How to free up space so that In can update software on MacBook Air


Start with photos and music files: if there are duplicates - make SURE they are exact duplicates (name/file size/R click-quicklook). You can get an external hard drive cheaply (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_19?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=external+hard+drive&sprefix=external+hard+drive%2Caps%2C166) and move important info. If you are unsure of your knowledge - ask friends!

duplicate file searcher


The software that I have used and recommend compares every important factor that you will need to make the right decision when dealing with duplicates. It finds duplicate songs, emails, files, and more easily on your computer by using a 'Wizard' function for the most common duplicate files and folder finding tasks. It has great customer support, and is the most thorough out of all of the programs that I have tested.

need to remove duplicate files


Hello rvpooley

My name is Billy.

PC Junktion is dedicated to finding solutions to those pesky computer problems.
Since you know what kind of files your are searching for, In XP, Windows Search Companion makes it easy to find duplicate files with the file search utility.

There are also many fine and free programs for accomplishing this mechanical feat. Let's first look at the Window's utility.

Create a Folder on My Desktop by right clicking and select new folder. Name this folder "Mixed up files" or something you can remember. It will be on your desktop.

GOTO->START->(menu pops up)->Click Search(magnigfying glass icon)->All Files and Folders->
Stop and take this in.
Text files will end in .txt, word docs end in .doc or (2007) .docx
picture files will most likely be .jpg, .bmp, .gif, or .png.

NOW:
We are going to use a wildcard search. An asterisk(*) represents the filename ina wildcard search.

For example in the [All or part of the filename] Box, we can search for ALL files of that flavor.
Type these wildcards in the first box exactly or copy and paste.
*.txt; *.jpg; *.gif; *.bmp; *.png;

LOOK IN: Drop Down Box-> CLICK->My Computer

Click Search. Be patient, there may be more than you know of...

Wait for the utility to finish.

GOTO Edit in the Toolbar and choose Select All. Move to the folder you created in My documents.

You know have them in one folder (on your Desktop) and now I will find a utility to handle the job.
You may want to back up to a DVD or CD in case of a crash.

I will be back tomorrow.

Hope this helps for now.
