Download Vacuum for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11 - A free and Open Source app to clean any temporary files over a month old


Vacuum is a free and Open Source app to clean any temporary files over a month old. Vacuum is available on isn't for everyone looking to clean all temporary files, but it might be handy for techs to clean out temporary folders in Windows quickly.


Simply execute Vacuum.exe. It will remove any entries in your temp directory that weren't touched in the last month.

"Entry" is either a file or a directory. Directory counts as "touched" if any of its children was touched in the month period. Vacuum considers the following dates when examining the files (as they're reported by the filesystem):

  • creation date
  • last write date

Main command-line arguments:

  • (-d|--directory) : path to the temporary directory which should be cleaned up. Falls back to Path.GetTempPath by default (which uses certain environment variables to determine the path).
  • (-p|--period) : number of days for entry to be untouched before being deleted by Vacuum. 30 by default.
  • (-s|--space) (|k|m) amount of space to clean up (k = kibibytes, m = mebibytes). In space-cleaning mode, Vacuum will still clean up the oldest items first.
  • (-f|--force): forces Vacuum to delete the entries it wasn't able to recycle.
