Hard Disks and File Systems HDValet Regshot Lab


Next we introduce you to HDValet.  This is basically a junk file cleaning tool.  What this tool does is clean up the junk files like temp and backup files.  You’ll see a demonstration of a user cleaning their files and then a run of Regshot to see if that junk file cleaning impacted the registry in any way.

HDValet creates a log file.  You’ll learn about the info it provides such as storage capacity savings, details about the files it finds and deleted including where they were located, file types and other information for example junk files that could not be removed to the recycle bin.

And finally, you’ll see how a registry is or is not modified following a registry cleaning, what registry components if any were affected, and how.
