If file sizes match just compare hashes (Digest::MD5, Digest::MurmurHash).

I don't know anything about MurmurHash, but MD5 has a higher chance of collisions than more modern hash digests. While, in all likelihood, this will not be a problem for this kind of usage, i would still go the recommended path of using something like SHA256 or even better SHA3-512.
