The daily use of your PC brings the accumulation of junk files into your hard disk, where they normally remain forever, even though they are supposed to be "temporary" files. The simple action of browsing the Internet, for example, accumulates lots of files on your disk, usually without your knowledge or consent. Advanced Disk Cleaner is a powerful tool that helps you detect and get rid of those junk files, allowing you to recover wasted disk space and to get a lighter system.
The program offers a friendly and intuitive user interface without any complicated elements. It offers you three tabs ─ one for the fast cleaning method, another one for the deep cleaning method, and a third one for the program's options. The fast cleaning method is, ironically, harder to use than the deep cleaning one. On the "Fast Cleaner" tab, you need to select the areas you want the program to analyze from a really large number of options. They are classified into categories, such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, System, Internet, Multimedia, Applications, and others. On the "Deep Cleaner" tab, on the other hand, you just need to select the drive or drives you want the program to analyze and press the "start scan" button.
Finally, the Options tab allows you to select the file types you want the program to look for, and to activate the scheduler. You can schedule automatic system scans on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, or at a specified day and time. Even though the deep cleaning method takes longer than the fast one, in general terms the program performs its tasks very quickly. Once you are given the results, you can get rid of the useless files found with a single click of a button.
Summing up, Advanced Disk Cleaner is a powerful yet easy-to-use software tool that helps you recover wasted disk space by detecting and removing obsolete junk files from your hard disk. The program allows you to achieve this in an easy and fast way as well.
