You run the application and select the drives where you want to search for duplicates; alternatively, you can select particular folders where you want the search to be conducted.

You can also add other file attributes to the search; these attributes include file format, content, size, creation date, modification date, and more.

    You have to use universal duplicate file removers with care! Double check the files you want to delete. If you don't know why the file is there, do not delete it, it may by required by some program to run properly.
    Feel free to delete duplicate video, music or photo files, but make sure they are really duplicates and not just the links to the same file (some old duplicate finders can't recognize links).
    I can suggest two tool for safe duplicate file removal: and They deal with music and photo files only and are aware about ntfs links.
