Mulltiple copies of files RRS feed

  • Question

  • It was suggested that I re-post this question in this forum.

    I'm using a program called "Dupliacate Cleaner Free". It checks for files with the same content even if they have different names.

    Looking at the results on my C drive I have 28,700 duplicate files on my main drive and I want to get rid of as many as I can.

    My first issue is with msvcr80.dll

    Seems I have 10 copies of this file and 6 of them have a different name.

    The names and locations of the files with duplicate content are as follows:

    MSvcr80.dll        C:BcmSqlSetup\pcsource

    MSvcr80.dll        C:BcmSqlSetup\x86\

    MSvcr80.dll        C:BcmSqlSetup\pcsource\x86\

    MSvcr80.dll        C:BcmSqlSetup\

    37hpravq.Im8     C:BcmSqlSetup\x86\setup\windows\system32\

    h2rg91xw.1p4     C:BcmSqlSetup\x86\setup\windows\winsxs\92rg91xw.1p4

    k2rg91xw.1p4      C:BcmSqlSetup\x86\setup\windows\winsxs\b2rg91xw.1p4

    37hpravq.Im8      C:BcmSqlSetup\pcsource\x86\setup\1033\windows\system32\

    h2rg91xw.1p4      C:BcmSqlSetup\pcsource\x86\setup\1033\winsxs\92rg91xw.1p4

    k2rg91xw.1p4       C:BcmSqlSetup\pcsource\x86\setup\1033\winsxs\b2rg91xw.1p4

    Do I really need all these copies and if so, why the different names for the same file content.

    Thanks

  • Looks like the setup files for business contact manager so you can probably delete if no longer needed.

    I'd ask for more help over here.
