Yeah I think you should use caution with this app. I have my HDD in 4 partitions and in my C drive alone I could save 1G out of 11G being used.
Seems to me the deleting is up to the user though??

it works really well! it cleans out 0.0 MB files, files that go nowhere, empty folders, iso folders that you don't need anymore, and duplicate files. that's where i went wrong. i deleted some essential windows files and had to reinstall windows.

apparently i know just enough about computers to make myself dangerous

Ouch! I hope all is up and running well again.

I see how the program CAN be useful, but you really need to look things over first. It gave me the options of deleting loads of old DVDD and ImgBurn logs that were just sitting around which was fine.

But I wouldn't want to be selecting all + delete anytime soon.

Were the user comments wrong and it does delete? Does it have the clean feature?

definitely, if you did a restore point before doing all the deleting, if I'm not mistaken

This app is no CCleaner that's for sure,lol.

I can see where this program has it's uses, located files etc. But, the name of the program says it all...Disk Analyzer.
