Duplicate File Check

  WightRob 12:31 21 Mar 2007

I am trying to sort out a whole bunch of files from various sources, i.e. old backups and files recovered from a dead PC. I have copied all these to specific folders on one PC. However there are a lot of duplicate files. The files are mostly MS office files, Word, Powerpoint and Excel. There are also variuous other files such as Serif Page Plus, Adobe and image files. I also have duplicated copies of Outlook Express email stuff.
Does anyone know of a utility, either within XP or 3rd party software that can scan a complete PC to compare file content and provide a list of duplicates?

Thanks, brundle.

These look like just the thing I need. I have downloaded them and will check them out tonight.

It can find duplicate files based on same name, size and/or CRC
It can scan millions of files
and has many file reporting features

You must be very careful when deleting duplicates since many programs require files in certain locations. Deleting them will break the program.
