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.
With DiskMax, your system will be peppier, applications will launch faster, files will open quicker, games will run better, and you will be happier. Running DiskMax from time to time is recommended to keep your system in shape. Even if you are an advanced user, DiskMax will be useful to you since it automates all the tasks required to keep your system clean and fast, leaving you to enjoy the whole new experience.
