what is the "search for"

I have a question. I have an IMAC 10.6.8 with 8GB ram. In the finder there is a search for--movies, images,documents.(28,000 images ) Is that where every image,doc and movie on my MAC can be found? How about deleted items? Also, I noticed that there are a lot of duplicates. Can I safely delete these duplicates? And is it a good idea to delete stuff to free up space? It looks like there are snippets of images. Can I delete these also? Thanks

Do not delete anything from within the search window that you are not absolutely sure what it is.
That is not where anything is kept - it is a search - the same as a search in Windows - it is not a folder on your drive.
edit: Actually, don't delete anything from within the search window - you want to delete it, go to the folder where it is located to delete it - and make absolutely sure you know exactly what it is you are deleting. I would suggest if it's not something you knowingly put on the drive and now want to delete it - don't.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
