Using the Wise Disk Cleaner Program to Delete Bad Files

Over time, junk files, temporary files, all kinds of system files and other items you do not need at all accumulate on your Windows computer. Those useless files take up valuable hard disk space and slow down your computer. Wise Disk Cleaner can delete these unnecessary files on your hard disk to free up disk space and make your computer run faster. It also provides many custom options to allow users to clean up more files they don’t need. Wise Disk Cleaner can scan and remove them quickly, making it one of the most efficient disk cleaners out there

I highly recommend this software utility. I have used this software on many PCs throughout the world. Best of all, there is a free version. This software is a companion product to CCleaner as discussed in a previous post. In troubleshooting a PC, I use them both to clean up a computer.

This is for a Windows based operating system from XP to Windows 10

Download and Install

Click here to download the free version of Wise Disk Cleaner and follow these steps:

  • Click the Free Download button
  • You will see the download file in the lower left of your screen
  • Click to install the software and follow the simple instructions
  • A desktop/laptop shortcut will be added
  • Close any running program(s)
  • Empty your Recycle Bin
  • Click or double click the shortcut to run

After installation you will see the following image:

Run the Software

  • Click the Scan button to begin

Your screen will be similar to the following image:

Notice the results of my scan; the number of files to be deleted, the disk space to be saved and number of Traces to be deleted are shown. Traces are messages that can occupy a large amount of disk space, and they can be deleted without effecting your PC. When you run this software for the first time, do not be surprised at the scan results.

  • Click the Clean button to delete the files

You may receive popup menus regarding closing your browser like the image below:

  • Click Yes

In my case, I responded with a No because I needed my browser running to document this post. Normally, you would respond with a Yes.

The Results

After cleaning, you will see the results like the image below:

That’s it, you are done. You may set up a schedule on when to run the software. I recommend you run this program weekly.

  • Close the program
  • Restart your PC
