delete unnecessary files from the system
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
