HANDLING DUPLICATE FILES

audiocomparerDuplicate File Finder from Auslogics.com is a free program that finds duplicates on your computer and external drives and CDs. Removal of the duplicates is a bit more tedious than it was with VisiPics, which we wrote about earlier, since you have to point to each file you want deleted, but it does the job and may give you some time to think about deleting something. It does not handle duplicate music files, however.

For duplicate music files in your iTunes or other collections, a program like Audio Comparer works better. It examines the quality of the files and automatically keeps the better one.  The program is $35 from audiocomparer.com.
