[Steam] Steam Cleaner - A free tool that cleans out unused data left behind by Steam/Origin/Uplay/GOG/Battle.net

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 


Steam Cleaner is a free tool that will remove large amounts of data left behind by Steam, Origin, Uplay and GOG.

There is no installation or configuration needed, it can clear up gigabytes of data such as unused user profile files, leftover game files, old logs, etc. while keeping your game files and other important files untouched.

Check out the Steam Greenlight page - the developer said it will be released on Steam for free

You can download the latest verison here

most common example is when you install a game on steam, each game likes to install its own copy of directX and visual studio for the installation process. It doesnt delete the files for each game after you install them, and are not vital for running the game after the game itself is installed.

This always irritates me. I already have the damn files, stop installing them all the time. sozo.gif

Couldnt Steam just make script to see if they files are there so it could skip the install?

So the only difference between this and Tikione Steam Cleaner is that it also does Uplay and Origin.

Thought Valve released this utility, where I was going to ask "why didn't Valve build this into steam already?". Either way, it is a great creation!

I only got 142mb back if you have all the redistribute installed before hand steam won't download it and if you play a lot of games they are more or less the same. Anyway very useful tool.

No, DX gets updates almost once a month (ish) and each game uses a different build, thats why they are often packaged with specific distributions.
