Understanding the NetXClean Utility
NetXClean keeps extraneous information from being stored in flash memory. NetXClean clean-up is
triggered by either a service startup or a user log-off. It runs in the background and performs the clean-
up invisibly and no user input is necessary.
NetXClean prevents garbage files from building up and filling the free space in the flash for example, if a
flush of some files in the File Based Write Filter cache puts junk in flash directories that must be kept
clean. The NetXClean utility is particularly important when multiple users have log-on rights to a thin
client, as memory space can be quickly used by locally stored profiles and temporary caching of
NetXClean TweakUI functions includes clearing:
• Run history at log-on
• Document history at log-on
• Find Files history at log-on
• Find Computer history at log-on
• Internet Explorer history at log-on
• Selected Items Now
• Last User at log-on
NetXClean purges selected directories, files, and profiles. It uses a configuration file to determine which
directories and files to purge and what not to purge. To select different directories and files to purge, you
must select them in the configuration file.
NOTE: NetXClean purge selections are made by the manufacturer and should not be changed
without manufacturer supervision.
