Hard Drive Cleaner

There is a great breadth and depth of products online that can handle the issue of drive cleaning by adopting different methods. A popular example is the hard drive cleaner, you pay for some and others you can download at no charge. But this is not all that software can do, some can get rid of old data from free space, scan and remove inappropriate material, detect pirated software, and show where your disk space is being taken up.

Two possibilities exist for cleaning a hard disk; you can go the manual path, meaning you select and delete items by hand, or software can be employed to do the job. Manual scanning means going through the drive areas and choosing what parts of the drive are no longer required, and removing them as required. The manual method is more thorough than running a cleanup program but can be repetitive and time intensive. You can also make use of software tools that make use of system dates which include file properties, last opened dates, etc. and then automatically create a list of the files to be cleaned.
