Disk Cleaner is a free tool to quickly and easily free disk space that is used by temporary files like those in the system temporary folder, the Internet Explorer Cache and Cookies folder, and the Recycle Bin. Disk Cleaner is absolutely free from adware and spyware.

Disk Cleaner was inspired by one of the system tools that can be found in Windows 98. As I was running Windows 95 myself those days, and upgrading my machine to 98 was not an option, I decided to write such a tool myself. However, Windows 98+ users may find that Disk Cleaner is smaller and faster, and one of its virtues is the ability to run quietly, i.e. on startup. This means that you can clear the cache every time you boot Windows.

Disk Cleaner is focused on ease of use, speed and a small size, both when downloading and when installed (the installation file is just over 360 kb). It is fast, since the crucial parts are written with just the plain Windows API giving high search and remove performance. Disk Cleaner is also entirely self-contained: no other (large) DLLs are necessary to run the application, so it can even be run from a floppy without trouble. Handy to remove your junk from public machines.


On the right you can find a screenshot of Disk Cleaner. It is very easy to use: select the items you would like to clean, press the clean button, and you're done! Despite the ease of use, the extendibility by plug-ins, either full-featured DLLs or just simple text files, make that Disk Cleaner can also be used by power users to clean specific items. All that is needed to create a simple plug-in is a text editor, such as notepad. If you have any comments, please post these in the forum.

Please note: Disk Cleaner is provided as is, without any warranty. Though it is my fullest intention to let Disk Cleaner delete only files that should be perfectly safe to be deleted, in the case that it doesn't, I have no responsibility for this. I can only hope that you will provide some constructive feedback about what happened, so I can reconstruct the event and adapt future versions.
