The Mop is a program designed to remove unnecessary data from the computer and supplies you with several methods to do so. It can be handled by users of any level of experience.
The tool is wrapped in a clean interface with an intuitive layout. So, you can select the disk scan type between express (fast scan), regular (finds the majority of junk files and folders) and thorough (deep analysis).
The Mop allows you to pick one or more volume drives to submit for analysis, as well as to add folders to an exception list.
Once the scanning procedure finishes, you can opt for sending the junk files to the Recycle Bin or for permanently removing them from the computer. Alternatively, you can delete data beyond recovery, by using special software.
However, before doing so, it is possible to view a list of all found items which are considered "junk" by The Mop, in order to create an exclusion list. This can be done after carefully studying file names and sizes, occupied space on the disk, last data of modification, and reason. The final step of the program reveals results.
A few customization options are available. For example, you can make The Mop automatically run at system startup and to perform cleaning automatically, disable the sound notification, configure proxy settings, as well as switch to a different language for the GUI.
The application needs a moderate amount of CPU and system memory, has a good response time, and takes reasonable time to complete a scan and clean job. We have not encountered any issues throughout our testing, since The Mop did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs. The bottom line is that The Mop is a very good program for removing junk files from your computer.
