Duplicate files waste precious space on your computer’s hard drive, and make your backups bigger for no good reason. Today we will be sharing with a utility that helps you find and delete duplicate files from your PC. It comes with a clean installer and is named dupeGuru. It is a great application made for this very purpose.
It’s completely open-source and comes in three flavors:
The music and pictures editions are specialized for finding similar music files and pictures. 
Why the flavors:
  • The music edition will find the same song, even if they’re in different MP3 files encoded at different bitrates.
  • The pictures edition will find copies of the same photo even if they’ve been resized, rotated, or slightly edited. 
This utility uses a “fuzzy match” algorithm and can find files that are very similar and not just completely identical. The installer won’t attempt to drag any toolbar or other junk onto your system, and it isn’t even trying to up sell you to anything. The interface is simple, but easy to use open it, add a few folders or drives you want to scan, and click Scan. You’ll see a list of duplicate files, and you can easily select and delete the files you want to remove. Double-click a file in the list to open and examine it.

That's all for now!
