Editors' review

DiskMax is an easy-to-use utility that helps users clear their computers of unneeded, space-wasting files. With three levels of customizable scans, DiskMax makes it easy to free up valuable disk space.

DiskMax's interface is quite plain and simple. Users simply click on Quick, Standard, or Detailed to select the type of scan they want to perform. We wish that the interface itself explained what was involved in which type of scan, but the Help file--which must be downloaded separately from the creator's Web site--does contain details about each one. The Quick scan, for example, scans only the Recycle Bin and user profile, while the Standard scan adds such areas as the Windows update, event logs, and defragmentation. With each step the program asks users whether they want to delete unneeded files, and users can choose whether they want the program to remember their responses for future scans. Overall, we found DiskMax to be quite effective and easy to use. Our only major issue with it--one that we have with almost all programs of this type--is that users should make sure that they know what they're deleting before allowing the program to get rid of so-called junk files. The Help file provides more guidance than we typically see from such programs, which we appreciated, but users may wish to do further research before proceeding.

DiskMax is free. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Works great!"

    November 03, 2013   |   By Ricker1970

    Version: DiskMax 4.71

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    I wish the view was larger.

    Summary

    Fast,easy and does the job well,from a quicky to detailed.

    "Very good but just one BIG PROBLEM......"

    October 25, 2013   |   By melen001

    Version: DiskMax 4.71

    Pros

    Works perfectly well and does everything it says it does.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    BYE BYE Diskmax.... Good tool but sneaky installation including Babylon DLL's... just not right...

    "Seems to work without much damage"

    October 05, 2013   |   By ckcomodo

    Version: DiskMax 4.71

    Pros

    Thorough cleaning of specified items. Fast. Does not appear to strip away away anything essentia, unlike CCleaner, if carefully checked off what to remove.

    Cons

    Watch installation carefully, do not check anything that would otherwise remove data.

    Summary

    Unlike many, this one does what it is told to do rapidly without damage from bad will or ignorance if specified carefully.

    Updated on Oct 5, 2013

    From further usage, appears to incorporate many functions listed in CNET as separate program utilities--independently issued from other developers using different algorithms. Like almost an all-in-one cleaner, but differently operating.
