Duplicate File Finder?

Hi all. I know I have a lot of duplicate files. What's a good and free app that detects duplicate files? Thanks for any help. Oh, Win XP Pro SP2.
I like stuff.

For general files, I can't help you. But there is a nice Windows program to detect duplicate image files. The best part about it is you can detect approximate similarity too (one image is larger than another but otherwise identical; one image is 99% the same as the other; etc.). It's called Dup Detector.

It's a pretty common feature for anything that digs through disks. Quite a few options if you google dupe finder or similar. <a href="http://zabkat.com/x2down.htm">xplorer2</a> does a good job. The free version doesn't include dupe finding, but the pro version is free for 3 weeks. Might do what you need.
There are a vast number of people who are uninformed and heavily propagandized, but fundamentally decent. The propaganda that inundates them is effective when unchallenged, but much of it goes only skin deep. If they can be brought to raise questions and apply their decent instincts and basic intelligence, many people quickly escape the confines of the doctrinal system and are willing to do something to help others who are really suffering and oppressed." -Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, p. 195

I had a lot of duplicates of my music collection. Tried some software who would generate a MD5 checksum without results,so I ended up using the search feature of Windows Explorer. I knew that the duplicate files had "(" in their filename, and ".wma" as their extension. Search, select all (after proof reading), delete. Big smile
The future ain't what it used to be.

Thanks for the Clonespy link. I'm reclaiming a lot of wasted disk space as we speak.
Don't always trust the opinions of experts.
