How can I best compare files inside a folder?

I understand what the desktop.ini file is. My problem is, when I try to compare two folders on two different hard drives, they sometimes come up with different file counts. I go digging around and finally figure out that they have the exact same files, except one folder is counting these .ini files.

I need to be able to compare folders file for file to see where my exact duplicates are, so I can merge files, delete copies, and clean up my hard drives.

Please help me figure out a way to do this without opening all the sub folders and comparing every file by sight.
