Can anyone please help by suggesting a good programme that will seek out
and display and if possible delete duplicate files.
I seem to have gathered hundreds of them and I badly want to tidy up.
Please, thanks, rondee

Be carefull, Very carefull, unless you know what you are doing there are many pitfalls.
If you decide to go ahead make sure you have a backup or at least system restore.

I think you are asking for trouble big time, although they may be same size and name, they may differ. This can mean programs or windows not working as they should, if you start deleting dll's

recap, rawprawn, woodchip.
many thanks to you all, but now I am really worried.
To explain , I have copied loads of photographs from my camera to my hard drive.
When I open and look in Picasso (and only in picasso) this is where I have found so many duplicate photographs, the same photo' oft times repeated.
There are also numerous odd files that show most odd items like copies of spy bot searches and loads of clip art and I have no idea where these have come from. Having considered the above, does your advice still stand, and should I not remove them.
Thanks rondee.
