A Sansa Clip is an MP3 player developed by SanDisk. While it allows you to enjoy your favourite songs while on the go, you may have accidentally synced several duplicate files. Duplicate files are exact copies of the originals. They consume your media player's hard disk space, and can make it difficult to upload other songs. If you are running out of hard disk space due to duplicates, remove unnecessary files using one of two simple methods.

Skill level:


    Directly from your Sansa Clip

  1. 1

    Turn on your Sansa Clip MP3 player and set your player in the playback mode. You should see a list of the songs on your player. Duplicate files should be next to each other.

  2. 2

    Select the duplicate file you want to delete and press the "Submenu" button.

  3. 3

    Scroll down the submenu and select "Delete" Songs" to remove the duplicate song. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to delete additional duplicates.

    Using your Computer

  1. 1

    Connect your Sansa Clip to your computer using your USB cable.

  2. 2

    Select "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer." Windows Explorer launches and displays your player's hard drive.

  3. 3

    Double-click the folder containing your music files. Select the duplicate music files you want to remove and press "Delete." Confirm your selection.

  4. 4

    Disconnect your MP3 player from your computer.
