    Is there some software that will compare filles in one directory with
    another. The reason being, I have many hard drives with copies of the
    smaller drives on the larger drives. This means as I have gone from a 2gig,
    8.4gig, 40gig, 80gig, 160 gig I have many copies of the same files, and I
    want to delete the duplicates, some of the directories have changed over the
    years, and it would take hours to sort it out manually. Any ideas apart
    from serching in explorer, and listing duplicate files manually?
