need to remove duplicate files

Hello rvpooley

My name is Billy.

PC Junktion is dedicated to finding solutions to those pesky computer problems.
Since you know what kind of files your are searching for, In XP, Windows Search Companion makes it easy to find duplicate files with the file search utility.

There are also many fine and free programs for accomplishing this mechanical feat. Let's first look at the Window's utility.

Create a Folder on My Desktop by right clicking and select new folder. Name this folder "Mixed up files" or something you can remember. It will be on your desktop.

GOTO->START->(menu pops up)->Click Search(magnigfying glass icon)->All Files and Folders->
Stop and take this in.
Text files will end in .txt, word docs end in .doc or (2007) .docx
picture files will most likely be .jpg, .bmp, .gif, or .png.

We are going to use a wildcard search. An asterisk(*) represents the filename ina wildcard search.

For example in the [All or part of the filename] Box, we can search for ALL files of that flavor.
Type these wildcards in the first box exactly or copy and paste.
*.txt; *.jpg; *.gif; *.bmp; *.png;

LOOK IN: Drop Down Box-> CLICK->My Computer

Click Search. Be patient, there may be more than you know of...

Wait for the utility to finish.

GOTO Edit in the Toolbar and choose Select All. Move to the folder you created in My documents.

You know have them in one folder (on your Desktop) and now I will find a utility to handle the job.
You may want to back up to a DVD or CD in case of a crash.

I will be back tomorrow.

Hope this helps for now.
