After using a computer for 6months or more, you will start noticing some drives space being occupied even without storing so much on them, at times you may even back up an sdcard twice or even more, thereby creating duplicate music tracks, pictures, videos and etc. Most programs will extract .netframework and similar add-on more than thrice during installation leading to many bloated files in your temp directory.

It is a very normal occurrence, a lot of unnecessary clone files accumulate on your hard disk. These could be backup copies of files you forgot, photos you accidentally saved twice, or personal videos you cloned for editing – but also many programs regularly clone files that you don’t need. Such duplicated contents can be spotted on the go with the award-winning TuneUp duplicate finder. The tool is found under “clean up” tab from the program interface that houses;

  • Remove broken shortcut
  • Clean up Windows and programs
  • Clean up browser
  • Disable windows functions

  • Securely delete data and many more

  3. Hey Obasi,

    I don’t have a lot of issues with my computer to be honest with you. I mean I do scan and clean it often and it runs great still. Like Babanature, I also have the CCleaner program so maybe if I run into other issues down the road I’ll keep this one in mind.

    Thank you for sharing and I can’t believe 2014 will be here before we know it. Oh wow…


  4. Hello Obasi,
    This is indeed a nice review on the tuneup utility. Some months back, i used it and i seriously did loved it till i downloaded the CCleaner. So i removed the tuneup because it was carrying the same function as CCleaner… But now that they have added some new cool features, i might just download it and see how it goes.
    Nice review by the way. Do have a wonderful week ahead….
