Although Cloud Storage is leading the way in backing up all of our photos and such, keeping our device memory low is still important. So in addition to backing everything up to the cloud, you also want to make sure that you don’t have any unnecessary or redundant files on your device.
Today’s app hopes to help you with that predicament. Duplicate Photos Fixer is the app that aims to keep your device storage low, and your gallery cleaned up. There are really no settings to tinker with in regards to Duplicate Photos Fixer, but when you first start the app, there is a panel that pops up and asks you which storage location you would like the app to scan. You can select a specific folder, your SD card, or the entire device.
Once you’ve selected where you would like the app to scan, Duplicate Photos Fixer will scan those folders, and show you the duplicates that were found. At the bottom of the Duplicates page, you will see how many duplicates were found, how many photos have been marked, the size of the marked photos, and a trash can button. Being able to see how much storage is being taken up by these duplicates, is a great asset to have to help control the storage.
Once you’ve had your folders scanned, and you have selected which photos you no longer want on your device, hit the trash can button. Hitting this will bring up a Confirm Delete dialogue box, that ensures that you don’t delete anything by accident. If you’re 100% sure you want to delete the duplicates, hit “OK” and your available storage increases bit by bit.
Earlier, it was mentioned that there weren’t many settings to tinker with. However, the main setting to change around is the severity of how hard Duplicate Photos Fixer looks for similar images. This is helpful if you have a lot of images that are similar, but different at the same time, and you don’t want the app to recognize the wrong images as being duplicates.
Is it for me?
All in all, Duplicate Photos Fixer is a free and easy way to keep those extra images out of your gallery. In addition to that, you will also be able to free up some space just to make sure that you never get close to filling your device up with useless files.
