Editors' Review

Koshy John's DiskMax is a basic but effective (and free) system cleaning tool with some advantages. For example, it walks you step-by-step through each cleaning stage, explaining what it's about to remove and even warning you when caution is advised (like when you're about to delete your stored passwords). Of course, DiskMax cleans your browsers, caches, and temporary files, but it also targets things other tools don't, such as old Windows Updates and Event Logs, and it has an SSD-safe disk defragmenter. It remembers your choices, so the next time you run it, DiskMax does it all.

DiskMax detected our 64-bit Windows installation and shifted to the appropriate installer, and it checked for updates (with our permission) the first time we ran it. Aside from some social media links (and a "Donate" button) DiskMax offers four scan buttons: "Quick," "Standard," "Detailed," and "Complete," plus a check box to clear saved preferences. With security tools, we usually start with a full scan, but with system cleaners it's better to start small and work your way up, so we clicked "Q" to initiate DiskMax's Quick scan, which targets the Recycle Bin, browsers, and caches. DiskMax gives good advice in general, strongly recommending the safest or best course of action. DiskMax offers to clear all your Firefox or Chrome data since it clears cookies, saved forms, and passwords, but we recommend clicking "No" and dealing with each stage, individually. DiskMax adds more cleaning options through the Standard, Detailed, and Complete scans, each of which replicates some of the other scans' options. We had to run through the same basic steps each time we moved up to the next scan, but only while DiskMax set our preferences. Subsequent scans were quicker. DiskMax also optimized our disks. The Deep Scan tool is only recommended after you've read DiskMax's Help file.

DiskMax is fast, safe, and effective, both in daily cleaning and for less-frequent, deeper cleaning. Plus it's free. It's a worthy addition to your menu of system utilities.
