CCleaner Alternatives

    One of the most well known hard drive cleaning utilities out there, CCleaner has earned its reputation from being free and easy to operate, with clear indications of what's being deleted and how much free space your hard drive is set to gain from the process.

    A highly recommended Windows and Linux alternative to CCleaner by our community can be found in Small BleachBit iconBleachBit, which is also open source and purported to be more thorough. Of course, there are many other alternatives for Windows, Linux, and macOS, as well as available on the App Store and Google Play Store.
