Finder: maybe the best free duplicate file finder program (via: Mac-Forums Discussions)

Every once in a while you’re looking for a solution to a problem, and slap yourself to the head that you’ve been overlooking a real obvious solution.
This case: finding duplicate files on Mac OS X.
pendlewitch had this great tip: use the Finder!
You can do this in Finder for free, it’s a bit time consuming but if you’ll get them all eventually.
- Open a new Finder window
- In the search field, enter the wild card asterisk symbol *
- Arrange by Size
I find it best in List view.
Prepare to be gobsmacked at how much duplication you do have.
I totally agree with his last sentence (:
