Windows 7: How to remove Duplicate Pictures

How to remove Duplicate Pictures

Using CCleaner, I created a text file of all my duplicate pictures. We had almost 3,000 duplicates thanks to my wife not knowing what she was doing. CCleaner does not allow you to select a group of specific folders to delete or anything, so you have to manually click all of them, except for the group you want to keep obviously. Luckily, they do allow you to save it as a text file.

So I'm hoping I can write a quick batch files that will remove the selected groups automatically. I'm just not sure how to do that. Or if someone knows of a Remove Duplicates app that actually allows you to select all of the duplicates except one.

Here is the structure of the text file if anyone can help:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1001.MOV C:\Users\Mike\Pictures\babypics\cellphone 14.0 MB 3/17/2012 6:02:15 PM
--------------------------------------------------------------------------`
There has to be an easier way to delete duplicates than selecting them individually. If there was just an option of selecting all of a group minus one. I mean, if their are duplicates, then give me an option to delete all of them except for one. Am I missing something in that logic?

Thanks
Mike

You can add custom locations to CCleaner.
