Please help me collect and organize my files.

Specs: XP, P4
Truly, I have been trying hard to overcome this problem but no hope.
My problem is that I own three computers and my files/folders are so spread between them as I use to copy my hardisk to the new PC. Some files are newly added and some modified and some newly created on each computer separately.
Now, I want to have all files/folders collected from the three PCs without repeating the files/folder.
If I copy each hardisk independantly, 90% of the files would be repeated.
I have tried to seek some file mangement software but no luck.
Would anyone kindly knows a step by step idea of how to do collect the data to one hardisk without duplicates and only add the newer files?
Thank you so much in advance and God bless

No they are not netwaorked but I am prepare to network them if this solves the problem.
Or I can have all the files/folders on one computer, then what to do?
Al least every file is repeated 7 or 8 times due too much changhing computers and they would total aprox 60 GB
Thanks Johnw

See what you think of this way.
1: Use Everything, give it a minute to populate.
2: Click on File, then Export.
3: Save on your desktp as a text file.
4: Repeat on computers 2 & 3.
5: Copy & Paste the results of computers 2 & 3 into computer 1 results.
6: Now use your compare utility, maybe in your file manager, or use one from my selection.

Maybe using compare, won't work, probably sorting the combined text file alphabetically, use your text program, or this.
