    Question Locating duplicate files

    When I make my backups of photos to my external drive I've just been dragging and dropping. Since many of them are in different folders etc, I have a ton of duplicates.

    So that brings me to...

    What the best way (or software) to check and then delete these files?

    How can I make incremental backups so I don't have to do this anymore?

    Thanks Mark, I'll take a look at that one too.

    In my search I came across this and I'm giving it a chance to see how it works.

    They also have a duplicate photo finder that gives you a preview. One free version and a $ pro version.

    So far it looks like the free ones really don't cut it. Still searching.
