    It is potentially dangerous to try to use an app to automatically delete duplicate or "junk" files, as it may delete something you didn't want deleted. Where do you see duplicate files and what do you consider duplicates? You could, for example, have two files with the same name that are not true duplicates. You could also have two files with different names that are true duplicates. As for "junk" files, you need to be more specific as to what you consider junk.
