Software tools for cleaning up unwanted files can be found in several distinct flavors.
The most common of these are the the 'disk cleaner' or 'file cleaner' class utilities
such as the free CCCleaner software, which help remove temporary files, non-critical
files and restore free space to the available pool. Another distinct group is the
privacy protection type, that are especially suited to erasing browser tracks and
typed URL entries stored as history within your browser records, software such as
Privacy Eraser. Then there is the porn cleaner product, which can be used to discover
the exact source of pornography style images and movies or offensive adult material
and can manage the cleanup of the ones that should not be there. And a final category
of cleaner software comprising disk 'washing' software which can overwrite with 1s
and 0s, random data found in unused areas of the disk, so that nobody else can find
So many software products exist that in each case, view the matter of hard disk cleanup
in their own style. Many shareware programs can help you delete porn most
of which have other related cleaning functions. This is not the only function these
applications can perform; some can get rid of old data from free space, scan and
remove inappropriate material, find programs that are not properly licensed, and
find out how to recover disk space.
You can easily think of several reasons why taking a minute to clean un-wanted hard
drive files, the unwanted or unused ones, is a good plan. Your PC's speed, while
accessing disk files and documents is a result to some degree, of how many and how
large the files are on the computer drive. This occurs because the FAT tables get
large and the drive system is subjected to more stress when a request is received
for a file to be retrieved. We must realize that file continuity is disrupted and
this deteriorates drive performance. Your privacy is at stake too, as you keep more
and more private files on your computing system the higher the chance is that other
persons using your system could put your personal data to their own malicious uses.
Clearly the process of removing any excess or unwanted files can give us back space
which can then be put to other uses.
