CCleaner is showing hundreds of these but I need to tick every one before trying to delete and then it does not always do so. I have 1 ssd and 2 HDD's which I want to deal with individualy ie I don.t want to delete anything that is part of my backup. Any suggestions please.

Can be fraught with danger if you are not sure what you are doing.

Thanks to both for the replies, best left alone on your advice, not a lot of disk space taken anyway.

Tried to green tick but that seems something yet to be sorted with the new format site.

I can see it but it changes from "is answer" to "not answer" but how I am supposed to post it I don't know.

Thanks jock1e, not a stupid mistake , it does work as demonstrated with this thread but not the simlest thing to understand.

I don't mind changes but what was wrong with the previous "tick as resolved" option

Duplicate Files Deleter is a simple, but effective tool to locate duplicate files in one or more selected search paths. It scans the files and compares them based on Byte for Byte Comparison, which ensures 100% accuracy. You can then choose to delete the selected duplicate or original files. The program is multi-threaded and performs scans quickly
