way too many photos (well over 100,000) stored in an unorganized mess-
many are dupes- too many to confirm each dupe being deleted.
I REALLY DON'T WANT THE SOFTWARE DELETING NON-DUPES!!!
I often shoot raw+jpg, but sometimes just jpg. I want to keep raw+jpg if I have both.
I'm guessing I have about 40k-50k original photos.
Dupes are across different drives on 1 pc
Many times DIFFERENT shots share exact the same file-name.
Many times I shoot lots of exposures that vary a just little (think HDR)
pc is quad core with 16gb ram, so no slouch
I did get lightroom4 for birthday (not installed yet), and have installed not used picasa, in case either of those can do this. If not, what (prefer freeware) software can I use to either scan my drives and delete the dupes
or copy jpg, or raw+jpg of each to amy NEW 3tb usb3.0 drive I bought.
(I also have dupe mp3s, and dupe "My Documents" but that's just a side thought)
thank you sooo much for helping me with this painful task. I just want to do ANYTHING BESIDES DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM. But it's out of hand and MUST be handled.
