Just wondering if anyone out there knows of a utility or app that will safely search for duplicate files and safely remove them.

My problem is that I have thousands of photos of my young family (3 kids under 7), through making slide shows, and disks for other family members I have found myself with a lot of duplicates. To search and open each one would take weeks I'm sure. I am looking for something that will safely remove all but one copy of the photographs, So I don't lose any.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your time,

You can use a program called Duplicate File Finder (DupFiles) to determine the duplicate files on your system. The nice thing is that you can specify the directories to search in, such as C:\Program Files. You can also delete the duplicates with this program, but be careful to only delete the ones you know you don't need. If you are unsure, you can save the output as a CSV file and we can help you out with it.

Another good one would be clonespy.
