1.9.17 (See all)

DiskKeeper is designed to help you optimize the performance of your computer so that you can benefit from a healthy and fast-processing operating system. The application works as a disk cleaner, app uninstaller, large file remover, and mass file renamer.

The program's functions are structured into clearly-defined modules that you can easily switch between. All features are conveniently displayed on the main window so that you can enable them with ease. When first launching the utility, you need to set the Home and the Apps folders as default computer locations, which the program will then scan. As a disk cleaner, the tool offers to remove useless files, like junks, logs, caches, mail downloads, etc., in order to boost your system performance and regain valuable disk space. Before enabling the cleaning operation, you are informed about the amount of space that will be freed up if the cleanup is performed.

The utility also works as an easy-to-use app uninstaller. What is great about this tool is that the unwanted apps are deleted completely, including their leftovers. If you want to regain a great amount of disk space in a shorter amount of time, you can make use of the “Large file” removing feature. All you need to do is select the minimum file size to search for and ask the program to remove all items above it. Another good function provided by the app refers to changing the name of multiple files based on custom renaming rules. Therefore, you can rename easily all the files that contain, start or end with a specific character; add prefixes or suffixes to multiple files at once, or rename files completely by replacing specific words with new characters.

To conclude, DiskKeeper offers to boost your system performance by cleaning up junk files, uninstall apps you don't use anymore, and delete large files to regain the disk space you are in need of faster. In addition, it helps you rename large collections of files so that you can manage them more easily.
