Hi we currently have a local NAS device with over 600 GB stored on it. I'm sure we have a lot of duplicate files on it. We currently back it up with a Online company. I have 2 questions.

 

First what are some recommendations for a file duplicate finder program? My thought is to have one of our users with knowledge of their folders run a duplicate file finder, then manually delete the duplicate files as they see fit.

 

Second I'd like to know what some other businesses have used as a cloud storage option. I'd like to hear your thoughts of the pluses and minuses of the companies that have been used.

 

Thanks for any input on both questions.

Well...I would leave "duplicate files" alone.

 

600GB isn't a lot of storage, IMO.  I'm just a casual user but I have well over 5TB of data files stored on this system...and I know those files are nothing but data files.

 

Installing various programs may result in the appearance of duplicate system/program files...but if those files are removed from the location where the programs expects to find them...the program may hiccup.
