    I’ve used duplicate file finders. Just make sure what areas on your computer you are searching for dups. though. I would not recommend the Windows folder, that’s for sure. You could possibly delete duplicate files that are needed to run the computer.
    Be sure to set the searches for EXACTLY the same file, size, name, etc. I’ve had bad experiences using dup file finders in the past. They can be a valuable tool, but use with caution.
