KleanSweep allows you to reclaim disk space by finding unneeded files. KleanSweep can search for files basing on several criterias.

You can seek for:

empty files
backup files
broken symbolic links
dead menu entries (.desktop files pointing to non-existing executables)
duplicated files
orphaned files (files not found in RPM database)
obsolete thumbnails (thumbnails conforming to freedesktop.org standard, pointing to non-existing images

Planned features:

seeking for orphaned files in Debian and Gentoo (portage) databases
seeking for empty directories
seeking for unused locales
options for setting include/exclude paths, file extensions etc.
and more!

KleanSweep consists of KDE-based (C++) graphical frontend and small helper Perl script that performs actual searching.

All searches, except for orphaned files, duplicates and dead menu entries are as fast as usual 'find' would be. KleanSweep requires KDE libraries and Perl.

Note: I take no responsibility for any damage caused by this program.

What's New in This Release:
Removed "greedy match" button
added Italian, German, Spanish and Portugaese translations
