@webfork,
I dont see a forum link for this post, I also sent the author a report, testing this version (1.97) he still didnt fix it.
I agree that NirSoft utilities are a must have, i myself use few.
From my own experience, the author is lazy when it comes to feedback.

Anyway, to produce the bug...
-Drop a large file and sop the process before its complete, lets say at 2%
-Drop a small file and it will scan old file first.
Most likely he doesn't empty a variable when you break/stop the operation. Should be an easy fix.

@Ganamyde: Point taken. Thanks for the breakdown.

Faust, Daniel Feenberg is (according to LinkedIn) currently an IT Director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, so Wikipedia's label of "economist" appears to be a mistake. Also reference the 2006 NIST Special Publication.... so which computer scientists claim any data can be recovered after one pass? Also, I thought it was generous to write that each cleaner probably finds things the other doesn't and that CCleaner is older and more mature. CCleaner is not a bad tool and certainly does many things well.

Used this to clean up more than 6 gigs of information off a reasonably old Win 7 x64 machine recently. I don't know that it had a major impact on speed, but certainly like that extra 6 gigs. Love this program.

BleachBit is a nice tool for freeing disk space on Windows and Linux systems. BleachBit also helps to preserve privacy; in this time of privacy concerns, it might be something you want to check out. It's even caught the attention of computer security Technologist Bruce Schneier in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-how-to-remain-secure-surveillance) and in Wired (http://www.wired.com/opinion/2013/10/149481/).

Not true, it can scan directories. The option is right there on the startup menu.

Mike.S.G. on 2011-05-20 06:43

@Gmacri

Select the 'Path' to scan if you don't want a whole drive.

mrpink on 2012-01-29 21:08

I think i'll keep this one. WinDirStat is prettier but Spacesniffer is way faster and natively portable

Morning folk, must say I agree with RedTed, I have just downloaded and unzipped the app. I am now the proud owner of a German app. Have tried to change the language, but it's a no go. I am running a 64bit Dell Inspiron, could be that it's only meant for 32bit systems???

PhraseExpress normally auto-adapts to the language set in the regional settings of Microsoft Windows.

Here is a step-by-step procedure how to set PhraseExpress to English language:

This also disables the automatic language detection. Hope, this helps.
