How To Find And Remove The Duplicate Files In Windows

Over time we tend to store large amounts of documents, images and other general files that often end duplicate or triplicate. Especially in the case of images this problem is high. Mostly it is impossible to know whether this is the same file at first glance , since both the location and the file name may be different. So we are not aware of this duplicity and thereby these files consume space on the hard drive.

Application To Find And Remove The Duplicate Files :

To solve this problem, we have a freely available tool known as ” Anti-Twin ” that promises us to find and remove the duplicate files from the computer easily.


Beyond just searching for the files with same names, this tool also makes comparisons based on the following criteria in particular :

  • Name.
  • Location.
  • Size.
  • Extension.
  • Bytes.
  • Pixels.

Thus, Anti-Twin can compare any parameter that we mark in the path to find the duplicate files and create patterns to show what content is duplicated.

Comparison by pixel is one of the most spectacular options as we may have two similar images with different name, size and extension but not with different pixel ratio, unless you crop them knowingly. Thus, the application will analyze the contents of the image for later comparison with other image content.
