Editors' Review

+
This application easily deletes many types of files that accumulate on your hard drive, but it is slow and not secure. Purge's bland and basic interface is cluttered with numerous buttons and check boxes. The program is preset to delete Windows temporary files, browser cache files, and temporary Office Suite detritus. Aside from the predefined junk file types, you can add additional parameters to the delete list using a simple wizard. Quickly choose folders, subfolders, and file types including options such as file extension, age, date, and size. The program automatically moves files into the Recycle Bin, a specified folder, or permanent deletion. The lack of a file-shredding option is a major security concern. The very basic help file only is in German. Since this utility is through and therefore slow it is best for those who infrequently clean their hard drives. Any level of user will find this program easy to operate, but novices may not understand why some files are acceptable for deletion.
