Running Kubuntu 17.04.

Have a lot of duplicates - pictures and music and documents.

Does Dolphin have the ability to detect duplicates and present them for further processing like deleting?

Like what Google Contacts does?

If not Dolphin, is there any other good GUI tool to do the same?

  • @user26687 My question was primarily about Dolphin. Not just any tool to find duplicates. However, if Dolphin was not able to do it, I was asking for other options. To that extent, it is not a duplicate.
