    I was always trying the best way to delete my duplicate files, but always something was piling the storage again. So I find efficient software (DuplicateFilesDeleter) to complete remove the duplicate data. I suggest it to anyone with this problem.

    Great program! Wish it had a filter to exclude files under a certain size. I’m using this to clean up disc space, so its great if it would only report size > 1MB, etc.

    Fdupes is a great tool.

    Is it possible to specify which of 2 folders is sacrificial?

    So, If I have 2 folders A & B and run Fdupes on them, I want any duplicate to be automatically deleted from B.

    however it isn’t able to determine which files are needed and which can be safely deleted.

  7. Ralph Obein says:

    Please note it is not safe to remove all the duplicates CCleaner finds. The Duplicate Finder can search for files with the same File Name, Size, Modified Date and Content; however it isn’t able to determine which files are needed and which can be safely deleted.

    Try using Duplicate Files Deleter
