Clearing files from old software on external drive

Thanks to the help in a recent post, I am now successfully deleting duplicate files on my external drives - from backups made from two previous dying machines.

I now need to clear old software and other debris from the drives, so I just have photo, video and MS Office files. Is there any software that will do this at present?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I see what you mean, but it's the way I wrote it!!!!

The backup drives have debris from other software, applications and windows......it's not just photos, videos and Office files, but loads of other rubbish as well that the old machines transferred over to the drives.
