A file indexer based on content hashes to quickly find duplicate files on your system. I created this tool because I always forget which pictures from my phone I already uploaded to my Dropbox account. Now I can just upload all pictures to an uploads directory check these files against the index and only organize the remaining files.

As easy as..

pip install hashdex
hashdex add /path/to/my-main-pictures-directory
hashdex check --rm /path/to/my-uploads-directory


  • create an index of your files
  • find duplicate files on your filesystem
  • check if files in a directory are already indexed


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
