Help you free disk space by finding and deleting unnecessary files.

Avira Optimizer to help you free disk space by finding and deleting unnecessary files. In this regard, the app can clean various system areas. For instance, it can remove old downloads, browser junk data and cache files as well as empty your Trash. This tool has a well-organized interface, which is very easy to navigate; so, I doubt anyone can have difficulties to use it.

Avira Optimizer supports three scan modes. In this respect, there is Quick Optimizer, which does a surface scan to find files you may no longer need. Power Cleaner, in turn, performs a profounder scan but takes considerably more time. The third mode is specifically intended for finding large and old files. In every mode, when the scans are done, the tool lets you browse through the results and check only those items you actually want to get rid of.

It is great that, besides the on-demand scans, Avira Optimizer also supports scheduling them. Thus, you can set the app to run automatically when the system starts. Likewise, there is a technology called OnWatch that can permanently monitor for changes and suggest cleaning when it becomes necessary.

All in all, Avira Optimizer has a positive impact on your computer’s performance. Likewise, it preserves your privacy by removing possibly sensitive data. Regrettably, the Power Cleaner mode seems too slow. Moreover, the tool may fail to find some kinds of duplicates. Still, it is excellent that this product is available for free.
