CleanEx: Easily cleans programmer's directories

CleanEx rolling demo

Planet Paul presents CleanEx, a handy shell extension for cleaning junk files from folder hierarchies - particularly useful for programmers wanting to clear out compiler intermediates. Great for any situation where you often need to clear out a folder, but don't want to be hunting around for a cleanup app. If you can see the folder, you can clean it instantly......

How does it work?

The rolling demo shows just how easy it is to use. CleanEx adds an entry to the right-click menu for drives and folders. Simply right cick a folder and select 'Clean' and up pops the CleanEx dialog....

Customisation

CleanEx comes ready configured with a number of file groups that programmers often need to clean up. These groups can be customised and new groups created - simply click the '>>>' button...

Install/Uninstall

CleanEx comes with a full installer and uninstaller. Simply download cleanex.zip and run the setup.exe contained within it (if you use WinZip, simply hit the Install' button!).

    Hi,
    Would it be possible to process many directories at once?

    Good tool, but it lacks the option to delete directories once they are empty. For example, if the "Debug" directory has all its files deleted (with the tool), it ought to be deleted too.
