Personally I use AllDup its free and very good, it could have some learning curve but isn't to difficult.
The program includes some safe guards against working on windows folders please use the tool only to compare and remove duplicates on documents, images, MP3, etc. and not for System files or programs you have installed.

Thanks, not sure why I'm asking this question but if I have the same file in two different folders will it remove one of the files?
In that case you can drag and drop the two folders for the program window and then make it scan for duplicates, after the scan you can see the list of duplicates and the program allow you to select all the duplicate files from one of the folders and decide if you want to delete, move, copy or rename the files.

There is one point that comes to my notice.
Is this problem, in any way a continuation of the problem on this topic
whilst in essence it does not appear to be so, I cannot wondering if the process
. I have an external hard drive that I have used create music file. The process included copying from one hard drive to another and merging files.
involved the drive at issue in the previous topic.
I have an external hard drive that I have my music stored on that has a file in a folder that I am unable to delete. The file has a name with several squares in it an Omega sign and a capital H. I can not change the file or folder name. When trying to delete I get the message "File name Directory name volume label syntax incorrect" and Cannot read.

Sleepy, I now have All Dup downloaded. I want to eliminate duplicate files on my external "K" drive. How do I do this?
Do you want to remove only duplicates residing on the K drive or you would like to compare with documents and files you have in your local disk also?
There are some video tutorials for this program on the net but i found them complicated for someone that is starting, I will compile some instructions for you, please give me some time.
