Recovering Lost Disk Space!

My computer is overloaded with crap, and lately my main drive has been getting dangerously low on space. Mind you, I’ve got a second hard drive that’s 500MB, along with an external hard drive that’s 1.5TB. And ALL of ’em are full!

After cleaning out a ton of temporary files and stuff, I decided to see if I had any duplicate files on my computer. Back in the day, I had a program that would check for dupes, and it often came back with results that surprised me. So after scouring the web, I found a utility called “Check Identical Files” that offered a free 30-day trial. The reviews seemed good, so I decided to give it a shot.

The program found a BUNCH of duplicate files, saving me nearly 4GB of space in the process! That should hold me over until I pick up some more blank DVD-Rs.. 🙂

    It’s amazing how even a 1.5 tb hd can seem small after awhile. This software looks like a good find.
