CleanUp! - flushing out the useless files

review from ClifNotes, Dec 2006, Updated Aug 2008, permalink _ Disk Cleanup


Comment from Debbie (2006)

I Have used CCleaner for 3 years, but recently downloaded a program called "WindowsCleanUp" that does a great job too ... just thought I'd share.


Thank you Debbie


CleanUp 4.52 is available at the authors website. I donated a dollar to help him out when I first visited his site in December of 2006. If everyone who uses this program clicks the donation button and donates, he'll have no problem keeping his site running.


The author recommends that you backup your hard drive before you use this program. You can also run it in Demo mode the first time and it will ask you to verify files before it deletes them.


Just be aware that you could lose a few files with CleanUp. Back in 2006, it deleted at least one file I didn't want to. I have a bad habit of renaming files to .BAK when I save them. This program deletes BAK files by default. I've been using CleanUp since I first wrote about it here in 2006. I trust it and I'm not afraid of losing files to it anymore.


I think you'll get a kick out of the sound that CleanUp makes when you tell it to start working.
