People who own both a Windows and Macintosh computer or who have to transfer data from one OS to another on a daily basis, know that many DOT files keep appearing on the hard drive. DOT Delete is a software application which was developed specifically to aid you with this problem, by identifying all DOT items and deleting them, with a minimal amount of effort.
You are required to go through a pretty seamless setup process, as no unpleasant surprises await you during it. After you finalize it, you are brought to pretty simple and clean interface, as it only consists of a menu bar, and a pane in which to view all detected items.
It becomes clear that all types of users, including those less experienced, can find their way around it without encountering any kind of issues, even in the absence of Help contents.
Options you can tweak and method of use
First and foremost, you should know that in order to start the scan, you are required to drop a folder to the main window, in the appropriately-labeled region. All detected DOT files are going to be listed in a panel along with name and status.
It is possible to select the ones you want to discard, and simply click the “Delete All” button in order to start this process. A progress bar lets you approximate the time until this operation is going to be done. You can undo actions, as well as cut, copy, paste and clear items.
To conclude, DOT Delete is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to removing DOT files from your hard drive with ease. The interface is intuitive, the response time is good and it does not put a strain on the computer’s performance. We did not detect any errors, crashes or freezes in our tests, yet we also have to take into account that it has not been updated in a while.
