“No Dupe” easily removes Duplicate Files in Windows 7

One of the most daunting tasks for a naive user of computer PC or laptop using any Windows OS is to find and remove duplicate files in Windows 7. They occupy lot of hard-disk space and it’s annoying when you try to explore files, as they same file may crop up multiple times, if it’s a duplicate. This problem is more when you search MP3 files, as the same song may be played again and again if it’s a duplicate.

My favourite feature in “No Dupe” freeware app is that it can tell you which directories are the exact copy of each other, and even find duplicate MP3 songs, if they don’t share the same tags.
