Surprisingly enough, this utility is portable, meaning that you can bypass the installation process and therefore, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to get updated with new entries.
Aside from that, if you drop the program files to a portable storage unit, you can use File Cleaner on any computer you have access to.
The simple and intuitive GUI is built with a navigation panel, a folder structure and a pane in which to view details. It is suitable to all types of people, regardless of their previous experience with the IT world.
The application can detect all the web browser you have installed on the PC and enables you to clean the history, temporary files, cookies, typed URLs, menu add-ons and passwords stored by these. It is possible to analyze the registry for missing shared DLLs, unused file extensions, fonts, sound events, empty registry keys etc. and delete them.
In addition to that, you can also shred files and folders, restore or delete registry backups, analyze and clean recent documents, temporary files, clipboard data, search history, logs and memory dumps, as well as activate a scheduler every month, week or day at a specified hour.
During analyzing and cleaning, the CPU and memory usage is quite significant, yet this is to be expected with this type of tool.
All in all, File Cleaner proves to be a useful piece of software, with powerful analyzing and deleting capabilities, good response time and user-friendly interface.
• The File Shredder protects your privacy and ensures your security by completely allowing you to completely erase files, so that they don’t leave any traces. When you simply delete a file, it’s not really gone and can be restored with the help of file recovery software.
• The Real Time Protect feature was developed so that users could concentrate on their work without having to worry about temporary files cleanup.
• The Scheduler lets the user schedule the specific time when FileCleaner should perform the cleanup automatically.
