It is often that somehow the user tends to create the duplicate file and later on he feels too difficult to delete it. And you are also going through the similar condition. And to fix this issue you have to follow the below mentioned steps:
  • First you have to open the search window by pressing the ?windows key + F?
  • Then in the search box you have to type the name of the file that you suspect that it may be duplicated and then press enter.
  • In the toolbar of the search windows you will find the VIEWS option just click it.
  • After that just select the details option from it.
  • Then just see the files and then match then with their dated if the modified dates are similar then the files are duplicated on the same day and then just open those two files and compare them with help content and delete as per your requirement.

Well if this is the case then I will ask you to install software called Auslogics Duplicate File Finder. This software is used to find out the duplicate files and then you can delete the one based on the content. The Auslogics Duplicate File Finder has the MD5 search engine, this search engines allows the system to search on the basis of the content. This file will also be useful if you are having two similar video files or mp3 files with identical tracks. So just install it on the system and then get rid of the problem faced by you.

I was also facing a similar kind of problem few days back and I can understand your tangle. But if you want to solve this than I have software which will find all the duplicate files from your system. The Anti twin version 1.8d is the fantastic one that I have ever used. This software will automatically find the similar files and delete the duplicate one by keeping the original one. So you have to do nothing everything will be done by this software.

Well try "AVG PC tuneup 2011". It is also a very good choice with lots and lots of other very good options and tweaks. this has option of finding duplicate files with choice in type of files and also the option of file size of greater than or smaller than a specified size. I m using it with lot of success.
