Find Duplicate files on network hard drive

Hi folks

I want to find duplicate files on my network drive, i know how to do it on local drive, I use an application called Auslogics Duplicate File Finder, but the problem is that this app only detects local drives (C), it doesn't detect my network drive.

How can i find duplicate files on my network hard drive?
are there some applications to do so? or windows itself can do it?

Thanks

i managed to detect and remove duplicate files on my network hard drive... although it took a long time to first scan and then remove... however, it was worth the time....

Thanks pebbly...
