hi,

i had some hard drive issues a few months ago that corrupted much data. after a few attempts at using recovery applications, i was able to restore most of my data. but i've been left with many (hundreds) duplicate files (some corrupted, some duplicate in different folders).

is anyone aware of an application that will identify these duplicate files and allow me to clean up my drive?

thanks!

tony
