I used dupfinder.exe a while ago to clean up a bunch of recursive backups for a family friend.

She didn't have the resources to go back and verify what remained. I do recall having to run it a couple times and not being super impressed, but it was better than what I started with.

googling "duplicate file finder" returned this link from AusLogics, who I've found tend to make good stuff and they often make it available for free:

Haven't used that specific product, but I use their defrag program and it's great.

Edit to add: sorry about the 6 year necropost. Must have been bumped by spam and then the spam was deleted. OH WELL.

You can also examine a number of duplicate file detecting freeware/donateware programs at file download site. A few of the programs look very useful and provide flexibility in how the user wants to deal with suspected duplicate files.

I've used the site for many years now, and it's provided exemplary screening of freeware and other programs. It also almost always includes a notice if a program is ADware (optional or not), and whether or not the user can opt-out of the ADware pieces (toolbars, etc) during installation.
