Clean tempory files

The ability to remove temporary files would be nice to see with soluto as they can build up and being in a hidden folder, less computer literate people don't realize how much space they can free when removing / optimizing their machines.

Yes, a "Disk Cleanup" type option would be great.

What has happened to " Clean Temporary Files"  Jan. 18 2012.  Has it been done? It is now Aug. 26 2012. 7 months later.

Hi Rick, this has already been released. Once the HD passes a certain threshold of MBs that can be deleted (500MB if I remember correctly) and the files are over a week old. Here's an example from my home desktop:

Clicking on Clear Space drills down to show what can be deleted:

This feature request has been marked Done.

If I could add to this:  perhaps add a feature to select certain files that can be cleared, just like the Windows Disk Cleanup.  (Then for simplicity, have them all checked by default, with options to deselect things you don't want cleared.)
