How do I find duplicate files in my Macbook?
I do not feel that I have that much stuff saved on my hardrive, but I keep getting messages saying that my startup disk is almost full. I have several friends with the same computers that have the same amount of hardrive space but they have 20 ir 30 gigs left while I only have 1 and we have the same amount of songs and pictures.

This thread might help. Maybe.
Have you emptied Trash?
Have you installed any Norton products?
Try running basic Mac OS X maintenance.
There might be a runaway app writing to an invisible file.

You can use spotlight (mac's desktop search). It can find the files with the same filename.
