Spring Cleaning 3.5 Adds iClean

Send Article to a Friend

Spring Cleaning 3.5 Adds iClean -- Aladdin Systems has released Spring Cleaning 3.5, the latest version of the company's utility for cleaning up your hard disk. Along with features for removing duplicate files, fixing broken aliases, eliminating empty folders, and deleting unnecessary files related to uninstalled applications, Spring Cleaning now adds iClean, which saves disk space and protects privacy by deleting browser caches, Internet history files, and cookies. Although Spring Cleaning doesn't do much that you couldn't do by hand or with a variety of other utilities, it automates and simplifies the process of finding and deleting all the unnecessary files. Spring Cleaning 3.5 costs $50, but upgrades are $20 for owners of previous versions or any other Aladdin product (recent purchasers of Spring Cleaning 3.0 can upgrade for $7.50 shipping & handling).
