Is your computer a little sluggish? You can speed it up and free up space just by getting rid of duplicate files. Most people save a lot of music, photos and videos to their computers, and it's easy to accidentally save more than one copy. If that happens too often, you could clog up your computer with a bunch of extra files you don't need.

That's why you should check out this free program that goes through your computer to find all of those duplicates so you can get rid of them and free up space for stuff you actually want.

You can search through an unlimited number of files on your computer. The program searches through basically all the file types on your computer, including commonly duplicated file types, like music, video and photo files.

Don't worry about accidentally deleting files you want to keep. The program has a built-in file viewer that lets you see what it has flagged before you decide what to do with it. You can also exclude specific files or folders from the search.
