot. I just realized that there are separate duplicate groups. I got it fixed now. It'd be nice to exclude the .paperbook files for next time, though.
