DrivePurge is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping users enhance their computer performance by carrying out several cleaning operations related to old and invalid registry entries, backup and temporary files, as well as Internet and user tracking data.
It boasts a straightforward interface that allows you to perform most operations with minimum effort.
DrivePurge features three built-in scanning modes which look for invalid registry entries present on your system, backup and temporary files, as well as Internet tracks.
During our testing we have noticed that the tool needs up to several minutes to scan your system but this pretty much depends on the size of the files on your disk. It stresses up the CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.
The program lets you delete registry entries related to DRM cache, downloaded installations, error reports, cache stored by media player, Prefetch items, memory dumps, log items, temporary items, offline web pages, as well as the cache, log files, crash reports, or other unnecessary data stored by different utilities installed on your system.
What’s more, you can accomplish drive cleaning operation by wiping out backup items (BAK, OLD), Microsoft Word auto-backup documents (WBK), Microsoft Excel backup files (XLK), error items, and temporary files.
Last but not least, you can clean data stored by Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer (e.g. recent documents, history), as well as check the report panel for detailed information about the entire operations and possible errors.
On the downside, the tool doesn’t offer support for a built-in backup mode, and this proves to be essential especially when deleting registry entries. However, the program is able to show a warning message before deleting data and send the files to the Recycle Bin.
All things considered, DrivePurge provides a handy set of cleaning tools and an intuitive layout for helping you boost the overall system performance.
