Is there a way for the computer/a program to search for multiple duplicate files on a computer?

I also remember a program that used a pie chart to show you what is taking up the most space on the computer? What files and folders?

Help!

FileLight is a good visual approach to showing storage use on a file and directory basis. It takes a little getting used to, as far as navigating goes, but I love using it to clean up junk.

SequoiaView is a pretty awesome little visual mapper.

Oh, and on the off chance that you're interested in FlieLight but are hobbled by limitation to Windows, I give you KDE-Cygwin.

SpaceMonger looks like Sequoi View for windows.

DiskPie is what you want. It's from PC Magazine I think. Maps all of the files on your drive into a pie chart.

TreeSize Pro. Simply the best hard-drive-space-dealie there is.

I've used More Space for years. It will locate duplicate files, large files, large folders, unused files, temp files etc. It's pretty handy.
