Hi experts and pros! And a happy new year 2011 to everyone!

I'm looking for a "private" tool that could deduplicate my external HDD. I'm sure I have tons of files double on my Disk drives, and I can't afford to do it per hand. Even better if it can be free, or afordable.

The HDD is file-level access from MAC OS.X and Windows 7 clients only.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm going to move this over to our sister site as I think they're more likely to be able to help with this type of question. – Chopper3 Jan 10 '11 at 11:06
