Find file/data duplicates on Linux and Windows

There could be many duplicated copies of files sitting in your hard drive, especially, on the huge capacity file servers.

There are some software / scripts can be used to find and delete the duplicates. For example:

  1. fdupes is a command line tool written in c. It uses MD5 to find the duplicated copies.
  2. FSlint is an GUI application available on Linux that can find and display the duplicates.
  3. Noclone is an windows application that does byte-to-byte comparison to find the duplicates on the file servers. (Windows only)
