Preferred Solution: Delete duplicate photos

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

when trying to select multiple photos to delete or move i get copies, how can i stop that and how can i delete all these duplicates?

A:duplicate photos

Are you are using "control" and left click to select your images/files? - if you move your mouse/touchpad (if on a laptop) while doing this it will create a copy named "copy of xxxxxxx" (where xxxxxx is the name of your file) - you just have to be more careful with how you click.
As for deleting the copies - you can try by right clicking in the folder and choose "arrange icons by - then choose modified" this may sort them into convenient groups for you to select and delete. If you know you have just made a batch of copies you can immediately right click in the folder area and choose "undo copy"
Otherwise you can use duplicate image finding software to find and delete duplicate images on your system - beware though! if you have multiple copies for a reason these types of software won't discriminate - they will just delete all duplicates.
Just google "duplicate image finder" and you will come up with a number of freeware programs.

It's annoying to discover what looks like duplicate photo side by side in Photo Gallery. My understanding is that these are just thumbnails of the actual photo file which is stored elsewhere. However, when I've tried to delete one I've deleted the file itself. Question:

Why is this happening? Is it because I've saved the photo to another folder or application and so Photo Gallery displays it twice?

How do you know which thumbnail is linked to the actual file (maybe both are)?

How to avoid or better to just not worry about it?

For some reason each time I create an album it produces a duplicate. I?m not sure why this has happened, although I was playing around with trying to move individual photos within an album ( I?m using an android device and the Google Photo app) by long pressing and trying to rearrange the photos. It didn?t work but I did notice that as I long pressed numbers showed next to the photo and I?m wondering if somehow I have inadvertently created a duplicate folder option.

I have tried deleting the album and recreating but it still creates a duplicate.

Any help appreciated.

I started out with the two previous posts about macros (post 1, post 2) that move rows into columns, but I'm having a little trouble getting it to work for what I need. First, I'm trying to do a data merge into Word, but in order to get the data merge to work/look the way I want it to, I need the XLS data to be in columns.

I'm attaching an example file that has one worksheet of the sample data (though my "real" data has about 300 rows) and the other worksheet is an example of the outcome I need.

Hi! I use the free version of CCleaner to list duplicate files, many of which are dll or java script files along with a few dic files. Almost all of them in a group have the same name, size and creation date, but have different paths. Those paths share an initial path, but then differ to one or two different sub-folders.
So my question is this: which, if any, of the dupes can be deleted? In other words, if I retain the highest level of a file and delete the dupes in its sub-folder, am I asking for trouble?

Leave them alone. DLL type files take up very little room and you run a VERY real risk of messing something up.
CCleaner is a fine program however do not use the registry cleaner part nor the part you are attempting to use.

Hi, That is one of the weak part of Windows - and other software. Each software creates its own folder and it normally uses that folder to run. Windows should be smart enough to store common files in only one spot but it can't work this out ! You can delete them BUT please note them where they are because you may have restore them back for other programs. My suggestion: keep them, few hundred megabytes now are just a piece of cake. Regards.

A:how do i delete duplicate operating systems

You should be able to delete the folder unless some of your programs are using it.

If you are using a FAT32 file system use a Dos boot disk to access the command prompt and delete the folder from there.

If you are using NTFS then use the recovery console to delete it.

Hi all, sorry if this is not in the right category (it kind of mixes email and applications).

I work IT for a local school and we're moving everyone's email from Rackspace email to Gmail. The way we have everyone copying old emails over is to have them setup both accounts in Apple's Mail 6.5 program (all the teachers have Macbooks) and drag and drop from one account to the other.

Here's my concern, we have several teachers who've wound up with duplicate emails in their new Gmail inboxes. Is there a quick way to get rid of the duplicates without manually having to go through each email. Is there some trick on Gmail or a usable script on Mail 6.5 (all laptops on Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard) that will help out? Or perhaps some third party program or service? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I want to free up space on my hard drive, so I ran a duplicate files finder.
I have several duplicate copies of (large) driver files.  I would think that I only need one.  One of the folders with drivers is c:\drivers.  I use Windows 7, so I imagine I need that folder.  I also have folders with some duplicate drivers:  \documents\double driver backup and \dell\drivers. 
Do I need those last two?

A:Duplicate drivers; which folder(s) can I delete?

You should keep the c:\drivers.  You can delete the others, but if you need to delete because you are running low on hard drive space you really need to install a larger hard drive.  Considering the price of hard drives, now, there is no reason to have to delete, etc, because of drive space.

I have rows of data with duplicate cells in each row.

I do not want to delete any rows.

I want to delete only duplicate cells in each row.

There are many ways to delete dups in columns. I do not want to delete rows. I do not want to delete rows if dups appear in the row. I want to delete the dups going across the sheet from left to right, row by row, going down the sheet from top to bottom.

For example, I five rows...

fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep
fox, sheep, goat, fox, dog bone, cat, fox, sheep

I want to delete the duplicate cells in each row. I want to end up with the following...

fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat
fox, sheep, goat, dog bone, cat

Just to clarify, if a cell is repeated in a row, one unique cell should be left in the row in which the repeated cell appears. I only want to delete repeated cells in the rows in which the repeated terms appear, leaving only one unique where the repeated cells appear. If the word "cat" appears five times in row 2 and three times in row 3, after the macro is run, the word "cat" should appear once in row 2 and once in row 3.

In some cells, spaces do appear because in some cells, the cells contain a short phrase (dog bone) rather than just... Read more

I have over 50 virtual networking adapters in device manager, I have posted this question in many forums, and still cannot get rid of these pesky unused extra adapters. I know they have been created by using Virtualbox, and by creating many virtual machines and updating virtualbox. Unfortunately, I have tried uninstalling virtualbox and the drivers all remain in devicemanager. DeviceMgmt also does not allow me to uninstall or delete the adapters, (When I do they just stay there, even after rebooting.)

I most likely have to go into the registry and delete them, but they are in so many different places there, I need to know the correct place to delete them.

I use SkyDrive as my cloud storage and have 5GB of files in it.

But I want it to be IN THE CLOUD and hidden, not accesible to everyone using my laptop and not duplicate copies of the files in my hard disk (actually triplicate copies).

For example, let's say my 3GB music collection. I keep a copy in my hard disk within "My Music", a copy in the cloud in Skydrive, but now I have a third copy in my hard disk within the Skydrive folder, which I didn't want and I wasn't asked about.

Microsoft assumed I want this third copy for some reason and downloaded everything automatically to this Skydrive folder. Great.

So, the first thing I do is uninstalling Skydrive, if I want to upload something I do it via browser, but the folder and copy of my files is still there.

My question is, can I delete those files, my music collection and so on without deleting at the same time the copy in the cloud? I mean, if I delete them here they will be deleted in the cloud too?

Thanks in advance.

A:Can I delete the SkyDrive duplicate files in my laptop?

Copied this from the skydrive FAQ.
What does the SkyDrive folder do?

When you install the SkyDrive desktop app for Windows, a copy of your SkyDrive is downloaded to your PC and put in theSkyDrive folder. This folder is kept in sync with SkyDrive. If you add, change, or delete a file or folder on SkyDrive.com, the file or folder is added, changed, or deleted in your SkyDrive folder and vice versa.
