"Matching" is by name only...
Authored by: gabester on Sep 14, '05 01:14:53PM

(This should be self evident to any long-time user of the Finder.)

I'd hoped that this would somehow magically work to delete files with identical data... i.e. if I have "Image_001.jpg" in folder A and move it to folder B where "My vacation.jpg" - a renamed but otherwise identical version of the file existed.

So be forwarned, if you have 2 files with the same name but different data, say "Notes.txt" in your "Home Ec Class" and "Molecular Biology" folders, and you move the "Notes.txt" file to Molecular Biology, then there go your notes about mitochondria, replaced by how long to boil an egg...
