What are the best programs that will detect and clear duplicate files?

Several clients of mine have a lot of pictures on their computers.

Some of these pictures are the exact same picture even though all of these pictures have different file names.

What are the best software programs for detecting and clearing these duplicate files?

Hello Experts, I've used CCleaner for years both personally & professionally.  Since their recent incident,  being hacked, I've lost confidence is the application, not only this my work has now banned the use of it.  So with that being said I'm looking for something similar to use.

Hi Experts,

I realized that lately my pc is reacting very slow to my keystrokes, especially when using the mouse to move objects in Access forms, any idea what can be the reason?

I checked task manager and CPU usage is low, and RAM is not to high either..

PS. Windows 7 Pro, NO VIRUS as per AVG..

Thanks in advance.

Is there a way to convert a permon .blg file into a report that I can email to management? I have used the PAL utility to generate the .html file but, the .blg file it is reading is 125MB. I need a way to take the PAL report and make it into a document that I can provide to management.

Thanks

Can someone recommend a good free disk partition software to increase the volume size on my C Partition in server 2012
I cannot use diskpart / disk management as the free space created by shrinking an existing volume would not produce a contiguous sector for the C partition to expand into

I know this is a security risk, but I am wondering if there is any free web page system that I can install that automatically lists all services and applications installed on the system that it runs on? This is for my private network, because I often forget what I install on my servers and I don't want to spend time keeping track of everything in a database or excel file. Would be nice to just open a web page hosted on the server and see a auto generated list. I use mostly Debian.

Hi Team

Have to migrate the TFS 2013 work items to VSTS 2015 online - Web version.

Not sure whether any automation is available or do we have some sequence of steps to migrate the Codes, Change-set, History, test cases etc

Need some pointers to make this migration.

Thanks

I originally wrote this article to compare SARDU and YUMI, but have now added Easy2Boot, since that is the one I currently use and find the easiest to create and alter.

On my primary Windows 10 system I'm running a two screen system.

I'd like a util that restricts my mouse cursor to my main screen.  Preferably free.  And if possible unloadable from the screen if I decide that I 'd like to the mouse to venture across to the second screen.

Any recommendations for such a util?  Preferably one that has been used by you.

When I try running windows update I get an error Windows update cannot ... because the service is not running.
I check the service is running.
I followed this article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/971058/how-do-i-reset-windows-update-components got errors on lot of dll
(If this is a big job maybe should I give the owner a choice to do a fresh install,  a fresh install with applications should not be more than 4 hours)

I used PrintKey Pro for several years, but the version I have does not seem to be compatible with a three monitor Windows 7 system.

I am mostly interested in selecting areas of the screen to copy and paste into instruction sheets.


Thanks.

Not sure if this really counts, because I wasn't the SysAdmin in this scenario; instead, I was the problematic user! But here goes: back when I was a student at CalPoly, we had access to the school's UNIX system for things like our email. I had taken the C and UNIX class, so I knew my way around the command line enough to do more than just use PINE to check my email. I also really liked the SETI @ Home project, so I got the UNIX version of the client and installed it on my account on the school's system and would just let it run.

I think maybe I had it going for a month and I have no idea what sort of resources it was taking up. I imagine it wasn't really all that bad, but eventually, a SysAdmin did shut it down and told me not to do that again...

I imagine college SysAdmins have to deal with a lot of shenanigans like that! :-D
