Duplicate files- The parasite of the hard disk
Files downloaded from the Internet occupy a valuable space on the hard disk space that must be released periodically. If you have many audio files in computer (music) and a collection of pictures is likely to be among them duplicates. Duplicates files are created by users or by the system.
A manual check to find duplicate files in your computer would last long, especially if the files are scattered all over your computer.
With programs for finding and removing duplicates you can detect duplicate files even if they have been renamed or have other size. The vast majority of programs for finding and removing duplicates are freeware. The only thing you need to do is download and install such a program.
The best thing would be to create a shortcut on your computer desktop or start bar to access the program easily.
Such programs provide access to several options with which you can quickly find duplicate files. You can move, delete or export a list of duplicate files (without the need to remove them).
With programs for finding and removing duplicates you can find duplicate photos even if they have undergone changes like size modified, color corrections or rescale. Most programs of this type allow access to all functions without having to register.
Most duplicate files are created by users. You download something from the Internet and then forget where you downloaded it so you will download again the same file. Accidental duplicates can be also created if there is more than one user of the same computer. You copy or download files from an external device or from Internet and the other user/users do the same thing with the same files. There is also another way of creating unnecessary duplicates. Renaming a file or folder and then forgetting about doing that will determinate the user/ users to download or copy the same files on the hard disk. Duplicate files will load the space of the hard disk useless and not having enough space will affect the proper functioning of the operating system.
The software developed for finding and deleting duplicates do not require advanced knowledge to work with these programs. Both free and paid versions of this program are regularly updated. No need to buy a program that does the same things as the free versions but they look a little better.
