Question / Problem

is there a way to deduplicate files. for example when i move duplicate files to new location, only one copy will be generated inthe new location and links to this copy will be in the original locations.

Answer / Solution

Once you used the search type "Duplicate Files" of the TreeSize Professional File search then you will be able to replace all duplicate files by a hardlinks to single file using the right click menu. This is pretty much you are asking for, there would be no benefit in moving them first as long as they are already on one disk. Please check the help file on more details on deduplication.
