This plain, but efficient system cleaner quickly takes out the trash. CleanDisk's basic interface doesn't bother with cool graphics, or the latest effects. It's a simple checkbox selection, and text list display. Most users will pick up the program without ever cracking open the simple two-step manual, and nearly everything is accomplished with one click.

It really is easy to set a scan with CleanDisk. You check as many as you like of the preset drives or paths. Enabling, adding or deleting paths takes only a click or two. Then you add as many scan types as you desire. The 18 preset scan types perform searches as general as finding zero byte files to very specific ones such as choosing only broken shell links. Adding new scan types is easily accomplished with a short two-question dialog. Starting the scan is only a button click, and the results window lists all files matching the scan type. Sorting the file takes just a click on a column header, and the context menu lets you quickly select or deselect all. You can also choose one file at a time to delete, recycle, move or view.

We found CleanDisk one of the easiest to use system cleaners we've tested. We did wish for a scheduled clean function, but foregoing the many bells and whistles of similar packages makes this application fast, efficient, and power-user friendly. The 30-day demo gives users of every experience level more than enough time to discover this program's usefulness.
