    Hi James. Be careful when removing duplicate files. especially if they
    `belong` to windows.
    It`s OK to delete your own dups. But Windows maintains duplicates
    in folders for repair and maintenance purposes.
    There are several dup file finders out there, it`s probably best if you
    Google for them, then use one that suits your needs.
    best wishes..OJ

    Be careful - you are sure that thse are genuinely duplicate *redundant*
    files - not intentionally duplicated files that are part of different
    operational programmes?

    You can use NoClone to uncover duplicate files. Use Smart marker to
    mark files for removal, e.g. mark older files to remove.

    What if some program needs an older version of a .dll in it's own folder
    to work?

    Another good one is:



    Their ethics are a short summary of police ordinances: for them the
    most important thing is to be a useful member of the state, and to air
    their opinions in the club of an evening; they have never felt the
    homesickness for something unknown and far away, nor the depths which
    consists in being nothing at all. ___________Soren Kierkegaard
