"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might try running a Duplicate Finder Tool.  Here are a couple free ones to choose from. I prefer the first one, Easy Duplicate Finder.  It should do what you need and it's easy to use.
