```There were errors in the code I posted. Here it is again.

Lines <- "Date            time            value
20110620        11:18:00        7
20110620        11:39:00        9
20110621        11:41:00        8
20110621        11:40:00        6
20110622        14:05:00        8
20110622        14:06:00        6
"

library(zoo)
library(chron)
z <- zoo(DF\$value, chron(unclass(as.Date(format(DF\$Date), "%Y%m%d")), DF\$time))
isdup <- duplicated(dates(time(z)), fromLast = TRUE)
z[!isdup]

and here is what it looks like when you run it:

> Lines <- "Date            time            value
+ 20110620        11:18:00        7
+ 20110620        11:39:00        9
+ 20110621        11:41:00        8
+ 20110621        11:40:00        6
+ 20110622        14:05:00        8
+ 20110622        14:06:00        6
+ "

9                   8                   6
