Disk Cleaner was inspired by
one of the system tools that can be found in Windows 98. As I was
running Windows 95 myself those days, and upgrading my machine to 98 was
not an option, I decided to write such a tool myself. However, Windows
98+ users may find that Disk Cleaner is smaller and faster, and one of
its virtues is the ability to run quietly, i.e. on startup. This means
that you can clear the cache every time you boot Windows.
Disk Cleaner is focused on
ease of use, speed and a small size, both when downloading and when
installed (the installation file is just over 360 kb). It is fast, since
the crucial parts are written with just the plain Windows API giving
high search and remove performance. Disk Cleaner is also entirely
self-contained: no other (large) DLLs are necessary to run the
application, so it can even be run from a floppy without trouble. Handy
to remove your junk from public machines.
