Just like your car, it's important to keep your computer tuned up to ensure that it runs at its best. Regularly removing old and unnecessary files is crucial, and RidNacs aims to help you with this task by analyzing your PC's disk space usage. Unfortunately, its lack of viable help and vague results left a lot to be desired.
We appreciate the program's clean user interface. It consists of a small window with commands at the top for choosing directories to analyze and a blank panel for displaying results. But upon closer inspection, we found its menu items and commands a bit vague. The program doesn't include any kind of viable Help feature; it offers a link to the publisher's Web site, but unless you speak fluent German, you're out of luck. We started by selecting the Choose Directory option and choosing to analyze our C drive. The program quickly went to work letting us watch, in real time, as it scanned our folders. Bar graphs represented percentages for each folder, but we weren't sure what the percentages represented. Do the graphs reflect the percentage of free space left in each folder, or just the opposite? It was hard to tell, and because we don't speak German, we couldn't find an answer.
RidNacs cleanly installs and uninstalls. We do not recommend this program.
RidNacs is a very fast disk space usage analyzer. It scans your local drives, network drives, or single directories and represents the result of the analysis clearly in a tree view with a percentage bar. This gives the user a quick and easy way to identify the largest directories and it's very useful for cleaning up the disk.
