In order to find large duplicate files in a specific directory structure, use a command of this form.
deduper [OPTION] ... [DIR]
Command line options include:
Specifies the minimum size in bytes for a file to be
considered “large”. The default is 100,000
bytes. The value must be a number, optionally followed by
a units specifier: “
m” for millions,
g” for billions. This
code is case-insensitive.
For example, the option “
--size=2.5M” would consider only files of 2,500,000 bytes or
DIR argument specifies a root
directory to be searched for duplicates. The default value is
.”, the current working directory.
The standard output of the script is a report displaying zero or
more sets of duplicate files. Each set starts with a separator
----”, followed by the
sizes and path names of the duplicates in that set. Here is
some sample output showing a group of two duplicates and a
group of three:
---- 109682 /u/shipman/www/soft/hueyims/good-huey 109682 /u/shipman/www/soft/hueyims/huey.py ---- 169923 /u/shipman/www/soft/isoents/isoents.ent 169923 /u/shipman/www/soft/rnc/isoents.ent 169923 /u/shipman/www/soft/tracecase/isoents.ent
