Are these pretty fool proof. I've used this type of software twice and it messed up my system by deleting not only duplicates but original system files.

I use a Virtual Machine to try out programs like this, just to make sure i dont mess anything up, worth the try?
Or you could make a backup or snapshot, that works too.
Respect!

Alldup is a good one I've used in the past, another more recent addition to my repertoire is one developed by the guy who makes my go to file manager - Xplorer². It's called I-DeClone. It's not free, but there is a 30-day free trial.

Announcement of the software at the main dev's page: xplorer² blog: i-DeClone remove duplicate and similar files

Software home page: i-DeClone clean-up duplicate and similar files

I'm not affiliated with the company in any way, just love the software that he has written and bought them all because they're that good for my uses.

Awesome thanks. Yeah I used to use that file explorer also best one until I found OneCommander. Nothing like it out there in style looks and function in one. But ty for the software recommendation.

Oh, wow, thanks for that - it looks modern as heck, and though I've really, really gotten used to X² over the last ...argh well over 15 years (!), I've got to give this one a try. And I'm also giving Yair's Files app a try too, though it is extremely basic for a dual pane, multi-tabbed FM.....
