If you work with files across multiple hard drives, you’ll quickly note that you end up saving the same files in different locations, most likely by mistake. After a few months of saving your work, short of spending a few hours carrying out some system cleansing and maintenance, your system will become more disjointed and you’ll wonder why some files are located in particular folders.
You could use the Windows Search tool to find and locate duplicates. It’s not the best search tool available and you’ll need to be able to compare one drive to another or one folder to a backup folder in order to synchronise your files or establish if you accidentally stored or duplicated your files across your drives.
Another option is a tool that is designed to find duplicate files. Duplicate Cleaner will analyse your drives and will locate duplicate files and documents. You can then choose the files you want to remove from a particular hard drive.
