    System Ninja


    Win 10 20H2

    I have recently been using System Ninja as per Ten Forums recommendation and find it very useful especial for deleting junk files.

    I was exploring other things it could do and came across " duplicate finder " under the the system tools tab.

    As I write it is scanning through thousands and thousands of files, after it is done what am I supposed to do next?

    It appears there are 2 columns of scanned files, left column under which it says, "delete file " & " open containing folder " right column " open containing folder & "delete file", it has another option at top of window to export files.

    How will I know what are duplicate files and safe to delete?

    Unless they are files that you personally created or downloaded and saved somewhere leave the duplicates alone. Especially system files.

    Note: I don't currently use System Ninja as adding files to the ignore list takes forever.

    Hello @Jaylob4,

    If you go down this route, I STRONGLY suggest that you create a System Image FIRST, and then thoroughly CHECK your files once you have Removed / Deleted them. Piece of mind is a wonderful thing.

    I hope this helps.

    There are two columns. One is the original, the other is a duplicate. You chose what to do with it, Delete it or leave it there. Unless you know what your doing, we suggest leaving the files there

    It will find hundreds or thousands of duplicates. The only duplicates that you should be interested in are personally created files like documents, images, videos and so on. For everything else - leave it alone.
