Best way of removing duplicate files without having to manually select files

Post by ee1242 » Fri Sep 18, 2020 1:27 am

I have used the Duplicate Cleaner Pro 4.1.4 program to scan my pictures and it has found 672,982 duplicate files.

I have selected the option to move the duplicate files to a certain folder.

Now I would like Duplicate Cleaner Pro to remove all duplicate files to the folder I have selected while leaving only one of the files behind in the original location that was scanned.

I don't have the time to go through the list the Duplicate Cleaner Pro has provided and manually select the files that I want to have moved or deleted.

The problem I am facing is that I have to go through and click in the checkbox next to each duplicate file to select it and then I can choose to either move or delete these duplicate files.

I do not have the time to go through and manually click on all of these files.

So I am hoping to find a method where I can choose to leave one of the files in its original location and then either delete or move all duplicate files without having to go through and manually select all of these files.

What is the best way of doing this?

You need to use the Selection Assistant
