What People are Saying


I remove tax files that are older than 3 years and Clean Drive made this easy. I just selected the folder and had it remove everything older than 3 years. Thanks for saving me time finding the files to remove!

Up until now I've been storing everything in Google Drive. I could safely remove files that were between 5 to 10 years old and free up a lot of wasted space.

I had old PDF & Doc files from a project I worked on years ago. I used Clean Drive to quickly find and remove all of these old project files.
