Hidden Files

These are the files that are potentially hidden in your system. In most cases, these hidden files become giant and take up the system’s storage. But, it is important to know how to track them. Whether these files are big in size or not, you can definitely be able to track them with ease. With Every File Tool (EFT), you can track them in a couple of secs. Here’s how.

Step 1: Click on File Cleaner, then click “Hidden Files”.

Step 2: Click Add to add a folder(s). You can also select the whole drive. In this case, we add the desktop to see if there are any hidden files.
