I have a real mess of duplicates on LR, and none have commercial value, plus a lot of the good ones are saved on other hard drives, so I need to clear my current 19k stack of photos of duplicates, most are RAW
and of considerable size. I had a popup duplicate removal show up the last time I updated my LR, but it
got away from me.
I hope one of you gurus has advice for this.

Many thanks

You want one that works within Lightroom itself. Try this one: How do I clean up duplicate photos?
Thanks. I got the dup finder working, but everything went into a collection that won't allow deleting. Is there some way to do this? I have an embarrassing number of dupes.

Follow the instructions in the post Herb. Mark the ones you're going to get rid of as rejects, then delete at the end, using the instructions at the end of the post.
