After adding the folder to scan for duplicate files click the blue "Scan Now" button and wait for the scanning process to finish. Depending upon the size of the disk and the number of files to be scanned the scanning process might take a little while.
When the scanning is done, review the list of duplicated categorized into All files, Images, Documents, Music, Videos, Archives, and Other files identified as duplicates. Double click the detected file to preview its contents and select the ones you’d like to remove. You can do this manually or can use the “Auto-Mark” option to automatically select duplicates leaving one copy in each group unmarked.

Confirm the action by clicking the Trash button in the confirmation box and wait for the process to finish. To re-confirm you can click the Review button. Once the files are deleted, you will get a summary of Files & Folders moved to trash and space recovered.
