Playing with duplicate files is a dangerous game.
All Windows version will have multiple copies of system files. You remove something important and you're in trouble.
Why do you need to find duplicate files?

I am trying to locate what appear to be copies of images / photographs that have accumulated over a few years and are now on different drives , may be my term 'Files' was the wrong wording to use - not looking to look for or delete any type of system or operating files - thanks for your help,
Chris

Unfortunately, I don't use any program of that kind, so I can't vouch for anything :)

I do not use them either but a google search should give you something.

Also keep in mind that the program will also find .bmp and .jpg, etc pictures that are associated with programs. Removing them will render the program useless.
