Club MacMost Exclusive: Terminal Command to Find Duplicate Files

Here's the command I show in the video. You probably want to adjust the size (2M) and remember to start in the directory where you want the search to take place. Your Home folder or Documents folder is a good place. Or, maybe at the top level of an external archive drive. <blockquote><em><strong>find . -type f -size +2M -exec cksum {} ; | tee /tmp/tempfilelist.tmp | cut -f 1,2 -d ' ' | sort | uniq -d | grep -hif - /tmp/tempfilelist.tmp | sort -nrk2 | awk -F Ā '$1!=x&amp;&amp;x{print ""}{x=$1}1'</strong></em></blockquote>
