      CCleaner vs FSlint opinions
      This alternative is disputed. CCleaner is still a legitimate alternative to FSlint, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      thomaszahreddin fslint checks the filesystem (fs - lint) and also detects duplicate files and repaces them with e.g. hardlinks - that is not a function fo ccleaner (from the description), i use fslint on linux and search for an alternative for windows boxes.

      CCleaner is a) spyware at best, crapware at worst and b) has nothing to do with removing duplicate files.
