A quick google search (using the terms "microsoft duplicate finder files") brought me to this page: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...ion126121121120

I personally have not run this program or followed these instructions, but it should be a good place for you to start.

Hope this helps.

best way i've found is using freeware JV 16 Power Tools available here:

From bitter experience, I suggest caution in clearing out duplicate files; is is very difficult to figure out what is duplicate and what is the original ur-file.

Poru: Then look for files with the same (name AND (size OR timestamp))

Thanks!
