Windows 7: Looking for a Software Program to Scan and Remove Duplicate Files

The way it works for me is you can't delete all of them.
If you have lets say 4 of the same thing. Same date,size ect; Ccleaner will only let you remove 3 of them.
If you don't feel comfortable removing them don't do it. All they really do is take up a little space.

If you have Java installed, most duplicate finders will identify a ton of "duplicates", but they are actually all needed. Just a heads up (and another good reason to dump Java )
