Delete junk files with Soft4Boost Disk Cleaner
The 5 system areas that can be scanned and from where junk files can be deleted are listed above. For those who are not familiar what exactly each one of these options will delete, here are short explanations.
Temporary internet files are files which internet browsers create when visiting websites. Each website is made up of files, which have to be downloaded to your computer before being shown. With time these files can eat up a lot of disk space, especially if your browser’s temporary files storage is set to very high.
Be careful when working with Unused Empty Folders options, which will delete all the unused folders. You might delete folders that are empty now, but which are needed by other programs later on, and if they are not there, you might receive errors.
Broken shortcuts are shortcuts that are left after you delete a program. Leftover installation files and system temporary files are what falls under the Junk Files category. Last cleaning method, Recycle Bin should be pretty clear to everyone, so we’re not gonna mention it.
To find files click on Start Scanning program will then list them on the left side. After you do that clicking on the Fix Problems will start deleting unwanted files.
