Cleaning is required everywhere whether we are at home or office. While cleaning is important at these places, we should not forget to clean our phones also. It is better to clean our phones after every few months rather than once in a year!
Cleaning of phones includes removing unnecessary applications, files, documents, audios, videos, and photos as well. However, if you have ever cleaned your phone earlier, you must have found multiple copies of same files, documents, and photos piled up in your phone. It would have been so annoying for sure!
Think of it when you are trying to download your favorite song and a low memory warning appears! At that point of time, we curse our phones and think why didn’t we clean phone on time?
We are devoting our valuable phone space for keeping same files and folders when we could have used it for keeping something useful!
Duplicate files consume a lot of space and hog the resources on our phones. They not only take space but also slower down the performance of our devices. Duplicate files accumulate in our phones when we download files from the internet twice or thrice mistakenly or share file through Bluetooth. The error in transferring of files results in the creation of duplicate files.
Deleting duplicate stuff from phones will reduce the time of searching files. It will help us as a file finder to look for the version of those files which we want. The benefits of deleting duplicates are listed below:
- Identify and recover wasted memory space
- Reduce the time and media used for creating backups
- Reduced file searching time
- No repetitive stuff
