Question: How do i remove these duplicates?

User uploaded fileUser uploaded file

I have a 2011 MacBook pro with 512gb SSD and 16gb RAM running Sierra.

Looking through finder it looks like a lot of files have been duplicated ( not by me!) but this one is bugging me as its quite large and as can be seen from last screen shot "deleting" isn't an option, and when I try to drag them to trash can, the trash can changes into another symbol ( eject?)

Any ideas?

No Sir. Nor can I even open the movie to play it .

Could it be something to do with iCloud backup ? Some video clips I have

from 10 years ago appear to be getting backed up ( and sometimes

duplicated) every day
