comment Program for remove exact duplicate files while caching search results
@Synetech: As I said pretty clearly I think in the body of the question, the archive is static. Hence no renames, no moves (ok, theoretically it can happen but it will be very rare).

Your screenshot cannot be read at all. Can you upload somewhere else?

Btw, Dennis SHA-1 isn't collision free. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sha-1 ...but for day-by-day files work is sufficient. I chose tiger for speed gain.

comment Program for remove exact duplicate files while caching search results
Thanks a lot - Following loosely your solution, I've posted a full/native Windows solution (ok, it is cross-platform actually, because hashdeep runs also on *nixes). Also, I chose not to encapsulate the commands in .bat files because the commands are fairly simple. Thanks a lot, anyway. Upvoted.

comment Program for remove exact duplicate files while caching search results
Answering: 1.) No, I cannot access the disks simultaneously. But, well, perhaps a kludge can be used. 2.) Now we have 5 (five) disks which are ok (the disks A..M in my example) but an "unknown" number of disks which needs checking. However, I estimate the number of these disks (IOW the 0..9 disks in my example) to 5-6. 3.) Yes, I want to store the db for future use. However I think (ok, I hope) that the "main cleaning" will happen only once.

@Dennis: Do you need an exact number? An estimate would be: 400-500k files taking ~ 4-5 TB
