  1. Some people don’t know what to do to waste their time: the very concept of this application is fundamentally stupid. There is not one advantage to deleta orphaned and/or duplicate dll files. Besides recovering 0.00000000001% of disk space.
    Gosh, in 2010 this craps remains? I mean, think at the concept before coding, an application is not a candy-bar :)
    At least, it’s freeware! Seriously, I’ve seen worse that yhis garbage proposed as shareware, I mean it :)

    • I recovered about 400MB of space by deleting duplicate DLLs and replacing them with symbolic links to the single original file. I use a 100GB hard drive, and every bit of space helps. In total, I’ve saved about 10GB of space by deleting random duplicate files and the windows update cache.
