Today On Reddit: Easily Clean DirectX Redistributable Packages Steam Leaves On Your PC

It’s been a while since we did these, but we figured some of you fellow PC gaming adepts would enjoy a way for Steam to stop being annoying with lost install files. You know the ones; DirectX and all that mess that just clogs up your perfectly clean gaming rig.

Today on Reddit, what started as a mere jab at the silly way Steam works, turned out to be a boon. Thanks to user evnalmightyyy, the thread in r/gaming became less of a simple pun and more of a helpful tool. They notified people of a program that can take care of all needless files Steam leaves behind.

It’s called TikiOne-Steam-Cleaner and comes as a free download. After installing, it finds your Steam folder, locates redistributable packages and then gives you an option to look at each one and destroy those things permanently.

We tried it and it restored around 4Gb of space. Not too shabby if you’re hurting for room on your SSD. Other users also reported big chunks of data recovered, up to 22Gb even, so give it a try.

The free download for the program that rids you of all unwanted DirectX redistributable packages can be found here.

  1. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
    problems? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in
    Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix
    this problem?
