Duplicate Files With Same Name - Get Rid?

Mar 20, 2010

I recently had to restore my XP system, everything appeared to be working great. I have been cleaning out duplicate pictures and such on my computer. Today I went to a search of all pictures on my computer. From there I do a List and sort by size, after that I click on images so I can see if there are duplicates on my files. There is duplicates of everything however when i look into the file containing the pictures or documents it shows that both of the items are in the same location. When I go to that location there is only one of the items. Does anyone know why my search is showing duplicates of everything however they have the same path.

I am at a loss as to why everything is duplicated on my computer, especially because when you look where they are located they are in the exact same files.

Duplicate Files Created?

Jun 13, 2008

Recently re-installed WXP after Computer Crash.

Copied "My Documents" folder from thumb drive to the computer
Noticed several folders in "My Documents" were missing so thought I didn't back up to the thumb drive often enough so figured they were lost in the crash.

Wasl looking for a file and was unsure in which folder it might be located so did a "search" and found it in "My Documents". Went back to the "My Documents" folder and it wasn't there so did another search. This is what I discovered:

I went into Windows Explorer and found "My Documents"

I went into "My Computer" and then the "C" drive and found Documents and Settings, Gary, My Documents in the tree

Merging Files - Duplicate Files

Oct 27, 2005

Over the years, I've saved a lot of backups of my files to various locations -- Hard Disks, Tape Backup, Zip Drives.Looking through the backups I see that I've backed up some files dozens of times. And some files only once or twice. Additionally, I've reorganized some files. So, for example, "auntbetty.jpg" might be in "My Pictures" in one backup, but in "My PicturesFamilyReunion 2003" in another. I would like to reformat my old backup media and begin to reuse it. But I don't want to accidently erase something that exists only on the backup. Is there a program that can scan all my media, figure out what files are duplicates, and automatically save only one version? Even if they are in different directories? What if there are multiple versions of the same file? Is there a utility that can "bundle" them together somehow, omitting exact duplicates but keeping together the old versions? All told, these backups comprise tens of thousands of files... no way I could go through them by hand!

True Duplicate Files - Delete?

Jul 18, 2006

I want to purge my system from "true" duplicate files. However, when I tried to do so in the past, I ran duplicate file finders, and deleted files which were supposedly duplicates. I then had to locate and reload a number of them because I began to have inconsistencies in my system. My system presently shows a large number of duplicates, but how can I be assured they are before I delete them?

Deleting Duplicate Files - Keeping Those Which Are Not Duplicated?

Aug 19, 2005

I'm running Windows XP, which has been fairly unstable as late, and thinking it might be because of an overful hard drive, I recently moved several gigabites of music etc. off my main drive (C and onto my second drive (F. Unfortunately, this now means that i'm wasting a fair bit of space on my F drive, as I already exported most-but-not-all of these files to my iTunes music files so I could put them easily onto my iPod. I'd like to free up this space again, but since the files are all in one large folder and not very well organised, it's gonna be a nightmare going through them all and just deleting the ones that are already in iTunes. Does anyone know a simple and effective way of deleting these duplicate files, but keeping ones that aren't duplicates where they are? I don't mind downloading freeware/shareware but I can't afford anything retail at the moment

Removed Duplicate Files - HP Screen Continuously Recycles

Sep 13, 2008

I ran program to i.d. multiple file copies and removed. Apparently I removed more than the extra copies. On next restart the HP screen comes up and continually recycles. I attempted to recover using the XP disc provided with the computer. About every 10th time I startup, the install screen appears and indicates that files are loading from the disc. Upon completion the "computer will restart/hit enter" screen appears, but the system shuts down. Called HP support, they told me to take to authorized service center "to change some settings".

Pro - Search... Turning Off Search Of Zip Files

Mar 28, 2006

is there a way in Windows XP to turned off searching in *.zip during the Search command? I search multiple network drives serveral times a day for files and do not need to search in the *.zip files. By searching the *.zip files the time is greatly increased. When I had Windows 2000 the search would take about 1 minute (did not search *.zip files) and now in Windows XP the search takes over 12 and half minutes (1079 *.zip files)
I did a test by making all the *.zip hidden and did the search again - averaged about 59 seconds. Unforunately, I have to leave the *.zip files as not hidden.
Any ideas?

Keep Getting Search When Opening Files?

Jul 7, 2005

For some reason tonight my computer decided that when I try to open a file by double clicking on a file icon, it brings up a search window with the little
wizard fellow. If I right click and open up the file that way, no problem. Just everytime I double click to open any file, I'm off to a search window with the subject of the search whatever file I was trying to open.

Search For ALL Jpeg Files?

Feb 1, 2006

I am still getting used to Windows XP's search feature. With my old Windows 98, if I simply put ".jpeg" in the top search line (with Local Hard drive for my choice of "look in"), the results would be hundreds of .jpeg files. And when I try it with XP there are only 8 .jpeg files listed.when I know there are hundreds on my computer? I am looking for a picture that I know I have, but not sure where it is and I don't recall the name I had it listed as.I also tried searching for .ico files just to see if that worked and it did, however,It listed a lot of .ico files, but not all of them.

Non-existent Files Found By Search

May 17, 2006

This is a new problem to me. I'm familiar with XP's search not finding files that actually exist (particularly when searching for files containing the specification) but this time it's finding files that, as far as I can see, don't exist. And it's doing it when searching for a file specification. Yes, I have view hidden files turned on.The only clue I have is that the files that do exist show the full path, e.g. C:LnDevetc while the files that don't exist show the path as etc. Search In is set to LnDev. Since I'm sending the results to a third party simply ignoring the bogus files isn't an option. So far the only 'solution' I've found is to set up a Win2K machine & conduct the search on it. Win2K shows the correct results, WinXP doesn't (verified on 2 machines)
