Scan, Backup And Delete Orphan DLL Files

30 Ago/09

microsoft windowsThe Windows installation directory is increasing in size over time. One of the main reasons for this behavior are dll files that get installed with software programs. Some of these software programs do not offer a clean uninstall that removes the dll files from the Windows directory during the removal of the application. Another reason are so called shared dlls. You might have experienced uninstallation procedures where a dialog was displayed asking the user if a certain dll file should be removed from the system. Many users click on No just to be on the safe side.

DLL Archive has been designed to scan and backup a computer system for orphan dll files. The program will identify all dll files and then verify if these files are references by files that load dll files. Orphan dlls are not references by any of these files.

It is then possible to add all of the orphan dll files or only selected ones to an archive that functions as a backup in case false positives are found in that list. The developer of the software program suggests to backup the dlls and work with the computer system for a couple of days the least before deleting the archive to ensure that the backup contains indeed only orphan dll files.

DLL Archive is compatible with every version of the Windows operating system including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. It can be downloaded from the developer’s website.
