well, its not dire but i do need some assistance. i have a somewhat extensive mp3 collection (legal of course) but i have downloaded multiples of many many songs. awhile back i read something about a program that would search your comp for multiple file names but i have long since deleted that program and then forgotten the name. i need to know the name if anyone can help me out.

I believe there is an option in System Mechanic to get rid of duplicate files. Yes " Clean up error-causing and space-wasting duplicate files and drivers. Easily find duplicate files on your system to be removed." This is not free ware, but it also isnt too expensive. http://www.iolo.com/sm/ I believ there may be other programs out there, like BenchmarX or something...used to be on the maxpc cd...BMX i think...I think it had the same option under tools....I will look around though and see if there are other good solutions.

Use Window Media player and add all the files to its database. Then go to the library and select "All Audio" and it will list all of your songs. You then have to select Song name or Filename to sort in alphabetical order. Scroll down the list to see if there are dups. Make a list of the dups and delete as necessary.
