With easy-to-get photos, songs, videos, and apps, storage quickly becomes a valuable commodity these days. MacPaw’s Gemini software, which sells for $9.99, aids in freeing up space on your Mac’s hard drive through flagging and removal of duplicate files.
Whether redundancies are creating a disturbance in your iPhoto, iTunes, Documents, or Downloads folders, Gemini takes care of it fast.
Gemini is very intuitive and easy-to-use
Using Gemini is as easy as reading your horoscope. After you open the app, you can drag-and-drop a specific file/folder into the window, or you can use the plus button to identify the folder or library. We started with asking Gemini to scan our whole Home folder, which it did very rapidly. In our case, it took under a minute, and in that time, Gemini identified about half a gigabyte of duplicate files.
Gemini uses a color-coded pie chart to visualize what it finds, sorting by size. To preview any of the culprits, just click on them, and tick the box of the duplicates you want to remove. You can also take advantage of the Gemini’s auto select and let it do its own thing.
Gemini safeguards you from mistakes
When deleting files, Gemini provides a number of safeguards. First, when you tick a box, it does not delete a file, it just flags it. Once you have made your choice, you can press Remove Selected. This will open another panel that will prompt you to review your choices before you proceed.
Exclude lists are a bonus for those using cloud-based repositories like Google Drive and DropBox. If you don’t want to tamper with a folder, extension, or networked file, you can just exclude it using Exclude List panel.
If you want your Mac clean and fast, Gemini is for you
If you have a huge drive and you would like to have more control over the process of identifying duplicates, you may find Gemini a very helpful utility. It is a real bargain, and if you are a casual user, it makes it quick to search across libraries. It is not only easy, it is visually appealing. You can try a 30-day demo to see if it’s right for you.
And if you’re still unsure about buying after that, you can take advantage of a special deal that MacPaw is running right now. The developer offers Gemini in a bundle with another cleaning utility, CleanMyMac, both at discounted prices.
The offer is limited though, so make sure not to miss it! Check out CleanMyMac + Gemini bundle!Check out CleanMyMac + Gemini bundle!
