How to check if a game is installed more than once, so that I can remove duplicates?



  • I've moved quite a few hard drives from past PCs & laptops into my current PC. Is there anyway to check if I've installed say... Hades on one of my previous laptops? Even if it's also installed to my PC hard drive as well.

    Basically, I would like to remove any duplicates to get back some drive space.

    I already have added each Steam library location from each hard drive into Steam.



  • If confronted to this problem, I'd do this:

    Take something that would map your hard drive like this https://windirstat.net/

    Games should be big chunks so they will appear as big cubes.

    And then its the long and boring job of listing what is on what harddrive, to then figure out what is duped.

    This solution would get any game, even those not installed in steamapps. But the comment is right, you could just look into the steamapps folder and 95% of games should be a folder in there.
