Clean Drive will scan your Google Drive account and display your files in categories. This makes it easy to view only the PDF files, doc files, XLS files, etc in your account. Initially your account will show the files in the following categories:

  • Documents (doc, docx, etc)
  • Photos & Images (jpg, png, gif, etc)
  • Audio (mp3, mpeg, ogg, mp4, wav, etc)
  • Video (mp4, flv, mpeg, quicktime, etc)
  • Archive (zip, tar, gzip, etc)

When you view your Google Drive files in these categories you can then drill down to specific files types such as:

  • PDF
  • HTML
  • Microsoft Word
  • XML
  • Javascript
  • Powerpoint
  • CSV
  • Markdown
  • JSON
  • Rich Text
  • Google Documents
  • Google Sheets
  • JPG, PNG, GIf, TIFF, Photoshop, bitmap images
  • MPEG-4 Video
  • QuickTime
  • Flash Video
  • MP3, WAV, MIDI Audio

This is just the start. Clean Drive supports practically every file type that exists.
