    The aim of the thesis is to develop an application for cleaning up the Linux operating system that would be able to function on most distributions. The theoretical part discusses the cleaning of the Linux operating system that frees up disk space and allows a better functioning. The cleaning techniques and the existing tools for Linux are systematically reviewed and presented. The following part examines the cleaning of the Windows and MacOS operating systems. The thesis also compares all three operation systems and describes the results. The findings form the basis for our solution. Almost all functionalities work on multiple Linux distributions and the solution is very simple to use. It is also useful on server environments with no graphical interface, as it runs from a terminal. The solution is safe to use because the user can always choose which files to delete before the start of the process, which can also be reversible.
