Duplicate files are just the part and parcel of our lives. At multiple instances, you create various copies of the file required and end up having duplicate files in your system. One rarely notices duplicate files in his system.
There is no easy way to remove duplicate files as they are spread across the storage of your system. Unless you want to spend a significant number of hours doing this, you have to look out for an application that does the work for you.
Through this we post, we introduce Gemini 2, an application that does the work for you. It is a smart app from MacPaw that scans all files on your Mac and identifies the duplicate files using MacPaw’s algorithm. This algorithm is so intelligent that it can identify duplicate files even if they are different folders with different names.
How can you get Gemini?
Gemini is a paid app and costs $19.99. You can download it from here. Considering the fact that the duplicate files will be popping up on your screen time and again, this app is totally worth the price. Free trial for Gemini is also available but it will only help you in getting a list of duplicate files on your Mac. You would have to delete each file manually.
How to use Gemini?
- Before we start with, I would advise you to have a data backup just in case to have a safer side.
- Launch Gemini 2 and let it scan your entire Mac. It will take around 2-3 minutes. It will show you the amount of storage occupied by duplicate files on your system. You will have two options: Review Results & Smart Cleanup. I would recommend you to click on Review Results.
- Now, you will see a 3-paned window. In the left-most pane, you will the types of file. The center pane displays the list of duplicate files found by the app and the right-most pane displays the thumbnail.
- To start clearing space on your files, start reviewing each file and let the app do the rest of the work.
