I had to use WinHex to restore some files (jpg and crw (raw) files) that were deleted.

Herein lies the problem....

some of the files on my hard drive were 'indexed', some were not (indexed = my way of organizing stuff)
some of the files that were restored were 'indexed', some were not

That being said, is there anyway to automate a process wherein, if the 'date picture taken' (including seconds) and the file size are equal, delete one of the files?

If there is no way to automate this, it is going to take me DAYS (not hours) to do this. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOo bummed right now.

Thanks!

Is this something like what your talking about?
Dup Detector - will scan pictures within a file (including subfolders) and present potential duplicates for deletion.

Another excellent program, which I use personally, is Duplicate File Finder. It works on any file type and is really, really fast. (I ran it against two folders which were >10GB each and it took only about 3 minutes!). Best of all, it's absolutely free!
