    It’s really stressful to delete duplicate files. This happens to me most of the time because I unconsciously backup my backup files. I really get confused about which one to delete. A friend of mine told me to try Duplicate Files Deleter. It worked like a charm and very user-friendly. I have been using this for almost 2 years now.
