    Need Recommendations Duplicate File Programs


    Hi Guys I have been completely hoarding computer files (movies/pictures/ etc..) and Now I have 4 external hard drives and so much has been copied I've totally lost track of what I"ve copied and backed up etc..

    What are some really top of the line Duplicate file finder programs for Windows 8.1 (64bit)...

    I've only really used Auslogics Boostspeed for finding duplicate files so far..

    Are there more efficient programs than the one inside boostspeed anybody knows about??

    Thanks..

    Something like this ? Download Duplicate Cleaner Free - MajorGeeks or maybe : Download Exact Duplicate Finder - MajorGeeks
    Look at some of programs on this page, Download Drive Cleaners Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks there's quite a lot of them doing similar things.
    In addition you might want to look for a media cataloging tool to keep a track of what's where. Download Cataloging Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    Cool, Thanks Count.. will take a look at majorgeeks..

    hard to tell which program is the best.. but i guess it depends on which GUI I like best.. i assume they all look at the same thing.. and do the same searching..

    I'd say that AntiDupl is a bit better with media files.
