How to get rid of duplicate files

Wed Jun 23, 2010

I was wondering how could I check if I had multiple copies of the same files, for example duplicated images or video files. I found this very simple Linux command line tool that does what I need. It’s called fdupes.

By the way, this looks for identical files. It will not find a duplicate song with different bit rates. But it will find duplicate songs even their names are totally different, and even they are located in different directories.
