Duplicate Files

System Mechanic has found over 5000 duplicate files on my machine
Are most of these really not needed files that I can dump?

The vast majority are probably in temp directories and not needed.

If you're worried that you may need some of them, you could always just delete the files that haven't been accessed in a while.

Did you only select your hard drive (drive C) when running this software. If not, it may be reading duplicate files stored on an external drive.

Sorry guys . . . I'll claim mental fatigue or nervous breakdown as reason for not looking at dates.
