Which Software to use for finding duplicate files?
I have been trying to sort some backup disks I have. Over time I've tried a lot of different linux distros. On each one I've saved some files and imported some files from backup, then when I moved on to another distro I backedup the home directories and saved to CD.
Now my problem is, I have a pile of CDs, which have probibly 70 to 80 percent duplicate files, most of which are exact duplicates, yet some no dought have been edited.
So now I might have several copies of the same file with the same name, yet they aren't the same.
My question is, Is there a linux utility which will check these files and tell me which are exact duplicates, regardless of name and date stamp? That would cut a lot out of my sortting work.
