    Looking for a good duplicate file checker

    Hi everyone, I recently had to replace my external hard drive and restore a backup to it from my main computer's hard drive. Although the backup was only a few weeks old, I had been moving around a lot of files and now I notice that there are a lot of duplicate files everywhere.

    I'd like a good duplicate file Checker to help me find duplicate files and delete the ones that I don't want. Thanks for any recommendations

    The latest version of Piriform CCleaner (V4) has a built in duplicate file finder. Although I've not tried it yet, so I can't tell you from experience how well it works. More info at the following link:

    cCleaner is great, if I wait 2 days it always cleans 2 GB of gunk files out. To find the rest of the dupes I use Yamicsoft Windows 8 manager- It has the best one. I Always call it "Yamok Sauce" heh. But it is a good all around program, tweeks your settings and you get max speed out of your PC.
