Windows applications create several files on your hard drive for temporarily storing the data. These files are supposed to be removed when application terminates. Often, they will not been removed because of a program error, sloppy architecture, your system gets reset or does not shut down properly, or another application locks up or crash. It is important to know that any file which is left behind in this manner will remain on your system unless you manually search and remove it. Over time, these junk and obsolete files can accumulate to megabytes of wasted hard drive space, as well as turn into potential error-producing cross-linked drive references. XP Disk Cleaner targets these specific types of files which are missed by common disk utilities like Uninstaller, Defrag and Scandisk etc.

- Another important reason to clean your computer is to secure your information from intruders. When working with the internet, the browser records all sorts of personal information such as name, birthday, address, credit card numbers, and much more. This information is used to automatize working with certain websites and is updated in the course of dealing with those websites.

In many cases you have to open the files and skim through them before deleting. Our utility will help you with this task and save you time. There is a special routine for scanning user folders. The user can specify a folder, properties of the files in that folder, and the number of days to keep specified files. For example, if the user chooses to keep certain files for 5 days, the program will purge all files older than 5 days. This helps to clean out not just old files and documents, but also archives and back-up files.

Files can be deleted four different ways: permanent deleting from the disk, deleting to recycle bin. The last way allow the user to resurrect deleted files and folders in case they are needed.

All actions of our program are logged into a pre-defined log file. This allows the user to track all actions, in case the user was absent during the scanning (automatic cleaning) or the scanning was performed by somebody else.
