I'm just realising the huge amount of duplicate photos stored in various programs on my computer - Windows Media Player, Real Player, Picasa to name but a few! They seem to have just up-loaded all my photos automatically. They must be taking up a lot of space - and slowing things down generally. My main photo store in in "My Pictures" with a back-up copy in a separate hard drive.
Can I safely delete all these other copies of my photos, keeping the programs of course, for future use, and still leave the "My Pictures" folder intact?
Can I also prevent these programs from up-loading photos until I choose otherwise?
