Portable system cleaner

Lean up your caches, temporary files, and more with this simple but efficient freeware.

Moo0 DiskCleaner Portable is free, completely portable, nicely designed, and efficient at its task, which is to centralize the cleaning of your browser caches, cookies, temporary Windows files, and other resource hogs. It's very easy to use, thanks to its simple but effective layout and minimal steps.

We downloaded and extracted Moo0 DiskCleaner to a desktop folder. It's a portable application that needs no installation but runs as soon as you click it, so it can go just about anywhere, including USB drives and other portable devices; it's also a good choice for scheduling automatic cleanups. We clicked the executable, and Moo0 DiskCleaner began scanning our system as soon as it opened. The program's attractive, skinnable interface listed all the places in our system holding temporary files that could safely be tossed, freeing up disk space and memory and tidying things up in general. Each entry displayed its name, size, location, icon, and a check box to select it for deleting. The program also lists the number of each item found, but better still is a brief description of what each is or what removing it does. Since this program simply lists what it finds, the user must select what gets tossed by checking each item individually. Not only does this prevent accidental autodeletions, but it also helps educate users about their system's many caches, history files, and other temporary repositories. We checked the items we wanted to delete and pressed Clean Now. A green progress bar quickly tracked our job, and a pop-up told us how much data had been deleted or would be deleted upon reboot. The View tab included lots of interesting options like transparency settings and a seemingly endless selection of skins, but the most intriguing was the ability to add a custom target to Moo0 DiskCleaner's list, such as your favorite app's cache folder; you can also do this from the interface. You can set Moo0 DiskCleaner to run on boot-up, of course.

We sure like Moo0 DiskCleaner Portable. Its simplicity makes it versatile, and its customizable look makes it interesting.
