    It would be advisable to NOT delete anything you find in there.

    Here is a free tool - <a
    href="http://www.mindgems.com/products/Fast-Duplicate-File-Finder/Fast-Duplicate-File-Finder-About.htm">find duplicate files</a>

    <a
    href="http://www.mindgems.com/products/Duplicate-MP3-Finder/Audio-Dedupe-About.htm">Audio
    Dedupe - Duplicate MP3 Finder</a> can find duplicate mp3 even without id3
    tags.

    <a
    href="http://www.mindgems.com/products/VS-Duplicate-Image-Finder/VSDIF-About.htm">Find Duplicate Photos</a> - Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder
    Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will find all similar and duplicate
    images in a folder and its sub folders.
    It uses advanced algorithms in order to find similar images in a way that a
    human does.
    Due to that fact it can find similar images even if they are in different
    image formats and sizes.

    These are all tools that I use and were featured on PCMag. Give them a try.
