Folks - I am looking for the best tool that can discover duplicate files on a network.  I have a large number of users who have saved the same presentation to numerous parts of the file share network and want to delete duplicate copies of that same documet/presentation.
Can anyone advise on the best tool currently on the market.
As my file server is running out of disk space at a fast rate any advice would be great. :)

I've used Duplicate Finder (http://www.ashisoft.com/) and it works pretty well...

Once you've cleaned it all up you really should look at Windows SharePoint Services (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/sharepoint/wss.mspx)
Sharepoint Services is FREE as part of the Server 2003 licensing.  It's really a great way to manage a document library... not to mention the collaboration benefits, and having a rather instant, easy-to-use intranet.
