CleanEx – a blast from the past

I had an email recently enquiring about a freeware Windows application I wrote nine years ago called CleanEx. I was amazed people still use it, even more amazed it still works. Nine years is a long time!

CleanEx is a little shell extension to clean a directory of temporary files, originally conceived as a way to get rid of C++ compiler intermediate files. Here’s a rolling demo of it in action


CleanEx can be customised to add your own file groups too. I must have the sources around here somewhere, I’ll open it up if anyone is interested.
