I had a problem with too many backups from our personal data (Photos,videos etc.)
Always I had 1-2 hard drives to backup all important files every time.
Too many duplicates!!

So I created a batch file that for every image-video file type in my backup , will move only one in a new folder, sorted by daytime taken and in a folder of that year, then it renamed all with the datetime of the file.

Now I have a great backup sorted by year in folders since 2003. Just saved me from 2 terabyte duplicates and I have now 600gb sorted backup files!

    could need that too. Got thousands of photos and videos from all our smartphones. WhatsApp is the devil because of the duplicates it creates for me when I send a Foto/video to my wife.

    I use tar incremental backups
