Free hard disk drive space
Duplicate files take a lot of space and can be a headache to locate, but with this software, this is as simple as a click on a button. The software doesn’t just locate files with the same name but also files with the same content.
How Duplicate File Finder works
Before you can understand how it works, you need to know, how are the duplicate files generated. Duplicate files that take a lot of space are mostly generated by the OS (Microsoft Windows) as part of how it works to protect the files against accidental deletion or during the process of installing software.
For example, sometimes Windows installs two drivers for the same hardware one is the 64-bit version and the other the 32-bit version, but your device only uses one, so the other is just a duplicate.
Duplicate File Finder locates similar files, first, you specify the disk you need to scan after the scanning phase is done you will be presented with a list formatted in pairs, all you need to do is choose the file to be deleted by selecting the checkbox, then simply click Delete. That is it, you are done, by doing so you can free a lot of space.
