Scanner is a utility program for Windows users.

This program is an oldie, but it has been around awhile for a reason. Many people use it as a Windows utility to analyze disk space and system health. While it hasn't received a lot of downloads since its introduction over a decade ago, it remains a hidden gem among Windows utilities. You're not going to find many professional features in this program, but you're going to get a basic disk scan and an idea of the overall health of your disks.

The name Scanner is appropriate because that's exactly what this program does. It scans your disks and gives you an idea of how you're doing on disk space, corrupt disk space and additional information about your disks. This program hasn't been updated since 2009, which is a very, very long time ago, so don't expect much modernity about this one. You'll get a basic disk scan and that's about it, as all of the the updated features that have come with newer models of computers will not be included in this specific disk scan. However, if you have an older computer Scanner can come in handy.

You'll also appreciate that this program doesn't take up much disk space itself. You'll get a basic program that can defragment disks and analyze them without bogging down your computer's resources. In the end, it can be a helpful utility for older models of computers.

Pros

  • Very lightweight software that won't hog computer resources
  • Effectively scans, analyzes and improves disks
  • Great to get a general idea for overall disk space and health

Cons

  • Hasn't been updated since 2009
  • Nothing professional or special about this one, not much depth to it
