    Program For Finding Duplicate Names


    Greetings. I have a very large collection of Movies & TV Series on 31 external HDD's.
    I have been collecting for years and my memory is not what it was.

    Does anyone know of a program, that will index all of those drives and will enable me to search the result for folders/files of the SAME NAME?

    To be more precise: the program needs to show all same name folders/files, without me entering in any name or extension, etc.

    CCleaner has a dupe finder and you can choose as many drives as you want.

    Tried CCleaner. Unfortunately, it will not do what I want:
    (1.) It can only search HDD's that are attached to the PC.
    (2.) It does not show Folders. Most of my movies and TV Series are in folders.

    It looks like I need a program that can Index all of the HDD's and then search the results.

    Try this too, I use to find files, but can delete within it's results TOO.

    See settings for selecting ONLY drives you wish to search, very flexible free tool.

    If you use glarysoft's suite, it's also part of it.
