[to all gamers]optimize steam & disk space using tikione steam cleaner![hot]

Discussion in 'Windows Applications (Freeware only)' started by hacksaw24, Feb 10, 2015.

  1. The good old time:

    When you installed a video game from a CD or a DVD, you installed some redistributable packages too: DirectX, Games For Windows Live Redist, VC Redist, Rapture3D, NVidia PhysX Redist, etc. They were installed from the CD/DVD, and those installers didn't stay on your hard drive.

    Now, Steam, the problem:

    The Steam application allows you to download games from the Internet and install them, but what about these redistributable packages ? You probably saw they are installed the first time you launch your game, OK, but what happens to these files when they go wasted ? The answer is very simple: Steam doesn't delete them. An example: install the first complete season of Sam & Max (6 episodes): every episode is about ~300MB. For each of them, you can count 100MB for the DirectX redistributable package. Yes, it is about a third of the game files size, and they are not removed by Steam. For 6 episodes, you could save 600MB. Imagine what you could save for 10 or 20 games.

    The solution:

    A little tool that is able to list every redistributable package stored on your Steam directories, and allows you to remove them. This is the goal of TikiOne-Steam-Cleaner. This is a very simple program: set the Steam SteamApps folder (this is a sub-folder of the Steam application), click "Search", you choose what file or folder you want to remove.


    As TikiOne-Steam-Cleaner is a Java-based program, ensure you have already installed Java (version 7 or better).
    You can download the latest version of Java at Please or Register to view links. Install Java 7 or better.

    *The program is packaged in a ZIP file. Unzip it and double-click to the "tikione-steam-cleaner.bat" file. The program starts.


    Screenshot 1: the main frame

    1. You can auto-detect the Steam directory, or use the "..." button to locate it manually.
    2. Start search.
    3. The program may find many redistributable packages on your Steam sub-directories. Check the files and folders you want do delete.
    4. NB: if you uncheck an item, it will be automatically unchecked the next times; so, you can easily set a list of files and folders you'll never delete.
    5. Ask the program to delete selected items.


    Screenshot 2: you saved space!

    That's all, you can now close the program ;)


    Eto ung ss ko patunay sa working talaga sya. :) 116.54MB nafree up na space nya. :D sa inyo ba??


    Enjoy Guys! ;)
