It really is slow. But I think it's because of HDD speed and the number of files we have.

Hello Bruce and welcome to the community.

Thank you Schiwata for that insight also.

As to what Schiwata said, the speed of the feature of the Trend Micro program which is the "Remove Duplicate Files" depends on the number of files and the file size. If there are many duplicate files it may take some time, but if there are only a few items it should finish quick. May I know how many duplicate files are you removing and the file size? You can post the screenshot on this community for us to see.

Hope this clarifies your concern.

Thank you and have a great week!
