Disk Cleaner Portable is an easy-to-use tool that will quickly remove redundant files and data from your hard drive and Registry.

Just as with most similar programs, Disk Cleaner will erase your browser cache, history, cookies and more.

There's also support for cleaning up after many other applications, though. So on our test PC Disk Cleaner offered to erase the caches for Java and Acrobat reader, for instance.

And the program can also protect your privacy by deleting all kinds of PC tracks. For example it's able to wipe the Windows Recent Documents menu, your Internet Explorer Autocomplete form history, and "Recent File" lists for OpenOffice 3, Acrobat Reader, MediaPlayer Classic and Foxit PDF Reader, amongst many other apps.

Perhaps best of all, Disk Cleaner can easily be extended by creating simple text files. So if you've some other area of your hard drive that you'd like to clean, then configure Disk Cleaner accordingly and you'll be able to wipe those files or folders with a click.


There's a lot of competition in this area, but the ability to extend Disk Cleaner through simple text-based plug-ins makes it stand out - if you'll use this then the program is definitely worth a try
