Free Revit Journal Cleaner updated for 2015

To use, basically:
  1. Download from link below
  2. Install
  3. Pick the retention time
  4. Click Clean all file types (you will be shown how much space was saved)
  5. or/ click Toggle Calc mode to clean individual file types
  6.  You can also click Open Journal Folders to see all versions of Journal folders on your PC
(As you can see there is  also an unrelated angle calc tool. I usually use this family.)

From Dante van Wettum, via email:
Also this year again i have updated the Revit journal cleaner again to support 2015. Also i added a few new features to the tool that might help others. Though i wrote the tool in first instance for personal use, i will share it again as the passed few years :)

EDIT fixed download link here:

Download via: http://www.aqua-page.nl/dls/dls/download.php?fname=./other/RevitJournalCleaner_2015.zip

Here the changelog:
Revit Journal Cleaner
Copyright (C) 2014 D. van Wettum.
- Added support for revit 2015
- Added commandline parameter "/CleanAll:<number_Of_Days>" Example:"C:\...\RevitJournalCleaner.exe /CleanAll:1"
- Added a small angle calculation tool that has completely nothing to do with cleaning journal files, though i found it to be a nice add-on for my own use :)
Kind Regards
