    I have scads of images and videos, etc, with a lot of duplicates. Some of them are necessary: I have two external drives with backups of important family stuff, travel, etc. (plus backed up on Google Drive.) Yeah, I'm paranoid about losing priceless stuff.....is there a good tool/online service/something that I can use to ferret out all the duplicates and safely delete what I don't need? I recently saw a product that promised to do that but it's $50 and before trying that I wanted to post here first. Thanks!

    Are you looking to do this locally only?

    That's my primary interest, yes. I do have a ton of images in folders backed up to Google Drive, for peace of mind. My focus would be in sorting through everything I have locally.
