Although Apple releases a new MacBook Pro with a larger storage SSD which can be configurable to 1TB/2TB, 128GB, and 256GB SSD are still the most popular. No matter whether you are a Windows computer user or a Mac user, there will be more and more duplicate files left on the computer when you use it.

First, download Gemini 2 and install it. You’ll see its main interface below after launching it.

You can also drag and drop the folder into the application to add the folder for scanning. As Gemini 2 can find duplicate files including documents, iTunes songs, and photos, there are three folder types you can choose – “Home Folder“, “Music Folder” and “Pictures Folder“.

When scanning, Gemini 2 will first start estimating and building the folder map. It takes seconds to finish the estimating. Then the scan process will start, and the progress bar started to move slowly, with more duplicate files being scanned and found. The scanning may take several minutes. The processing time depends on the folder structure, files size, and files amount.

Note: While scanning, MacPaw Gemini 2 will slow the Mac down. Because it needs to take up a lot of CPU and memory resources. It will influence your Mac performance. Don’t launch too many applications or do important processes when using Gemini 2 to scan. If you can close the applications you don’t use, that would be better for the scan process.

If you want Gemini 2 to do the deletion itself, “Smart Delete” lets you delete all duplicates easily just with one click. If you are a new Gemini 2 user, I strongly recommend you take time to review the duplicate files, even if it will cost you too much time. Because MacPaw Gemini 2 will optimize its algorithm by your deletion habits, and make the “Smart Deletion” better and better for you.
