One-step clean up

Clean up your computer, removing unneeded programs and finding space-hogging files, with this one-stop space retriever.

Need3Space attempts to combine several different types of space-saving software into one economical download. While this sets the bar high, this program's performance may make other products obsolete.

This program offers a colorful interface with easy-to-distinguish commands. Each button on the left-hand side of the screen performs a different space-saving function for the user. The right side gives a clear glimpse of what function that button is performing. Of the six options, the Analyze Disk Space button seems to be the most intriguing. With one click, users can search through specific folders or their entire hard drive to get a read of what is taking so much space. Another useful button is the Uninstaller, which shows each program clearly and easily deletes it from the computer. In addition, there are tools for seeking and cleaning up temporary files and cache, as well as a Recycle Bin cleaner.

On top of these basic options, users will discover smaller tasks Need3Space can also perform. This attention to detail and its simplicity make this a great program. However, there are points of mild irritation, especially when a description is given of a program in terms that users may not understand, as is the case with the Percentage column on the Analyze Disk function.

These mild irritations are no match for Need3Space's fantastic combination of space analyzer, uninstaller, and temporary file removal system. Anyone interested in clearing space on a computer should try this download.
