Duplicated Files on Hard Disc

  Cameraman 10:47 24 Dec 2007

I have an external usb hard disc which is working ok but contains many duplicated files and folders which have built up over a period of time through saving files when I had to reformat my computer - the question is - is there any software you can recommend that will scan this disc and list the duplicated files and folders so that I am left with only one of each - You have been a great help in the past I hope you can help this time

Many thanks But it is a bit expensive for one operation as I think when it is sorted I wont need it again anyhow I will think about it thanks again

I just tried it out and it works OK for me. It's an .exe file

Thanks again I have downloaded it - I notice it is a trial version so i dont know yet if it will sort the whole disc (150GB) I will try it later as I have to go out--

Not sure what you mean, Duplicate File Finder is Freeware

The file I downloaded was called (duplicate finder version 3.2)
after installing it said Trial version limitations Did I download the wrong version?
