Click "Download Plugin" then click Open or Run to install
This plugin checks all the media records in your project and compares the files linked to them looking for files which are identical it will pick up both records which are linked to the same file and to those where the names are different, but the contents are the same.
When complete it returns a result set containing the matching records.
By selecting each pair in turn, just drag over both cells, you can then select Edit>Merge Compare Records from the menu and merge the records together.
Once the process is complete, it is recommended to use the "Check for Unlinked Media" plugin to clean up any duplicate files.
V1.1 Add trap for Missing Files and report them on the Result Set.
V1.2 Add Caching of File details between runs
V1.3 Correct Issue with clearing the Cache (Thanks Mike)

Ran and then came up with error message, "not enough memory. No changes have been made to data records."
