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.
