Recently a customer installed WinPatrol Enterprise because many of their workstations were running very low on available hard drive space and they thought maybe the workstations were infected with bots or something.
They were very happy to discover their workstations were not infected, but shocked at what they did find. Back in January 2015, these users participated in a web conference call that used GoToMeeting. No big deal, the end-users installed the software, had the meeting and moved on.
Now, about 21 months later the administrator discovered the GoToMeeting folder
contained 49 sub-
folders, one for each upgrade automatically downloaded for GoToMeeting over the last 21 months, amounting to over 2.4 GB of
used disk space.
Program Inventory to the rescue. By deleting these leftover folders the administrators were able to recover over 2 GB of wasted disk space on each of the workstations.
True 2 GB isn't a huge amount of space in today's computer world, but this was only the worst of many programs that leave around previous versions in version specific folders. If you have a few of these offending applications the space they take adds up.
WinAntiRansom also contains the Program Inventory features that can help you keep your system free from unwanted or wasteful programs.
