Alternate Directory Description

After using a computer for an extended time period, it is difficult to avoid cluttering it with all sorts of unnecessary files that take up large amounts of free space.

Alternate Directory is a simple application, designed to scan your computer for certain file types, generate reports and delete nonessential data.

Scan entire drives or specific folders

If you want to analyze all your storage devices, you can have the application perform a comprehensive scan, searching for unnecessary files through all drives and partitions.

However, you can also select a particular directory and specify which subfolders should not be included in the scanning operation.

Once a diagnosis has been performed, the application generates a series of pie charts that display the amount of free space to be gained from deleting files matching the scanning criteria.

Choose which file types should be deleted

Alternate Directory offers multiple built-in profiles that allow you to specify which file formats the application should search for. If you need to free up large amounts of free space, you can choose a more advanced profile, but you may end up losing important files.

You can also manually specify which file types should be included and save your settings, so they can be used again at a later date.

Additionally, you can choose to completely erase the contents of certain folders, have the application ignore write-protection and include zero byte files.

Export or print results

The application generates a list of all the files that match the searching criteria. This log can be viewed within the application, saved to a CSV file or printed.

To conclude, if you are looking for a straightforward tool that can help you free up valuable space on your computer, by deleting unnecessary files of various formats, you should try Alternate Directory. It is easy-to-use and features a minimalistic, if slightly outdated interface.
