Disk Clean Utility for Linux

Post by DAMIEN1307 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 5:32 pm

About one of the only things i think that windows ever got right was its very simplistic Disk Clean utility that its used for 20 years now...they are finally getting rid of it...dont know why as windows continues to become more bloated and is probably in more need of it then ever before because of this...this device does not need to be anything more than just basic good common sense clean ups that most of us are already doing through the CLI...clean up thumbnails, autoclean, autoremove, maybe even remove old kernels except last 2 maybe as an option to tic, etc...just to have it as a "one click wonder" very basic, very simple utility...this just might stop newbies in particular that go running after stupid crap like bleachbit, janitor etc, and for those that are pineing away for not having ccleaner etc...just a thought...DAMIEN

+1 . . and for each choice, a nice detailed pop-up tooltip to explain exactly what will happen if you choose to tick this checkbox.

Amen!!!

just happened to think, I have UnLockMe installed.

it can do a lot of that... I have used it to remind me of things that I need to look at, with a fresh install.
