On a Windows based system I use the following,
The latest version Googles Picasa
After it scans the drive(s) for videos, it displays thumbnails by folder for your review. You can click on a thumbnail for a rough playback to further determine the video content; sort the files by drag and drop, and allows alternate tags to them for future searches and sorts. It also has a level of face recognition technology allowing you to tag contents based on people in them.
I also use a program called Duplicate Cleaner
This program scans files for selectable parameters. It presents a list of possible duplicate files in sectioned form that you can click and run to confirm true duplicate status and delete those you dont need.
Both have helped me maintain my file library.<span id=”_marker”></span>
