Do they make a program that will delete dupliate files from a computer?

by on October 24, 2011

Q: HI. I want to find a program that will delete duplicate files from my hard drive. I’m thinking this might be difficult, as I have found the duplicates have numbered themselves (eg – jpgimage.2, jpgimage.3 etc..). Can you recommend a program that will scan and delete these files ? Am happy to pay for one that works.
Thanks for your time.

    Here is an application I found recently “Fast Duplicate File Finder” and am using on my computer and it works great.

    The link has a mini guide to using the software as well. It is free as well.

    If you’re dealing with duplicate images, Google’s free Picasa software has a duplicate photo detection feature.
