I have used CCleaner before. Watch out before you let it go crazy with your files though, and here's why.

Let's say you have two directories that are identical content: "2012 Vacation" and "Bahamas Vacation". Each has three photos: A, B, and C. For the purposes of this example, the content is the same, but somewhere along the way you have two folders of it.

In my experience, if you run the de-duplication software without paying close attention, you can still end up with two folders, each with some of your content:

2012 Vacation
- B

Bahamas Vacation
- A
- C

Technically the de-duplicator did its job - no duplicate files anymore. But obviously this is also not the result you want. So be careful when you run it!

I've also used CCleaner, but i must warn you to be careful, especially if you planing to "fix" register files. They can make mess of your computer.

I've never tried fixing the registry with one of those tools, but it would definitely sound inadvisable without a backup first.

Launch DupeGuru and you’ll be asked to select which folders to scan. It’s worth limiting this scan so that it completes quickly while you familiarise yourself with the program, so click the + button and select your My Documents folder, then click the Scan button.
