Finding duplicate files

My compnay is moving to Windchill and wants to search and clean up our current files for duplicate before bulkloading. Is there a specific program out there that would work best to do this? For example our engineering team would like to know where any file named asm001.asm would be located in a folder and all subfolders. At this point the only functionality needed would be to find files on a network drive. Any deleting or renaming would be done through Creo or Windows Explorer.

Re: Finding duplicate files

Engineers bulk loaded the files and fixed each problem when they arose. There is probably a script that can be run which could be a better solution.

Re: Finding duplicate files

The DOS command "DIR * /S > file.txt" comes to mind where the file can be sorted in Excel for identification, and find in the original output file to know its location. Someone with some programming background can probably automate the entire process by searching out and sorting only eligible PTC files with all the information you need.
