    I had a computer crash and then I changed systems and I'm trying to consolidate several external HD's files onto one drive and get rid of all the dupicate files. I know for sure there are tons of duplicate files and we are talking several hundred gigs of data so I can't do it manually. What is the best program to identify/delete duplicate files on a MAC? (photos, excel, word, pdf's, etc.)

    I'm using a 2008 iMac with 10.5.x

    I don't care if i have to pay for a program as long as it's really easy to use. The file names might not be the same, so I'm looking for a program that can identify the files are identical even though the file names might not be the same.

    Hi there,

    I used a programme called Araxis Find Duplicate Files for this - worked very well. Seem to remember I downloaded it from the Apple site a long time ago, so It might well be in the App store.
