Re: [PLUG] finding duplicate files

I generally prefer finddup to fdupes because it has the option to 
automatically hardlink identical files, whereas fdupes only has the option to 
delete duplicates.  Even if that's what I wanted to do, fdupes can't know 
which of the duplicates I would prefer to keep and which to remove.  If I want 
to remove duplicates, I'd prefer just to know which files they are and delete 
the unwanted ones manually.
