It did everthing I wanted it to.I like it better than CCleaner.The only way anyone could get any extra unwanted download promotions is if they don't pay attention and uncheck things and that makes it their fault,not just on this download but every download.
I wish the view was larger.
Fast,easy and does the job well,from a quicky to detailed.
Works perfectly well and does everything it says it does.
There is one very BIG PROBLEM. It installed Babylon Toolbar DLL's and that is not part of the deal. I did not see anywhere when installing advising that Babylon Toolbar was to be installed or it' DLL's either so I am not very trust worthy of this software. Who knows, maybe when up-dating it just might be that the missing files for Babylon Toolbar just might be installed with the up-date. Who knows what else can happen... I'm just saying so I'm not taking any risk so I am uninstalling this tool after I finish this review. Sorry Diskmax... nice tool but very poor "surprise" included in the installation.
BYE BYE Diskmax.... Good tool but sneaky installation including Babylon DLL's... just not right...
Thorough cleaning of specified items. Fast. Does not appear to strip away away anything essentia, unlike CCleaner, if carefully checked off what to remove.
Watch installation carefully, do not check anything that would otherwise remove data.
Unlike many, this one does what it is told to do rapidly without damage from bad will or ignorance if specified carefully.

Has great potential and frees up more space than cleanmgr.exe
Constant reinstallation due to forced updates make it useless
Good program made useless by forced updates. Not part of my everyday toolkit due to installation hassles. Not a full replacement for cleanmgr.exe
The have my review removed twice already, unfair game in this company;
they put the babylon and claro registry keys in your system even if you select not to install.
They manage to remove bad reviews from this program, very fishy.
BABYLON SOFTWARE INSIDE ! ! ! !

Do you know why Download.com removed your review? Because it is untrue. You have written the very same review for lots of optimization software. Except for maybe one. Stop trying to play out your own agenda by making stuff up. Download and scan the DiskMax installer at VirusTotal.com and see what turns up: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/4a9bb96f200570b3bf6fc3acac6178babea3076bc3d3a2d95b3ac4967eb2094c/analysis/
seems to work better than any similar product
I have to configure it each time I run it.
This is quite an amazing optimizer. It really works as opposed to others that just delete some extra registry lines.
VPS and cloud server space usually charge by the GB, and previous generations of windows (Vista/7/2003/2008) take up 15-20GB of space. With a 25 or 30 GB hard drive, that's not a lot to work with, even with just a few apps running. With Win 2008 R2 64 bit enterprise, I was able to recovre about 5 GB of space on my first run of a deep scan (Microsoft, what the heck are you installing there).
Subsequent cleans can recover 300-1000MB of space. I'm guessing that windows updates leave around too much data?
The author does collect usage data. But mainly because he does not get too much manual feedback. There has to be a way for the author to actually maintain the software for free, so it is a tradeoff. The information does not identify you personally anyway, but maybe the author can have a paid version where users could disable this?
Until windows 8, programs are allowed to install insane amounts of bloatware, and microsoft is largely to blame for starting the bloatware practice themselves. This program does remove unused and unneeded files to keep your system running lean. Simple, straightforward. I gave the author a donation.
Small install size.
Many cleaning steps to scrub your HDD of clutter.
Defrags & Optimizes Precache.
32 and 64 bit versions.
Has deep clean option.
Does what it claims it will do.
Biggest con is installs to user folder only. Even if I grab the exe from the installed folder, it will replace itself on my C drive user folder. To dev, always give install location options. Not portable, even though it is just an exe with one folder after install.
Just another great tool to keep handy with the arsenal of other tools we all use to clean our dirty registry, temp folders, and files left from general use and lazy programs that don't uninstall fully.
Not good for beginner.
I'd still like to know what "Deep Scan" is, but haven't had the time to learn about it. Anyone know?
Gets lots of stuff other software like CCleaner misses.
Nothing at all
If you need a simple cleaner, this will do the job.
