Windows 7 remove those duplicate files on my hard drive.


Windows 7 remove those duplicate files on my hard drive.

Duplicate files can be a real nuisance to the organization of your PC. They take up unnecessary room, and can be a headache when trying to find the right version. This tip will take you through how to delete these files and take the power back from your clogged up hard drive.

It’s simpler than you might think to get rid of duplicate files, and doesn’t even require you to download external software.

To get started hold the windows button on the keyboard and hit “F” at the same time.

Search bar

This will open the search program. Type in the file that you suspect to be duplicated. On the toolbar, click “views” and then “details”.


Scroll down the list and look for files with the same name. If the date modified is the same in two that appear to be the same then the chances are that you can delete one of them.
