  • Hey Denis,

    There isn´t a direct answer to your question I think, but I´ve seen two things that may help you.

    1. Try a Search Query on the MOSS search databases.  This has been detailed here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sharepointsearch/thread/8a8b25d9-a3ac-45df-86de-2a3a7838a534
    2. Use a feature to look for duplicate items.  I´ve never used this and cant vouch for its reliability, but I´ve seen one returned in several search results, leading here: http://www.sharepoint-insight.com/2010/12/22/find-duplicate-items-in-sharepoint/

    Hope they help
