Looking for duplicate file finder / remover software
Posted on 2008-06-12
We're looking for a software that can find duplicate files of all types either locally or remotely (network share). The app should be able to find files not just by name but by "signature" (something like MD5 hash). It should be able to find duplicates even if the filenames do not match but contents are the same (that's where other, more "intelligent" comparison mechanisms come into play). It hast to work on Windows XP/2003 and should be robust. I would like to avoid java-based solutions, as they tend to be slow and require java, which is not available on every system.
Please don't post top 5 google searches - I can use google myself quite nicely. This will need to run on XP/2K3, free solution would be ideal. Any commercial software should be reasonably priced and preferrably by an established company, not some fly-by-night operation that won't be there tomorrow to support the product.
Thanks in advance!
