Space wasters are the unnecessary duplicate files available on your Mac. It has been noticed that people owning a MacBook Air with 128GB of internal memory, faces the problem of less space. Shocked! 

We click so many pictures and save them that even so much of internal memory fails to store our pictures. Now buying extra space is not a solution because first of all it will cost you more and second of all the added memory will also get filled with unnecessary photos. 

There are possibilities that you have duplicate photos or files and because of which the space of your Mac is running out. One of the best solutions is to find out the duplicates and delete them. Now arises the pain of manually doing it but wait! Why do it manually when you have a tool that can help you out with it. Gemini 2 from MacPaw.
