Question about Computers & Internet
I suggest you try Duplicate Filter from http://www.duplicatefilter.com, which is a powerful tool to assist anyone in cleaning up the contents of their personal hard drive or corporate network. You'd be surprised just how many unwanted or duplicate files you could find forgotten in an obscure documents folder.
Here are the ways to find and delete duplicate files:
1. Click "Add Folder" button in "Find Duplicate" section to select the folders you wish.
2. Select Compare Mode: Check by Name+Size, by CRC+Name, by CRC only, by Name only, by Size only.
3. Click "Scan" button and start to find duplicate files.
4. After searching the duplicates, you can choose to delete them, move or copy them to a different folder, or rename them in their current location. Duplicate Filter Free Software to Find and Remove Duplicate Files

If you want to delete specific files or folders one by one all you have to do is put your mouse pointer on the file, RIGHT CLICK, a menu will pop up that gives you options, put your mouse on the "delete" option and LEFT CLICK, you might see a box asking if you are sure you want to delete this file or folder, just click the OK or YES option.
You can also use the "disc clean up" utility. Click on the START button, put your mouse on the PROGRAMS or ALL PROGRAMS (depending on what operating system you are running the menu may or may not pop up automatically, so if it does not LEFT CLICK on it), another menu will open showing your programs, go to the ACCESSORIES, put your mouse on it (again, it may open automatically if not, LEFT CLICK), go to SYSTEM TOOLS, then you should see the DISC CLEAN UP utility, LEFT CLICK on it. It may take a few seconds to initialize and then you can select the things you want to clean up by LEFT CLICKING on the little check boxes (if there is no check already in the box, this should place one inside of it. You can also deselect an option by left clicking on it if it already has a check in the box). Once you have made your selections, click the OK button (another box may pop up asking if you are sure you want to perform these options, just click YES or OK) and the computer will do the rest (it may take a bit of time depending on how much stuff you have that you want to clean up, so just let the computer do its work).
The following are some things you want to check:
Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, Temporary Files, Downloads or Download Program Files, Compress Old Files, Recycle Bin, there may be more options so you can decide what you want to delete. Different operating systems have different options, but some of these are common to all systems.
After you have done a disc clean up, you will also want to use the DISC DEFRAGMENT utility. This will also be in your system tools menu like the disc clean up utility was. LEFT CLICK on it, choose the DEFRAGMENT option and then the computer will do all the work (again, it may take a bit of time to perform the defragment).
To keep your system clean and have more space on your hard drive, I would suggest you do this once a week. I hope this information helps answer your question. If you need further assistance, please feel free to ask. I wish you all the best.
If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You
