    Duplication of one drive files onto my PC


    I have two drives on my PC, the D: drive where I keep all photos and documents and is 2TB and a much smaller SSD drive for applications. Unfortunately the files that are synced to One Drive from the D drive are then being duplicated onto the C: drive and have used up all the space on the C: drive. Can I just delete this one drive folder on the C drive? How do I stop it doing this???

    :)

  2. Duplicate drive listed in explorer.


    I had read some good tutorials on how to remove unwanted items from the side explorer navigation pane and was interested if someone knows how to remove a duplicate of a drive showing up?

    Here is what I am dealing with:


    Duplication of one drive files onto my PC [​IMG]


    The duplicate listing of Drive F: which is a USB Flash drive is not necessary and I would like to remove one of them.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT:

    I think I found it here: Add or Remove Duplicate Drives in Navigation Pane in Windows 10

    I'll give it a go and find out.

    It appears that the drives listed under "This PC" are not considered duplicate listings and the reg file does not have any effect on those listings.

    So imperially or practically, I guess I don't really have a duplicate listing of the drive unless the branch of "This PC" is expanded.

    Finding duplicate files

    Hey hey,

    During the years the backups have just accumulated in random places, essentially, and I would like to clean up. Is there a program that can search for duplicate files? And by that I mean identical files. I tried dupeGuru, but that somehow found ... all files to be identical I guess? Like how a bunch of jpg's with different names, sizes and locations being marked 100% identical, or how a bunch of xls-files with completely different everything also were 100% matches with each other. I don't need any fancy functions, just a list of the files that share the name and filesize and created/last write dates.
