Thread: Keeping a clean system

  1. #1

    Default Keeping a clean system

    Hello guys!

    Is there any way to keep your system clean of old unused files, old keys, temporary files of kde, firefox etc.?

    The last time my "/"drive got pretty full because of some applications I couldn't make out.
    Since I formatted all my drives and put the suse11.1 with kde4.1 on it, I'd like a way to prevent that from happening again!

    I would really appreciate some useful input, thanks!

    I'm using BleachBit for a while now. Cleans lots of things like caches, temp files etc...
    Maybe it's not what you'll expect from it, but you should give it a try!

    Hey Kenny!
    This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for

    Thank you so much, Denny.

    you won't like this probably but, here goes anyway:

    1. to keep out the unwanted stuff, don't install everything that comes
    along that sounds neat....i mean, think about what you _need_ and
    install that stuff. only... neat is only neat if you need/use it,
    otherwise in some days, weeks, months it just becomes "old unused files"

    alternative:

    2. disk space is really inexpensive--BUY MORE, then whatever you do
    install, just leave it even if you don't like it..(because removing
    programs is *always* harder than adding--which is why i _try_ to
    follow #1, above) and an abandoned file on a half empty hard disk is
    nothing to worry about...there is no sense in applying the Puritan
    idea of "clean" to this situation..

    ymmv--if you don't like my thoughts on it, ignore them..

    but, brush your teeth anyway! ;-)
