    Basically I'm trying to have a big clear up, and I have tons of duplicate files, so I need a program that will search for all duplicates and I can delete them from within the software, it also needs to be able to take a minimum size, for example only find files over 50 mb.

    Cheers.

    HDCleaner and i think CCleaner search for all duplicate files, but they show you the filesize and than you can select which files you want to delete.

    I downloaded vb6 express from microsoft a while ago but never had any ideas of what to program but a "find duplicate files" utility sounds like a perfect thing to do. Thanks for idea.

    Well its mainly Films and versions of Vista taking up the space(I've got 9 versions of vista from Beta 1 to the RC's and finally the RTM).

    Cheers for the link I'll check them out.

    You might use the software Duplicate Files Deleter. It will give you a detailed analysis of how much space can be saved if you delete the files and what were their original locations so that you know what is deleted from where.

    ++ for CCleaner. Never let me down (especially when my mother falls in rage and create a dozen copies of everything)

    this require reading and understand of what is read, and thought processes, How many people can really claim to have any of that :banana:

    Nerco gods are pleased or displeased depending on which way you look at it :)

    But the question remains: Did the OP get rid of his duplicate files? :pc1::nerd:
