Yes you can delete the music video and doc files but do not delete the duplicate operating system files

Different programs can put a file of the same name into a iffent windows folder if you delete any of these files you may find one or more of our programs stop working

ballyboy, try this: http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/duplicate-file-finder/ I have used it on occasions. As long as you are absolutely sure what you are doing there should be no problems.
