Tidy up your filesystem with FSlint

It's a very useful tool, but the interface sucks. This simple free old Windows program does it better: http://www.geocities.com/hirak_99/goodies/finddups.html It lets you select an entire directory at once, and it will remove all duplicates within that directory, recursively. It lets you automatically mark all but one of each duplicate, too. FSlint forces you to manually check each file, which is impossible tedious if you're trying to delete thousands of files.
