Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )
Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.
Can we have some specific way to:
1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)
Great suggestion and something we’re looking into. Thank you!
I suggest to use Duplicate Files Deleter its a helpful program.
The best program I used to delete duplicate files it is DuplicateFilesDeleter, It is easy and its result is excellent, I suggest you try it.
We have "Duplicate Files Deleter" is our system optimization and a simple, but effective tool to locate 'Duplicate Files' in one or more selected search paths - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space.
It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded and performs scans quickly.

Instead of a simple or modified search, have a bandits tab, for a maintenance button in settings that are out-of-the-way or fingerprint protected That runs a search routine that shows a parent duplications, where you can choose to delete all, do an itemized deletion, tag a folder as a back up folder, or tag a picture as a back up picture or file. Maybe this maintenance option can be a part of a flagging or finger press hold down system where he sub menu pops up? I understand this type of system would be for the lazy that just keeps a large conglomeration of files, but in our education it tends to run backwards to learning new systems. So being a better organizer is usually the last thing to occur. That is why we need the maintenance routine.

There doesn't seem to be a tick selector on the photo's and somehow I have managed to duplicate most of my photos! I don't want to have to manually go through them all to delete the duplicates , so PLEEEEEEASE, can you sort this out for me, ASP???!!!
Find and remove duplicate files and folders on your drives and cloud storages fast and safely.
Have File Resource monitor report like feature.
Could be per user or for the whole admin.
then you could find dupicates not only for one user but for the whole Company AND also find maybe BIG files or "not allowed" files lurking at your Companys file-storage (although it does not take any storage at your own servers you ar still liable for its content).
that will be useful
I just turned off the sync setting and auto upload for Onedrive. I save to the cloud manually which is not that big a deal since I don't take pictures often. Everything with Windows for me, is a pain **********. Never should have purchased a Windows phone. Sorry, didn't mean to rant...lol

make sure their is a select file to keep and that it can be run manually . also incorporate a duplicate photo finder and it would also be nice if there was a way that eliminated duplicates from being backed up

Just two cents... This is not a problem on Windows Phone. My wife has over 50,000 photos and has never had a problem. As for other apps duplicating photos, that is the problem of the app saving a copy of he image, not OneDrive's fault.

It's a great idea, but I suggest a "bit level comparison" (example: file hash comparison); in this way even if you have different photo name, different creation/modification date but equal photos, they could be discovered and marked as duplicated.

Don't send duplicates and triplicates and quadricaplites and fivedriplicates and son on and so forth.
I use to remove duplicate Orderprog Duplicate File Finder http://orderprog.com/remove-duplicates-all.php
Would be great for iCloud to recognize duplicate photos and not download duplicate photos.
Thnx for writing all that out for me
