Which duplicate files and folders finders exist for Windows?

I need a software to find large folder duplicates on my computer which match folder sizes exactly. It should be able to access multiple locations, and if possible network drives too.

I have tried duplicate file finder and it gives me thousand's of irrelevant entries, I want to find the largest folders. I have multiple instances as I am backing up data and have copied it all over for convenience.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Unless you can describe a specific situation that is not solved by conventional duplicate finder software, this is not a question that should be asked on SU. We don't do software recommendations here. – user 99572 is fine Feb 9 '12 at 10:15

DiskView (paid) would show the sizes of your folders and represent the space-hungry ones in a pie chart. I guess you could then easily infer (based on the given size/name) if you have duplicated folders.

It seems Folder-size (freeware) would do a bit more in addition as according to their wesite it can sort folders according to:

Folder size
Size percentage from the parent folders size
Files count inside the folder
Subfolders count
Creation time
Last modification time
Last access time Folder owner and group
