Diranalyze Disk

What is Diranalyze Disk?

Diranalyze Disk is an application promoted as a useful PC optimization tool. It performs a system scan and searches for duplicate files so that users could remove them and free up some disk space. Also, it shows how much space certain folders are using. Some users find this application quite useful while others cannot even explain why they have Diranalyze Disk installed on their computers. We would recommend deleting this application from the system even if you belong to the first group of users because this program is a potentially unwanted application and definitely not trustworthy software. It does not act as a malicious application, we can assure, but we cannot tell you that it is a fully reliable application either. Specifically speaking, it performs certain activities that make it an untrustworthy program. For instance, it creates several scheduled tasks after the successful infiltration. We will list all the activities typical for a potentially unwanted application it performs on users’ PCs in the next paragraph, so you should continue reading if you still cannot decide whether you should keep it or remove it.testtesttest

What does Diranalyze Disk do?

There is no doubt that Diranalyze Disk has already been installed on your computer if you can find the DiskCleaner folder in %PUBLIC% and SDisk Finder in %PROGRAMFILES% (or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%). Of course, these are not the only signs showing that this potentially unwanted application is active and working on your PC. After the successful entrance, Diranalyze Disk also creates several scheduled tasks: %WINDIR%\Tasks\DirAnalyzer, %WINDIR%\System32\Tasks\SDisk Finder, and %WINDIR%\Tasks\Test Task.job. These tasks enable it to perform certain activities periodically. It is not very easy to say why it creates those tasks, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com say. According to researchers, it, most probably, creates them so that it could transmit certain information to a remote server located in Russia. This data is encrypted, so it is unclear what it sends there. Theoretically, it might even collect some details about users. It is surely a suspicious activity, so you should not let it continue doing this. As you can see, Diranalyze Disk has been classified as a potentially unwanted program not without reason. If you do not remove it today, it will continue performing activities on your computer even if you click X and close it, thanks to these scheduled tasks it creates upon installation.

Where does Diranalyze Disk come from?

We could not find an official website of Diranalyze Disk, and the link (Scanfolder.space) this application contains opens a page of a different program. Therefore, our specialists suspect that this potentially unwanted program mainly travels bundled with third-party software. Also, it might be possible to download it from an untrustworthy third-party page, usually a file-sharing website. You should not keep Diranalyze Disk active on your computer no matter how it has entered your system because it is a) not as useful as it claims to be and b) it might perform undesirable activities, i.e. send information from your PC to a third-party Russian website. We cannot promise that the removal of this potentially unwanted application will be easy because it not only creates three tasks and several new folders, but also makes modifications in the system registry. Other malicious applications might apply changes after slithering onto your computer too in the near future, but you can prevent this from happening rather easily – all you need to do is to enable a security application on your computer.
