Duplicates are files that appear on a computer in more locations, unnecessarily taking up hard disk space and slowing down file searches.
Duplicate finders are meant to scan predefined folders and locate the clone files, then display a report or automatically remove the dupes.
However, it should be noted that users might not want to erase all duplicate items because some of them might have backup purposes.
This is why most of duplicate finders will offer users the possibility to manually erase the redundant items.
Additionally, some of these applications might target only a certain type of files, such as text files, images, videos or songs, providing users with advanced filters and settings for correctly identifying duplicate items.
