    BC3 does not have a de-duplicate scan; our Folder Compare aligns two locations side by side by file name. There are some dedicated tools out there. I would recommend searching "Duplicate File Finder" to find various solutions. One such I've found is an older blog post here:

    Can BC be used as a de-duplicator?

    I've used Beyond Compare to compare folders and files, but I have a client that needs her hard drive analyzed for file duplication.

    BC is "close", but I can't think of a way to make it work as a de-duplicator, but it is close enough I thought I'd ask.

    And if not, any recommendations for deduplication software?
