I suppose one could ask the same question about files generally;
how to tag or delete duplicates.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

I have a problem similar to Timothy's. If I run "md5sum *" on a folder, in a terminal, it lists all the sums. My problem is that I have several thousand files. Is there some way I can output the results to a text file? Can't copy and paste unless there's some way for me to adjust the terminal to allow the last several thousand lines to display. Then I'm also going to have to sort all those lines into some alphabetical order to reasonably detect duplicate sums. Any ideas?
