Using Free Disk Cleaner 2017
The installer gave us the option to create both a desktop shortcut and quick launch icon but we only selected one option. The lightweight program installed fast, and we chose to launch it immediately, which was the default option.
The application opened a simple window with three tabs on the upper part respectively marked "Disk Cleaner," "Disk Analyzer" and "More Products," with the "Disk Cleaner" tab opened by default. It displayed a list of the disks connected to our computer, including such details as their formats, capacities and free spaces.
Three buttons on the right part of the user interface allowed us to perform the desired tasks. For example, we could create filters by specifying the types of files that we wanted to include or the folders to exclude. The "Options" button let us configure whether we wanted the cleaner to include hidden files or send junk files to the Recycle Bin. Alternatively, we could simply click the "Scan" button and let the program use the default settings.
During the scanning process, Free Disk Cleaner 2017 displayed a list of junk files, including their respective locations and sizes. Once the search was complete, it displayed a pop-up window to inform us. It listed the total number of rubbish files found and their total size.
When we clicked on a file in the list, its details appeared on the lower part of the user interface. The details included file name, type, size and last access date. We could open the file, its directory or view its properties. We simply clicked the "Clean" button to remove the selected junk files, and they were all selected by default.
The "Disk Analyzer" checked selected disk and listed files in various categories, such as documents, compressed, audio, video and image files. Although we had different types of files, however, the tool placed all of them under "Others."
If you want a simple way of having a clean computer that is devoid of junk files, then Free Disk Cleaner 2017 will help you. The lightweight program quickly identifies and removes rubbish files, and you can configure the way you want it to scan your computer.
