Hi Elyssa,

Different programs best handle different types of duplicate files on the
Mac. A "one-and-done" approach can lead to undesired consequences, so I
would proceed carefully and make sure everything is backed up, even if the
intention is to keep one copy of everything.

   - Documents are handled well with Decloner and/or ChronoSync
   - Photos Library: use PowerPhotos
   - iTunes: use Dupin

There are other file types and data sets that have different best
practices, or are best handled on a case by case basis. If you need
additional help, we can book a time.

Best of luck!
