Has anyone here used it?


I myself have used it for awhile and it seems to me that it can find more wasted space than CCleaner finds. The program also has a few more features than CCleaner.

There are a few programs that can find junk/empty files or folders.
Haven't seen an all in one.

One thing to keep in mind is don;t go crazy on cleaning, or you might do damage.
Registry cleaning is a high risk for very minimal cleaning and performance increase, if any.

I will check it out though. Ty for info.

EDIT: I just installed it. Some stuff looks a bit scary. As I mentioned there are some other programs out there that do all those things, separately and in more detail - this reminds me of those.
The cleaning of "Junk" files...I'm not too sure what all those extensions are, so I kinda stay away for now. Anyone know what all the .syd .$$$ .~ .--- etc. are about? Just temporary files?

The registry cleaner did find a lot more than CCleaner - but I'm not too sure what all that is. So far it seems there are a lot of invalid files...but ya.
CCleaner seems to be on safe side.

StartupMan (Start Up manager) seems kinda weak? I have 4 things on start up. Reports 2. Missed nVidia driver.

But no big. It seems like a very deep cleaner.
