Are there any good duplicate file finders or drive organizing tools out there that don't put trojens or spyware on my computer. I have MP3s, photos, videos, etc..

Are there any best practices so i don't remove files from software or audio courses that have a pdf workbook  or anything that might be grouped. I'm assuming I need to go through the drive and do a lot of separation myself and then let the software run on an isolated folder.

I use Easy Duplicate finder and it separates the duplicates so you can see what is what in separate panels.
It also features a lot more things

The absolute best program for weeding out duplicates photos is Dpeg from www.somewareonthe.net  Although it's designed primarily for finding duplicate images, it can be used with any type file in multiple locations.

The program was developed by just one guy and I'm as sure as anyone can be sure about anything, that it contains no spyware.

You can do all of what you need without purchasing/registering  The program will continue to work forever if you don't register it. Registering allows you save databases of pictures which is a feature that I rarely use anyway.

In it's first use I recommend using it in MD5 Hash mode (it's like CRC mode, but more precise). You can safely auto-delete in MD5 Hash mode.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
