Deletor helps you reduce the clutter in your disks and other storage media by deleting files and folders matching your criteria. The program can search multiple root folders and delete files according to their size, time properties, attributes, name and name patterns including wildcards. A shredding feature is also available to destroy sensitive documents and make them virtually impossible to recover.
Deletor supports filter packs to help you organize commonly used deletion specifications and quickly recall them by name. A log feature is
also included to report operation progress and details in a window or a
file. You can also preview
operations to verify your settings and collect data such as the number of
deleted files and the amount of recovered disk space.
In addition to the graphical user interface, a command line interface is also available to easily automate cleaning tasks by running Deletor in the foreground or background using batch files, shortcuts, scripts and schedulers.
