Thread: disk cleaner

  1. #1

    Default disk cleaner

    Can anyone recommend a free program to scrub my disk. Not looking for something which will fox the FBI. Just something quick so that if my PC has to go to the menders, they won't find delete passwords, addresses etc.

    EasyCleaner is a small program which searches the Windows registry for entries that are pointing nowhere. EasyCleaner also lets you delete all kinds of unnecessary files such as temps and backups. You can search for duplicate files and you can view some interesting info about your disk space usage! You are also able to manage startup programs, invalid shortcuts and add/remove software list. ToniArts may not be held accountable in any way if EasyCleaner affects your computer in a negative way.

    The above program is Shareware, but includes a console utility which is the engine for the above program. The console app works easily and does not require a fee. Though, if you are unfamiliar with CLI apps it may not serve you well.


    Another option is

    I've never used this, but it appears to be what you want.

    Be carefull deleting duplicate files!! Your computer may need them!!

    I ran a program once that removed DUPLICATE FILES and i had all kinds of problems afterwards........ (Thankfully i was able to recover the files using an UNDELETE program then i got rid of that program)

    one should never delete anything by program or by manual methods unless one has sound backups and knows what they are doing,far better to have less disk space than a pc tthat will not load the os
