    I'm moving into a new laptop and am trying to clean up my photo archives. After moving my redundant backup archives onto my new laptop I've got *gulp* 81 GB of pics!

    What's the preferred tool for finding and deleting dupe files on Windows 7?:faint:

    There's one I found called "Duplicate Finder" and "Easy Cleaner" by Toni Arts also has a similar feature.

    The OS version is irrelevant; both should work exactly the same on XP, Vista & 7.

    Just make double-sure you are deleting true duplicates. I don't wanna have to help you recover files you thought were duplicates but were originals. ;) :tongueout:
