Hello,

I need a tool that can compare at least two folder and show me duplicates.
needed functionality:
- search result can be sorted by name and by size
- size is shown like in "df -h" (so depending on the size in bytes/MB/GB…)
- files can be selected by using checkboxes, the selected removed then
- don't do / do a byte by byte check when the hash is the same

would be nice:
- other actions than delete e.g. move
- applying pattern/criteria (like size) for auto-selecting search results

cream on the top:
"look at these 10 folders remove duplicates and put all remaining files into folder <name>"

Code:
fdupes -rnS /home/xxx/openmw*

3145772 bytes each:
/home/xxx/openmw/Splash/Splash_Siltstriker.tga
/home/xxx/openmw_new/Splash/Splash_Siltstriker.tga
/home/xxx/openmw_2015-03-22/Splash/Splash_Siltstriker.tga

3145772 bytes each:
/home/xxx/openmw/Splash/Splash_Daedroth.tga
/home/xxx/openmw_new/Splash/Splash_Daedroth.tga
/home/xxx/openmw_2015-03-22/Splash/Splash_Daedroth.tga

401462 bytes each:
/home/xxx/openmw/_MFC_6.2_Runtime_S_NSR_PL_544____WINSYSDIR__1/MSVCP60.DLL
/home/xxx/openmw_new/_MFC_6.2_Runtime_S_NSR_PL_544____WINSYSDIR__1/MSVCP60.DLL

278581 bytes each:
/home/xxx/openmw/_MFC_6.2_Runtime_S_NSR_PL_544____WINSYSDIR__1/Msvcrt.dll
/home/xxx/openmw_new/_MFC_6.2_Runtime_S_NSR_PL_544____WINSYSDIR__1/Msvcrt.dll

28529 bytes each:
/home/xxx/openmw/_Engine_Engine_Files/corecomp.ini
/home/xxx/openmw_new/_Engine_Engine_Files/corecomp.ini

The fdupes command from app-misc/fdupes does half of what I want but I can not do a selection, the size is shown in bytes which doesn't really help to spot the big-space-wasters… Telling me directories which have the same content would be cool too, so I'd remove that folder and not have to click the checkbox for ~1000 files first.

Something like sys-apps/pyrenamer just for looking and handling duplicate files.

Is there a linux tool like that?



PS: I apologise if this is the wrong section, please move the thread where it belongs in that case.
