“Searching Your Computer Part 3: Finding Duplicate Non-Image Files – Family History Update Webinar”

Donald R. Snow
2/23/21

Categories: RT, S

Talk Abstract:
This is Part 3 of a series about searching for files on your computer and will discuss finding duplicate non-image files. Another class will deal with finding duplicate image files. After you find them, you can eliminate them since they clog up your hard drive(s) or you may want to save more than one for a backup; but then you can decide. Methods and free programs will be discussed to help with these tasks. File maintenance takes time and effort, but needs to be done. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active internet links, are on Don’s webpage https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
