    Hi, Is there such a program as a free duplicate photo finder out there for download? I have a ton of duplicate photos on my hard drive and need to delete them. Thanks.

    You dont need a program, just search for the files.
    Start/Search then type in *.jpg and it will list the files and their location
    :)

    Is this means that this files are replicas of the originals?
    Can I safely delete all these files?
    I found more that 5000. ? :eek:

    Don't delete them all, only the duplicates.

    Look at the file size of the duplicates too because if you did something to one of them and saved it in another place under the same name you want to make sure you don't delete the wrong one. Don't want to delete the ones you edit do ya?
