Program Needed to Identify Multiple Copies of the Same File on My PC

I'm looking for a program for Windows 7 which will scan my computer and enable me to identify multiple copies of the same file on my system. Once identified, it will either prompt me to delete the extra copies or do it for me automatically. Thanks.

Hello ESL,

Duplicate cleaner and Duplicate & Same Files Searcher are a couple of good free programs to find duplicate files with. You might give them a try to see how they may work for you. :)

Thanks, Shawn. I tried both, both are good, but my favourite of the two is the Duplicate & Same Files Searcher. I was successfully able to remove around 500 duplicate mp3 files from my system. :)
