Is there a way to search for duplicate multiple files?

I would like to find files that there is more than one copy of in Egnyte. Some files have ended up in more than one folder or filed incorrectly and I would like an easier way to find these and move them to the correct folder or delete the duplicate.

It would be awesome to be able to have an integrated duplicate file finding service built into Egnyte. I'm confident such a system already has fairly advanced hashing and linking systems to minimize storage of indentical files.

Additionally, aside from just identical files, it would be nice to have a way to identify duplicate audio files and images which may have different meta data but the actual image/audio is identical. (i.e. mp3's that are identical in content but have different ID2 tags)

Hi Michael,

I agree this would be a handy feature. While uploading a file, I sometimes have the feeling that I've put the same document in a different folder before. 

I'll bring this up with our product managers. Thanks for the helpful suggestion.
