Folks - I have been using my computer for almost 18 years with addition of multiple hard-disks over the period of time. I am having over 3TB of data which is spread across different hard-disks (Internal/ External) and obviously giving room for duplicate files.

I am looking for a best freeware tool to clean up this mess. I am totally fine with paid version, if it does the job accurately.

Just a rough analysis of contents

Photos and Videos 70%
MS-Office 20%
Other files 10%


Help me

If you are planning to consolidate to one hard disc then try freefilesync

Set up your folders, copy from different hard discs to the consolidated one and delete/format the sources

Ashampoo Winoptimizer and Glary Utilities. Been using both since a long time. Works brilliantly. Also has options to permanently delete files and wipe the free space amongst many more.

I see Ashampoo is giving away the full version for free. Hope no hiccups later.

Hi,

I don't know whether these tools can catch files with different names. I often rename files if I find that the names are unnecessarily long. In this situation, I usually write simple Python scripts for the job, which internally use md5sum command to identify files with same content but having different names.
