Hello,

I went through some questions about duplicate files finders here.
Some where old and most related to personal computers.


I am looking for an application, current, not free, which would do a good job in removing duplicate files by moving duplicates to a folders tree to a different location for backup and retrieval if needed.

Before I used Dupehunter:

Not sure that this application is updated anymore and maybe there is something better.

Thank you.

From the sounds of it, something like https://github.com/guicamest/GDuplicate-FinderGDuplicate-Finder should work for you. It supports searching through network drives/shares.
