Freeware Fun: Duplicate Finder, Disk Defragmenter, Slideshow Maker

There is no other platform that offers the range of robust tools and utilities that Windows offers. Mobile platforms can’t compared, even Mac and Linux struggle to catch their breath when it comes to desktop software. Need to defragment your hard disk? Find duplicate files? Windows has got you covered.

A look at the finest freeware software for the week that is about to end:

LookDisk

The name of this free software is only the fancy thing here, as the program gets straight to the point of locating duplicate photos, music, video clips, and documents that waste space on your hard drive. You can locate and delete clones by searching by name or content.

Smart Defrag 3

Smart Defrag is a sleek program with intelligent features that helps with its enhanced engine that runs up to 50 percent faster.

LibreCAD

One thing you can be sure of Computer Aided Design (CAD) software is that they are difficult to master. Many are even hard to begin. LibreCAD is no exception, but you can come to grips with it somewhat quickly. It offers a wealth of drawing to tools, allowing you to create complex 2D designs.
