Free up valuable hard drive space with the capable cleanup tool

KCleaner is a powerful tool that will help to uncover redundant and junk files that you can safely delete.

The program has a good understanding of the kinds of clutter that will be left all over your hard drive by assorted applications. So aside from the usual Windows and browser temporary files, KCleaner can clear caches relating to Java, ATI Drivers, Skype, Google Earth, QuickTime, Adobe Reader and many more.

And while this won't necessarily free up a huge amount of space, it does mean that KCleaner's results compare will with the competition. We tried CCleaner on a trial PC, and it found 2.4GB of redundant files, for instance; KCleaner uncovered 2.73GB.

The program is also very configurable. You're able to choose precisely which types of files it should delete, and there are options to scramble file names before deletion, and securely wipe them so they can't be recovered later.

And once KCleaner is set up as you'd like, it can be left to run in the background, automatically cleaning up redundant files on a regular basis.

Please note, KCleaner will by default try to install toolbars and other "extras". If you don't want this, pay very close attention during the setup process, and decline the various installations as they appear.

What's new in 3.1.2.78 (see changelog for more)?

- [Bug] Error on checklicence URL (error 404, PHP crash,...) leads to valid licence check (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.
- 0003870: [Refactoring] Upgrade of internal JEDI Libraries JCL v2.7 -> v2.8 (6000) JVCL v3.49 -> v3.50 (2016-08-04) (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.
- 0003891: [Refactoring] Encrypted "last licence check" (Kyle_Katarn) - resolved.

Verdict:

KCleaner does a good job of recovering valuable free hard drive real estate, while taking minimal risks with your system - it's most unlikely to delete anything important

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
