No files can have the exact same name in the same folder, so most of the time duplicate files will have a (2) somewhere in them, or sometimes start with the words Copy of. You can try doing a search in My Documents for both of those, aka *(2)* and Copy* and see what shows up. Would be helpful if you gave an example of the original file name and the duplicate one so that we can see how the duplicate files are labeled.

What I want to do is find files with the same name in different directories. Over the last 15 years I have migrated stuff over many computers and drives. I don't necessarily remember where I saved things before and so I am finding I have several copies of the same file in different directories ( Maybe I am just disorganized... LOL) Is there any way to identify these files or dump a list of all the files on my computer in alphabetical order so that I can look at the list and identify which ones have multiple copies spread over different directories? I am trying to do some housekeeping......
