About this app

Organize your Google Drive files with Clean Drive and reduce your storage usage. This software will find your duplicate files, large files, large folders, hidden files and so much more. It displays your files in an organized way so you can quickly see the files that are cluttering up your Google Drive account.

When you first log in to the Clean Drive app with your Google account the software will scan your files and then present you with a report of how your storage is being used. The software will show your duplicate files, large files, hidden files, large folders, empty folders and let you browse files by specific file types. You can use filters to further drill down to specific files and folders. It can also bulk delete files and folders, making tasks like removing thousands of duplicate files a breeze. Check out the Clean Drive website for more information

After your scan is complete you will be presented with a report of your storage usage. You will see a graph showing your storage usage by Google Drive, Gmail and Google Photos as well as the number of files and folders that exist in your account.

Then you will see your files in specific categories such as:

✔️ Duplicate Files
✔️ Hidden Files
✔️ Empty Files
✔️ Files Larger than X MB
✔️ Files Older than X years
✔️ Files not owned by me
✔️ Temporary Files
✔️ Files by Extension
✔️ Custom Files, where you can view files by custom criteria.
✔️ Google Drive Trash

In each category, you will see the total storage space that your files are consuming and how many files are in the category.

Below the files there is another category for your folders where you will see:

✔️ Folders Larger than X MB
✔️ Empty Folders
✔️ Custom Folders where you can filter folders by custom criteria.

You can also browse your files by specific file types. The file types are first broken down into high-level types such as:

✔️ Documents
✔️ Photos & Images**
✔️ Audio
✔️ Video
✔️ Archive (zip)
✔️ Other

** Please note, you can find and remove photos that exist in Google Drive but Clean Drive does not currently find files in Google Photos.

When you view any one of these categories you will see your files further broken down into categories for specific file types (Microsoft Word, PDF, JPG, Excel, Google Sheets, Powerpoint, etc).

When you view your files or folders in any of the categories listed above you will be presented with information about each file and folder. You can easily clear the clutter from your Google Drive account by selecting specific files or folders. You can also use the bulk delete feature to remove specific files or folders with a simple click.


With the free plan, you can scan up to 1 million files in your Google Drive account and view how your storage is being used. You can see the number of duplicate files, empty folders, large folders and more that are taking up space in your Google Drive account. Then each month, you can delete up to 100 files and folders.

Upgrade to a paid plan that starts for as little as 4 per month (paid annually) to unlock more features. The paid plans have additional features, and you can scan more files, delete more files and view large folders and empty folders.

Install the app above to get started and start using the free plan or you can view the plan comparison by visiting:

Thank you so much. As a web developer, this app is a life saver for reeling in the massive amounts of files spread everywhere across too many clouds. Between Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive, my Chromebook, and my Windows desktop(s), all of them have had some situation where folders (and files) files were duplicated, folders (and files) were empty, and huge files disappeared into unknown places. This app took care of all that and I've tidied up my 800+GB drive (now 300+GB of useful files)

I've re-written this a few times before posting it because I don't know whether to give it two stars or five. I'm going to settle on four because my only real complaint is the pricing model. Pro - I can't find any other app that performs a similar function, and it seems to work well. I haven't paid yet so all I can see are the results, but they mostly look good (I wish it would identify empty folders though). It performs functions Google should have built into it already. I appreciate that it exists. For the price, I wish it worked with more cloud providers. Con - I HATE the pricing model. I hate software that you may only use once or twice, but prices itself in such a way you'll feel like you're overpaying if you pay for just a month, but you'll feel dumb if you pay a year and only use it for a month. I think part of the problem is the scope of the app. You can use it with multiple google drives, which makes the pricing ($10\month, $21\quarter, $48\year) a great value if you have four or five drives to maintain regularly. It makes it a terrible value if you just want to use it once every few months to make sure your drive hasn't gotten out of hand. I'm still going four stars and will likely pay for some amount of service at some point because I like supporting small devs, I think there is value in this tool, and it will save me time. But at $48/year to clean up a couple hundred GB? I could just pay $99 and go get another 2TB cloud storage from another provider. Good software, tough to justify the cost for individual users. I wish I could just pay $20\year and tie it to a single drive to maintain or something. If more cloud services are added, I could see justifying the $48\year.

Listing empty folders is now available Jan. 2022. Given the costs associated with offering this service, I have tried to make Clean Drive as affordable as possible. Also, adding additional storage space to Google Drive does not help clear the clutter and clearing the clutter is where Clean Drive shines.

Be warned!! Great website and app function well. Billing process is whoafuly disappointing. It takes 30 days to cancel. The reasons are clear = $$!! This is just taking advantage of people (or other worse words) for no good reason.
