This facility improves the performance of the endpoints by defragmentation and by cleaning unwanted and junk files and invalid and obsolete registry entries. While you work in applications, computers write junks on the drives or when you visit any Websites, the temporary files are created on your computer. Such junks and files occupy spaces in the memory resulting in slowing down of the endpoints. Tuning up your computers cleans up these files by improving their performance.
Tuneup settings allow you to carry out different types of clean-ups such as; disks, registry entries, or schedule a defragmentation at next boot.
Disk Cleanup: Helps you find and remove invalid and unwanted junk files from the hard disk. These files consume hard disk space and slow down the system considerably. Disk Cleanup deletes these files and provide free space that can be used for other applications and helps in improving system performance. This feature also deletes temporary files, Internet cache files, improper shortcut files, garbage name files, and empty folders.
Registry Cleanup: Helps you remove invalid and obsolete registry entries from the system, such entries may appear due to improper uninstallation, non-existent fonts, etc. Sometimes during uninstallation, the registry entries are not deleted. This leads to slower performance of the system. The Registry Cleanup removes such invalid registry entries to increase the performance of the system.
Defragment: Helps you defragment vital files, such as page files and registry hives for improving the performance of the endpoint. Files are often stored in fragments in different locations slowing down the system performance. Defragmentation reduces the number of fragments and clubs all the fragments into one contiguous chunk to improve your endpoint performance.
The Tuneup feature is available only in the clients with Windows Desktop operating systems.
The Tuneup feature is not available for Windows Server operating system.
