Editorial review


Francisco Martínez Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.0
Temp File Cleaner is a straightforward free tool that will wipe away all the temporary files stored in your drives. It focuses on your Internet temporary files, the Windows update cache and Windows temporary directories, your user’s temporary files, as well as your cookies, recent files, and history.
Thus, it not only frees up valuable disk space for you, but also safeguards your privacy.

The program does what it says it does in a simple and efficient way. Its simple interface is intuitive and easy for anyone to move around. The only choice you need to make refers to the type of temporary files you want to get rid of. Once the different groups have been selected, Temp File Cleaner will jump into the cleaning process without further ado. Note that the program will delete all the files you selected without marking them first, or asking for any confirmation, so you are advised to think carefully which temporary files you want to get rid of before clicking on the “Clean” button.

It comes in a ZIP file that requires no installation, making it a neat portable and compact tool that you can easily carry with you and execute in your laptop or any other computer.

Publisher's description

Temp File Cleaner (TFC for short) is a Windows application designed to rid your PC of the temporary files that accumulate on your hard drive because other applications leave them behind. If left unchecked, these temp files can have many unwanted consequences. You may find that your hard drive is running out of precious free space, or that the operating system and other applications run much slower than you remember.

Temp files also pose as an unseen threat where potentially sensitive information lies, waiting for a hacker to take advantage of them.
