Of mice and men and ftp space

(famous last words) I mean no harm but...

Have you noticed there's an awful amount of ftp space wasted due to either duplication or files that aren't "programming or cracking stuff"?

Example: In the ftp's "download" area I found the following duplicates:

BCGControlBar Library v6.33 Uploaded_By_NightLight

Compuware.DevPartner.Studio.Professional.Edition.v7.2_Uploaded_by_Cadarin Durango




... and in the "incoming" folder:

Intel Math Kernel Library_uploaded_by_MARZBAN (already in ftp)
PEBrowse_Professional v7.0.2_WinALL_uploaded_by_sf42 (available from author's webpage)
PEBrowse_Professional_Interactive_7.4.2_WinALL_uploaded_by_sf42 (available from author's webpage)
Powerbasic.v7.04 (I think already in ftp)

... lastly, I don't think this files should be in the ftp:

CRC Press - Forensic Engineering Investigation
Mathematica 5.0 - uploaded by sort

Maybe the rules should include a note about "check if the software you're about to upload already is in the ftp"

Comments anyone?

Thanks for your suggestion. But only Aaron has the admin rights to delete dupe files.
