Secure deletion of files, hard drives and SSDs in such a way that they can no longer be reconstructed even with special data recovery software. SSDs work completely differently than classic magnetic hard drives. As part of what is known as 'wear leveling', SSD controllers ensure that data is evenly distributed across the blocks of the flash memory in order to increase the service life of the SSD. Neither the users nor programs can determine which parts of the SSD are written to. As a result, traditional multiple overwriting is no guarantee of secure data erasure on SSDs. Not only can you never be sure whether the occupied data blocks were really caught when they were overwritten, but frequent writing also shortens the service life of the SSD. HDCleaner developed an algorithm that deletes the allocation table of the SSD and all written blocks within seconds. This resets the SSD to the factory state. This is especially worthwhile if you are selling the SSD and want to be 100% sure that no data can be recovered.
Overwrite Free Disk Space (Master File Table Records) - When you delete a file on Windows, it is not actually destroyed. Windows just hides the file and frees up space for overwriting. The files can therefore be restored with special recovery programs. However, HDCleaner can overwrite this free space and thus make it impossible to restore the deleted files on your hard drive.
Forensic cleaning (USN Journal, Cluster tips, MFT, free space, remove residual traces of old deleted files) after Plugin Cleaning in advanced mode.
Prevent unnecessary programs from starting when the computer boots up. When you start your computer, Windows isn't the only program that loads. All of these automatically opening programs consume system memory, and can drag down performance. Fortunately, managing startup programs isn't difficult with HDCleaner.
Uninstall programs you don’t use, they are slowing down your computer. This will free up space and save resources. All related files, settings, and register entries are also removed.
Registry contains all the information about your personal computer settings, software and hardware. Wrong file paths, corrupted entries and other kinds of erroneous slows down your computer. Registry Cleaner searches for and fixes various registry problems like invalid shortcuts, wrong paths, corrupted ActiveX and COM entries, CLSID values, explorer extensions, BHOs (Browser Helper Objects) and other kinds of erroneous and obsolete data.
If the registry is messed up with, it can lead to system errors and worse still, render your system unusable forcing you to perform a clean install. For this reason, it is crucial to always have a healthy backup of the registry so that should something go awry, you can always restore your system from the backup. HDCleaner helps you backup and restore the registry.
Scan the Registry and find the desired Registry values that match to the specified search criteria, and display them in one list. After finding the Registry values, you can easily jump to the right value in RegEdit by double-clicking the desired Registry item. You can also export or delete the found Registry keys and values.
Defragment Registry- Analyze and optimize the registry database. It scans and optimizes Windows registry by removing gaps and wasted space, thereby helping to improve computer speed.

DirToHTML is a directory to HTML index converter which builds a html index file out of directory structures and files on your computer. The file list can include subfolders, just a single folder or even whole drives.
DiskDoctor checks the file system and file system metadata of a volume for logical and physical errors.
Creating and Editing System Restore Points - Restore points are created to allow users a choice of previous system states. Each restore point contains the necessary information needed to restore the system to the chosen state. Restore points are created before key changes are made to the system.
