Editors' review

Wise Disk Cleaner scans, repairs, and defragments your computer to keep it running as smoothly and efficiently as possible. No matter how many problem files you have hiding on your hard drive, this handy utility will find and remove or repair them and get you back on track.

Pros

Fast: Both scanning and fixing took less than a minute during testing, making this one of the more efficient disk cleaners out there. That way you won't have to wait long to begin enjoying a speedier PC experience.

Scheduling and customization: There are multiple options for scheduling regular scans and repairs, as well as for determining which actions the program carries out during these routine procedures. Set specific days and times for scans, and pick out the types of files you want checked and removed through the app's intuitive interface.

Accessible: No matter how much experience you have working with this type of program, you'll have no trouble getting what you need from Wise Disk Cleaner. There are all-inclusive scans for beginning users, and more advanced users can customize scans to suit their specific needs and preferences.

Cons

Slow to defragment: While just about every other function of the program was carried out quickly, defragmenting took a long time, even on a machine without a lot of data or wasted space. This doesn't have to be too much of an inconvenience, though, as long as you plan for it in advance.

Bottom Line

Wise Disk Cleaner is efficient and free, making it a good choice for keeping your PC running smoothly. No matter how tech-savvy you are, you're sure to find what you need in this versatile app.

    "works like promised but.."

    August 12, 2014   |   By camper90

    Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 8.23.583

    Pros

    Fast and easy to use for those that are tech inept like myslef.
    Free

    Cons

    Lets the Bing search/conduit browser hijacking software install with out users knowledge. This is incredibly stupid and I can't believe that a trusted site such as cnet would allow software on their site to include known spyware and malware to piggy back on a disk cleaner of all programs. This isn't a horrible because the conduit software is rather easy to find and remove from my computer but none the less the potential for identity theft and numerous other highly illegal activities if this software isn't quickly noticed is alarming.

    Summary

    Good program that is fast and easy to use but the addition of known unethical third-party software is a deal breaker for me. Drop the pap and i would keep and purchase the upgraded version. But why would I give my debit card number to a company that intentionally bundles their software with malware and spyware programs.

    "The Jury Is Still Out, But..."

    February 01, 2014   |   By BearPuppy

    Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 8.03.573

    Pros

    The really nice thing about this program is that it leaves the Registry alone, while looking for privacy and junk files to clean up. More problems are caused by overzealous Registry cleaners, than just about any other type of utility program - and I speak from the voice of a Tech Support minion.

    It also adds a HDD defragger, with an optimization setting to further tweak HDD performance.

    Cons

    I would request of the developers that they add a setting to provide people with more information as to the what and why a file is selected for removal.

    Summary

    I'm inherently suspicious of all-in-one programs. Having said that, restricting the program to just cleaning functions may be the best compromise between ease of use and safety in removal. So far I'm liking what I experience.

    "Quick & Effective"

    January 06, 2014   |   By cg57

    Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 7.99

    Pros

    I've used CC, Glary & Slim Cleaner, but this one seems to do a much better job. It got rid of almost 10Gb of crap, including all those useless install stub folders.

    Cons

    None so far.

    "Highly useful and effective."

    November 30, 2013   |   By merglerr

    Version: Wise Disk Cleaner 7.97.568

    Pros

    Superior to any MS offerings (even those you pay for). The best free one I've found thus far. Straightforward and effective user interface with fine usability.

    Cons

    Does not seem to be multithreaded which would speed it up on machines with multiple cores.

    Summary

    Another excellent offering from Wise. An essential addition to my toolbox and it's FREE. Who can ask for a better combination?
