Editors' review

Digeus Junk Files Cleaner is an easy-to-use program that scans for and deletes unneeded files that can negatively impact your computer's performance. Although the program has the potential to be very useful, as with all programs of this type, users will want to be very careful about what they delete.

The application's interface is quite basic and easy to understand. A series of check boxes allows users to select what kind of files they want to scan for, including temporary files, invalid shortcuts, obsolete items in Program Files, empty folders, and so-on. The program then performs the scan and provides a list of file names, along with the file type and size, that it has determined to be junk. Users simply uncheck the files that they don't want to delete, click the Delete button, and the program trashes the rest. The program is thorough--it found quite a few junk files on our computer -- but novice users especially will want to be wary of deleting everything that the program comes across. The program means well, but it isn't necessarily capable of making decisions about which files definitely are junk. Beginners might want to do some research or ask a more experienced friend before they go deleting files willy-nilly. The program's built-in Help file does a good job of offering basic instructions, but it won't tell you what files you should and should not delete.

Digeus Junk Files Cleaner is free to try, but the trial version only deletes five files per scan. The program installs a desktop icon without asking and, ironically, leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

    "You recommend this???"

    Version: Digeus Junk Files Cleaner 6.4

    Pros

    Its extremely hard for me to understand CNET's recommendation on this software if it can remove NECESSARY parts of your computer system!!! You must keep in mind that there are computer users out there that do NOT have the knowledge that you do.

    Cons

    Do NOT use if you are new to computers or if you are not able to correct the problems that this product may cause.

    "Junk Fiels Cleaner saves money and time!"

    Version: Junk Files Cleaner 3.5

    Pros

    I was thinking of buying new bigger HD, but when I run Junk Files Cleaner I saw how fast and large my disc can be. This tool cleared at about 1GB of junk info...that is huge space that can't be wasted and filled with files that you have never used!

    Cons

    It is not so popular on CNet, so I spent some time before I found it.

    Summary

    I am happy that I found Junk Files Cleaner, cause the benefits of using this utility is uncountable.

    Thank you!
