Q: Is BleachBit “safe”?
A: BleachBit identifies and organizes the files you are most likely want to delete. For a few options which are most likely to cause you regret, it shows a popup warning. In that sense, BleachBit is much safer for a novice computer user than poking through the random directories hunting for files to delete. On the other hand, if the saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” were not true or the saying “one size fits all” applied here, BleachBit would have no options. Carefully read the descriptions and warnings, and do not choose any options you do not understand or which make you uncomfortable.


A safe place to start is deleting all the cache items. They are large, so you will get back much disk space. However, you probably won't regret deleting cache because it can be automatically recreated, if needed.
