KickStart to Find and Delete True Duplicate Files

Recommended Posts

asgarcymed

I want to create an AutoIt script able to search for true duplicate files (same SIZE + same MD5 HASH/CHECKSUM), and after deleting clones.

Main features: filters to include and/or exclude files and/or folders; total recursive search; automatic deletion of duplicate files according to previously defined rules.

Getting each file's size is relatively easy; unlike getting MD5... Maybe an external ActiveX=COM component could help getting MD5?

The script can write a CSV file with:

Full Path,Size,MD5

But, how to read such CSV file in order to find {same SIZE +(,) same MD5}

Do you have any general guidelines/tips how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.
