No matter how carefully you use your Mac, you are always going to have duplicate files and folders. While it may not seem to be much of a problem in the beginning, over time, your Mac can start to suffer from having a lot of duplicate files and folders. This is because the performance of your Mac is dependent on the amount of free space found in your hard drive.
Moreover, having a lot of duplicate files on your hard disk leads to a disorganized computer with you not knowing which file or folder to edit, update or delete.
Manually deleting these duplicate folders and files can take an eternity as you will first have to find the duplicates, check if they are indeed duplicates and then delete them one by one, carefully, so as to not delete both versions of a file that you might have.
Fighting the duplicate program with automation
However, with a program called Gemini, a best selling program released by MacPaw, you can now delete duplicates with just a couple of clicks, in seconds, without having to manually review anything.
