Are there any tools with XP Home Edition that will search for duplicate
files?

    Do bear in mind that the mere fact that a file exists in duplicate (or even
    more than that) does not mean that the extra copies are unnecessary.

    Hi,

    Why? Many system files are duplicated, and it is important to leave them in
    place. What are you trying to accomplish?

    You may use NoClone to seach and remove duplicates. It is true
    Byte-by-Byte comparison and search duplicate file contents regardless
    of file name.
