Cyber-D's Autodelete is a simple-to-use yet powerful program which allows you to schedule automatic file deletions, based on a set of user-defined filters. It can be seamlessly figured out, even by first-time users.
The interface of the application is clean and eye-catching. So, you can get started by specifying a folder whose files you want to erase on a frequent basis, by using the folder view ('drag and drop' is not supported). Evidently, processing multiple items at the same time is permitted.
It is possible to create name filters based on files or folders, as well as date filters (e.g. delete files older than 1 year, 2 days, 3 hours and 4 minutes), whether you are referring to the date of creation, last modification or last access.
Furthermore, you can make Cyber-D's Autodelete send the files to the Recycle Bin, prepare them for secure deletion, or move them to a different location, once the deletion procedure is triggered. Regarding the file removal method, you can either create an inclusion or exclusion list, depending on the quantity of items you want to delete or protect. Plus, you may include subfolders in the task, enable logging and debugging modes, as well as set the app to automatically run at system startup.
The program needs a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory, is pretty responsive to keyboard and mouse events, finishes a task in no time, and contains user documentation. We have not gone through any trouble during our evaluation, since Cyber-D's Autodelete did not freeze, crash or pop up error notifications. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, less experienced users should be able to quickly figure out the app's features.
