Removing all the trash
You may be surprised at the amount of digital clutter that you have on your hard drive. The first step in terms of removing the trash is to start with the Recycle Bin, on Windows or the Trash, on Mac Operating System. On Windows, you can right click on the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop screen, then opt for Empty Recycle Bin. If you are using a Mac, you can click and hold the Trash icon on the dock and go with Empty Trash.
When it comes to deleted files, you can keep on to the copies of your files that you may not even realize that you have already accumulated. The most effective way of doing this is to ask for the support from a third party tool, which is ideal enough to identify files that are same even when the locations and file names are different.
Dupe Guru is not the most improved file finder, yet it can help you without requiring you to pay and you can adopt this solution from both Windows and macOS. Another free tool for Windows is AllDup, which can get you through finding, listing and taking out all duplicate files from your hard drive.
On macOS, it is highly recommended for you to go with Duplicate File Finder. This is a free option but it would cost you 10 dollars for extra offerings such as duplicate folder removal and premium support. Gemini is another free choice but it will cost 20 dollars if you want to remove more than 500 megabytes of data. Both of options are simple to use and you will be guided and shown how many copies you have got before you have to decide to pay.
Uninstalling programs you have no longer use can free up your hard disk space. You can open up the Apps screen from Settings in Windows, or the Applications folder in Finder on mac OS in order to view everything that has been installed on your device. If you have not used something for a long time, you may know to remove it from your computer.
