Im new to mac os x and i seem to accidentally have more then one picture file and make duplicate video pod-cast files when i move them around, is there a way to see all the duplicate files on my computer?

There is probably a better way than the way I know, which would be to use the search function in the menu bar, type in the file extension of suspected duplicates (jpg, tiff, raw, etc...) and then manually scan the results for duplicates, deleting them as you find them. Pain in the butt if you got 5,000 pix like I do! I'm watching this thread to see a better answer myself.

Best answer I can give is spotlight. All the duplicates would have to have the same name though. Are they loose files on your harddrive?
