Steam Cleaner (Open Source)

Cleans diskspace from temp files steam games produce every time you play.

// Steam Cleaner by icepick66// Version: 2009 V1.6.0 (9 Pack Version)

//What is it?// Its a program to remove all the crap generated by source engine games, it removes obsolete temporary files, and can be set to clean up your entire game directory, with over 17 individual settings it boasts completely customisability over the cleaning of your game.

Even if you just play these games once in a while, you still collect a lot of crap, such as other peoples sprays, sounds, maps, textures, graphs. You'll be surprised how much it adds up to: just playing one round in a 50 slot server will eat 800kb, doesn't sound much, but it all adds up if you play regularly!

Clans also often use this and then defrag before matches to get the completive edge, with cleaner directories, faster load times, and compacted necessary files.
