I have accumulated several thousand MP3 files and would like to weed out just
the duplicates. Is there a (preferably free) piece of software that doesn't need
to play/burn etc but will search all attached drives & then list the dupes?
There are lots of programs that will find duplicate files by making byte-for-byte
comparisons rather than just looking at the filenames. Unfortunately I can't find
a good free one. Commercial or shareware examples include NoClone Home Edition,
with the cheapest at $15 being Spaceman 99. Searching
Download.com will turn up a few more,
here. Most offer at least a free trial.
