Hi, I have a few thousand photo's on my computer, all jpeg. They are in various folders sorted by date and or events. I have noticed that I have a fair few duplicates for some reason. They all have different file names and different creation dates as a lot of them have been scanned in from prints or slides. Is there a program available anywhere that will let me do a search based just on file size rather than name etc. so I can find the duplicate photos?
If you use the Search facility from within Windows Explorer, you can search by size.
Alternatively, if you go into the Search facility and don't specify any search critera, it will return everything. You can then sort by size by clicking on the Size column heading (suggest you have the View option set to Details for this).
i have not steered you wrong. have you tried searching for .jpg by just typing in .jpg in the search box? .jpg is part of the filename. and you can confine your search within select drives that contain said jpg files as well as exclude folders within select drives.
i was able to match recovered deleted files with gobbledygook filenames.jpg created by the recovery program with backed up jpg files by searching for the file extension and then sorting by file size.
