Pros: Wise is one of the more generous freeware offering companies and on website many are also portable ;as well as, .exe installable. This download offering is the .exe ( the portable, .zip, is 2.6mb (6.06mb extracted) For me, the best part is the Advanced Cleaner tab. It selects items by extensions (note the Advanced Settings text button , lower right, to customize selections. Has helpful right-click options.
Cons: Common Cleaner tab: This ,apparently, only does the Internet Explorer browser. I tried adding the Winapp2 to the portable folder, but no effect. No individual size breakdown , but at least has category/subgroup size.
Other Thoughts: Rodger (previous poster),
please , do tell us, with our eyebrows still raised, what, primarily, was deleted to get 2gb back?!
Was that under the Slimming System tab?
Stuff of that magnitude often is from the Microsoft Windows security /updates installer copies/(un)installers.
Maybe a couple of video games?
The Settings: General: has 'auto get news letter', 'show auto clean notice' and 'check for updates weekly' set as defaults.
Can also select 'Secure delete" (not sure how many overwrites)
Auto Run tab can create One-click desktop icon
Has Exclusion tab
Has clean Scheduler
The Disk Defrag is ok but I didn't care for its Optimizer algorithm
I give the whole a 3.5
