    Duplicate files/folders


    I am after some software that will help me remove duplicate files.

    In this case, some program seems to have recreated duplicate folders with just a file called "desktop.ini" in it. I would like to be able to search for that and remove all the corresponding duplicate folders that contain just that filename.

    OK when done.

    Thanks for the reply. Mines already set to those settings. I think it was some program that created them for some reason. Only some have the ini file while others have other bonafide files in them.
