BleachBit deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain privacy, and remove junk. It removes cache, Internet history, temporary files, cookies, and broken shortcuts.

Some common uses include:

  • Free disk space
  • Reduce the size of backups and the time to create them by removing unnecessary files
  • Maintain privacy
  • Improve system performance (by vacuuming your browser's database, for example)
  • Prepare whole disk images for compression (common for "ghost" backups and virtual machines) by wiping free disk space
