Does anyone know of a program ( preferably free ) that will scan for duplicates of all kinds, in all areas?

I'm a real packrat !! My Favorites is loaded & there's hardly an empty spot on my desktop , & I've already created a couple new folders for things that I've saved there. I'm always in a hurry I guess 'cause I want to get sooo much reading done before I rush off to work, then don't get back to what I've saved & then end up reading something again, forget I've already got it & save again.

I really don't want to use up my week of vacation going through this whole machine :thumbsup:

Thank you.

You might try Duplicate File Finder 1.1.0.0. I have only used it once, so cannot really tell you this will help, but the application is free and does not contain spyware:

As with any software of this type, be sure to review carefully what it finds before deleting any file, since SOME files should, in fact, be found several places on your hard drive; there are enough user edits, though, to localise the search to certain folders and certain file extensions.

Cheers,
