    Is there a way to delete duplicate files from my hard drive? I've noticed I have a few of my things in different spots and would really like to clean it up.

    Also, I've noticed files from software I have deleted still on the drive. That is one thing I've never liked, I never feel I've removed everything by just putting something in the recycle bin. Today I found a file for something I deleted a couple weeks ago. Any tips on this?

    Thanks!

    There's no safe and effective app for deleting duplicates. Unfortunately, the manual method is most effective.
    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    Bah, so I guess there is no software to go through and look for rembrandts of already removed apps.

    No, none that look for remnants, either. :D
