I've copied the contents of my Disk Station (soon to be made redundant as I need the hard drive for something else) to my new server, and I notice there's a huge number of duplicate directories files etc. In other words a huge mess taking up space.
At present I'm running this command (amended for my own circumstances);
#cd /mymounts/d2p1/users/nshares/public/diskstation
#nohup fdupes -1frq * > /mymounts/d2p1/users/nshares/public/diskstation.txt &

Is this going to work?
And is there a better way? Obviously if it works, thats fine. But its going to take time!

Looks like its working (fingers crossed) as I have a "diskstation.txt" in /public
