We all are fond of storing images, videos, etc in our system, but at certain times the files are stored repeatedly or say the images or other files have several copies stored on the system that eat up much space on the system hard disk unnecessarily. The increasing scarcity of space on the hard disk can contribute in reducing the system performance and cause the system to slow down.

You can delete all duplicate files in one go that too in a single click.
