There are some semi-automated steps. (1) What is a duplicate file - Same name, same size, same date, same hash. (2) What is going to be the standard you will be comparing to. There are command line utilities that can compare subdirectories, A little programming can delete the duplicates and move the remainder to the standard list, Also renaming the near duplicates for retention or manual comparison.
