Editors' review

It's not advanced in the true sense of the word, but this tool quickly scans for and removes junk files on your PC. Advanced Disk Cleaner is designed with the novice in mind, and scans are easily initiated with the touch of a button. Junk files are listed separately, and you can quickly select all of the files or handpick which ones to delete. As it scans, a helpful status bar shows how many folders have been scanned and how many junk files have been found. By default, the program scans for certain extensions like TMP and BAK, and you can add or remove extensions.

We liked the three options that allow you to completely remove junk files, place them in the Recycle Bin, or move them to a user-specified folder. The program also provides access to your computer's RegEdit and Control Panel. You won't find other tools (like a defragmenter) to manage or optimize disk space with this program. And even though its free, you will need a registration code to continue using the program after the 30-day trial. Despite the minor hassle of registration, Advanced Disk Cleaner can help any level user get rid of unnecessary files.

    "Can't get version 6.0 to load completely"

    June 23, 2013   |   By ritchie58

    Version: Advanced Disk Cleaner 6.0

    Pros

    Installed over top the old 5.0 version with no problems. No other good merits to report if the program will not load properly.

    Cons

    Please see summary.

    Summary

    As a long time user of the older 5.0 version I was pleased to see that Innovative Solutions finally released a new 6.0 version after going so long without any updates to this program. Installed 6.0 and found out that the program is useless until it refreshes the list of installed applications on your machine. The problem is this process does not stop! I've been letting it run for almost half an hour even as I write this and all I get is this message: Please wait while we are refreshing the list of applications. Until this is completed you can't access the options, run a scan or do anything else with the program! Very disappointing! Maybe I.S. has a support forum or something that I can get some more info as to why this is occurring.

    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, SP1 and all current MS updates.

    June 26, 2010   |   By openreel36

    Version: Advanced Disk Cleaner 5.0

    Pros

    Theres Nothing

    Cons

    It's NOT FREE

    Summary

    Says its free in the quick sspecs and when you download the program you find out youget a 30 day "free" trial. These people need to take more responsability for what they allow on their website, this was nothing but another LIE by CNET and download.com

    March 14, 2010   |   By zorabelle

    Version: Advanced Disk Cleaner 5.0

    Pros

    Finds a lot of files that need to be discarded in a matter of seconds..Saves you the trouble of looking for them and having them slow down your computer.

    Cons

    Haven't found anything negative about this download.

    Summary

    I see that this product finds files that you would not find yourself,saving you the time it would take to locate the files.

    "you'll be stuck with it"

    September 14, 2009   |   By macsaxeman

    Version: Advanced Disk Cleaner 5.0

    Pros

    was ok to use but no better than some others thought I would try it

    Cons

    nearly impossible to remove. even with their faq's

    Summary

    will never again use anything from inovative solutions. This is the second (free) product I've used from them but absolutely the last. Even with the nag screen the wise product is FAR superior.
