Duplicate or identical files are the exact copies of each other. Image files that are not same when they are compared in binary mode, but they are resized or rotated versions of the same image are also said to be duplicate files. Similarly, audio or video files compressed using different codecs and saved in different formats but having the same content can also be considered to be identical.
Duplicate files or identical files are a problem on all sorts of devices whether Windows PC, Mac, iPhone or Android smartphones. This is specially true with devices that are always connected to the internet like iPhones or Android devices. In the case of Android, you can use a free app called Duplicate File Remover to quickly find and remove all types of duplicate files from your devices.
