Find duplicates

Top  Previous  Next

The point of it


The idea is to be able to check whether you have files with the same name in different folders. You may often make copies of files and a few weeks later cannot remember where they were.


This program only checks whether the files it is comparing have the same name. (You could use Compare 2 Files to see whether they are in fact identical.) It handles lots of folders, the point being to locate unnecessarily duplicated files or confusing reuse of the same filenames.


How to do it

Specify your Folder 1 and simply press "Search". Find Duplicates will go through that folder and any sub-folders and will report any duplicates found.

Or you can specify 2 different folders (e.g. on different drives) and the process compares one set with the other.
