Delete Files With Similar Names
Consider a scenario, “I have a pen drive which has some problem and do not show any files when transferred to it. If I copy files in a folder and move it to the flash drive then I could see the folder. Hence, I can access files in that folder. I used this procedure to copy and view my files in the USB drive whenever I had to. Sometimes, I used to delete the folders and the other times I deleted the files from the location where I used to copy them to a folder to be moved to pen drive. Now, the data on my computer has become very messy. Free memory space on my computer has also decreased drastically. I need to remove the repeated files on my computer. But I could not make out how many duplicate files are there manually, from the massive data stored on the computer. Is there a way to detect and delete all duplicate files at once? Please let me know if you know any way by which I can do it automatically as I do not have much of time to do it myself.”
