Publisher description for Clean Machine
Clean Machine is a program for finding and deleting unnecessary files and Folders on your computer, consequently restoring hard-drive space, maintaining your privacy and keeping your system running smoother. Temporary/unnecessary files can get left on your computer for a number of reasons: While some applications clean up after themselves, others don't and leave temporary files behind. This can happen each time you use a particular application. If a program crashes, or the system fails, all temporary files Currently being used get left behind. Installing and uninstalling programs can leave behind such files. Internet Cache, History, cookies and file links to recent documents store up over time. Some of the symptoms of not deleting unnecessary/temporary files can include: Wasted disk space which can impede disk drive performance Superfluous fragmentation of disk(s) Some applications may begin to function improperly (including Lock up and fatal errors) Lost internet and network connections Clean Machine is fully configurable, allowing you to control what is deleted. Files and folders can be either sent to the recycle bin, deleted, wiped or backed up in a zip file. Recycling enables you to recover files/folders which the program deleted. Deleting means the files are not sent to the recycle bin, but still may be recovered using specialised software programs. Wiping files provides security by firstly erasing the contents of the file and then deleting it, so even if the file is recovered the contents are useless. Backing up the files to a zip file provides a safety measure in case you need to restore a file/group of files. Once you are reasonably sure you no longer need the files you can delete the backup file(s) created by the program.
