I have a hard drive in my laptop plus a second hard drive connected via USB.

I had problems with my hard drives and had to replace some, plus I tried to do selected backups to protect data. I have ended up with a number of image files on both drives, entered under the same name.

I would like to clean this up.

What software do you recommend that will:

  • Compare files
  • Flag duplicates
  • Allow one to delete selected duplicates

Easy Duplicate File Finder does the job and is my preferred choice.

There is also Auslogics Duplicate File Finder and Clonespy. All of these utilities are freeware.
