Duplicate Files

  Angry Kid 19:45 20 Jun 2006


I wonder if anyone can help me with a query?

At present I have two seperate accounts set up on my pc (Wife and myself) and was wondering if there was a program available (Free) that would scan the pc for any duplicate files and if so would say if they were ok to delete without crashing the system?

Look forward to hearing from you guys.

There's a good FREE program called Easycleaner which will look for duplicates and unnecessary files. click here

I have seen that but is it safe to remove the duplicate files from both accounts without having a severe/debilitating effect on my pc as I also read it can be severe when cleaning.

I have used Easycleaner for donkeys years to clear unnecessary files and also to clean out the registry and have never had any problems from using it.
However, I have not used it to clear Duplicate files so cannot vouch if it would be safe or not.
I think it would depend exactly what the files are and where they are stored.
If the files are required for some kind of program then the program would have to be able to find them.
For example, if you have a Mail program (Outlook Express?)in two different accounts then you would need either duplicate e-mails or a common storage folder for the E-mails otherwise the program would never find them when required.
It all depends on the files and how they are to be used.
If you have two garden sheds then you either need a hammer in each shed or a common tool box in the middle.
Hope this helps.
