In time, your computer can store a lot of unnecessary data on the hard drive, reducing its overall performance and ultimately causing serious damage to your operating system.
Uniblue MaxiDisk is an application created to help you deal with this problem and avoid future ones. Through its user-friendly interface it provides you with the means to analyze your disk and clean out the unneeded files. And while some files can not be deleted, the application makes it possible for you to defragment the drive in order to reduce load times.
To scan a drive all you have to do is select the appropriate one and click the scan button. During the analysis, the application displays the drive’s capacity and when it was last time scanned. Depending on the size of the drive, the time it takes for the application to finish the process varies but it shouldn't take more than a few minutes even for really large drives.
A lot of files make their way on your hard drive from installed applications and browsers and while not needed, they take up space. Uniblue MaxiDisk offers you a tool that can help you empty the recycle bin and remove Windows temporary files as well as temporary Internet files. In case you need or want to keep files from either of the three categories mentioned, you can do so by deselecting them from the scan summary window.
Since the application is meant to be a maintenance utility, you can set it to run at Windows startup and perform a scan. Moreover, you can schedule weekly and monthly scans for your hard drive.
In closing, Uniblue MaxiDisk is a handy and reliable tool if you use it consistently, making sure no more useless files pile up in your hard drive from your Internet browser or uninstalled applications.
