Clean Your Mac Hard Drive of Duplicate Files with Gemini 2
When your Mac houses all the important files and documents you need at work and for home, you want to make sure it is always in top condition. But throughout the years, your online activity combined with time spent on the Mac has caused wear and tear similar to other equipment.
You can perform all the standard cleaning and maintenance procedures to keep your Mac fine tuned and running smoothly but the truth is it will never be enough.
Many users of Mac and the PC believe that cleaning out the cache, deleting files and emptying the Trash bin are enough to free up storage space. But often times, they forget they may have created duplicate files which are no longer needed. Most of these have been stored away for ages in who- knows- where inside the Mac.
These duplicate files are taking up valuable storage space. Combined with leftover residue from deleting files, broken links, unwanted apps and widgets, you may find your Mac failing you at a time you need it the most.
Gemini 2 is an app that helps create more storage space in your Mac by finding duplicate files and eliminating them. For sure, most of you do your share in deleting duplicate files. It’s just that it takes too much time. Gemini 2 can get it done fast, clean and efficiently.
Here are the key features of the Gemini 2:
