Find Large Number of Duplicate Files on Your Computer


You might have come across the problem of identifying and removing the duplicate files in your computer. These duplicates file could be created by yourself or by some applications. If the number of  files to be identified is in small amount then you can do it manually. But if it is bulk then this process will be time consuming and boring. 


I am sure there are number of applications available to perform this task, but of those "Duplicate Commander" deserves to be near the top of that list.
