Disk Cleaner was inspired by
one of the system tools that can be found in Windows 98. 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.
