WX Disk Clear can simply scan and remove junk files from your system.
Another entry in the disk cleaning category. Itâ€™s pretty lightweight but does have a few potential negatives. WX Disk Clear will scan and remove junk files, but it wonâ€™t tell you what itâ€™s removing. Just click scan and â€œclear now.â€ We have used it on a couple of systems with no issues. The company uses the bottom of the screen to advertise their other products and to share the program with your friends. The update feature is a tad odd because it showed you when it was last updated, but you had better remember when you last updated it because it just directly downloads the file again. In a portable app, this isnâ€™t a good idea. Itâ€™s not for everyone but if you want to only clean junk files more efficiently without getting too involved this might be worth a shot.
Now, the Major would never put this out here without making sure it was tested first. Since my work machine had a ton of recycle bin files and has not been cleaned in a week, I decided to test it there as well as in VMWare. In VMWare, it found about 632 files which feels a little aggressive to me as that is typically a few days into a clean install. In Windows (see screenshots) it found approximately 1.6 GB to clear where CCLeaner, a typically conservative program, found 1.5 GB. I rebooted and everything was fine.
Much like the aforementioned bad way of checking for new versions, the files it deletes does not update or refresh either. In other words, if it removes 549 files, it leaves 549 files as removed up there. Now, that might be alright in most cases but when you see it your first thought is that you need to remove files again. It should have a â€œlast scanâ€ and â€œfiles removedâ€ note attached which would also be nice to remind you when you last updated.
