- That 8 copies are in 8 different folders?
- And it's not important in that case from which 7 folders the file is deleted and in which folder the file stays, as long as it is the newest one that stays?
- And filename and filesize are the criteria to tell that files are identical? So if there are many copies of a file, say, admin.xls they can be grouped in groups with the same filename (admin.xls), but possibly different sizes (one group with size 12.786 bytes, one group with size 16.896 bytes, etc) and then in each group only the latest has to stay?
- And: what date has to be used for the comparison (creation date of modification date)?
I copied 8 hard drives to one big drive and ended up with 230,000+ files. There sometimes as many as 8 copies of the same file. They almost always have different dates. I want to if there is a duplicate file eraser that will leave the newest date.
