Tag - Duplicate
There is a saying that nothing digital really exists unless it exists twice: if there isn't a copy of it somewhere, then the one original is in such danger of being lost that it might as well be gone already. However, this is a reason to make backups: it's not a reason to duplicate our files all over the place yet that is somehow what we do. You included. Very much you included: stop trying to look innocent. You have multiple copies of the same Word document and you've definitely got duplicated photos, admit it. Stage 1 of reclaiming space on your hard drive is admitting that you've got a problem. Stage 2 could be buying Gemini 2.0 for OS X.
Don't follow this Pointers tutorial until you've read it all first: you could end up deleting tracks from your iTunes library that you don't intend to. Apple has provided tools that make up for how preposterously easy it is to end up with five copies of the same song, but while they are good and you can make them more exact, they are not perfect. Then there are ways to undo mistakes, but since deleted songs go to the trash, you could well empty that before finding out that you wish you hadn't.
