Program to match and merge files

  1. Is there a free program out there that will search my computer for duplicate files of the same name and merge them or ask me if I want to delete one or the other of them?

    Total Commander match duplicates and merge

    Total Commander matches files and give a nice neat list. I'd try a small folder example though. Duplicate file finders like Duplicate FREE Edition can give you a sample of how confusing it is to read those. Total Commander has a forum, so you can ask them about the merge. I used it yesterday, but I didn't merge; they do have 'arrow right' so I guess that is merge, too. TC uses plug-ins, is free, and you register, if you want to. Try SyncbackSE, 2brightsparks.com, for the MD5 hash so you won't have to guess the search, although TC has a plug-in for that too. Let me know if this works; I can't do it because my computer is unstable from a virus.

    Total Commander Dups

    I found a compare files listing in Total Commander. It gave me an error. Please terminate program Lister (.wlx). My lister add plug-ins is blank though. It also said missing dll's.

    the filenames were different "capture.bin" and "install.exe" in the root directory. It pulled up 1 file difference in Kerio firewall.

    Try Directory Report
    www dot file-utilities dot com/downloads/wdir.zip

    It can find duplicate files based on the same name, size, CRC and/or comparing byte by byte

    If can compare and synchronize two directories
    Is this what you mean by merge?

    It can generate reports to a printer and to files
    It has many options so you can customize it the way you like
