    Duplicate file detection software

    My younger brother is starting a uni course in a few weeks and want to tidy up his desktop PC. He wanted to borrow a large external USB HD drive from me with the intention of taking all of his old work and getting rid of any duplicates he found. I told him that you can get software that will scan your drive and do it for you. Taking a look today I found this article: Best Free Duplicate File Detector which lists quite a few options. All I want to know is, what, in your opinions, is the best to go for, either on or off that list?

    Thanks, but I need something that is free as this is not for work.

    But you will have to create a container file system to save to.
