Use Case Description

This application is designed to facilitate the deletion of files and folders on the user’s system. It offers two main options for deletion - removing NuGet packages and performing custom directory analysis.

By default, the app automatically detects the location of all NuGet packages on the user’s system, allowing for efficient removal of unwanted package versions. This is particularly helpful due to the accumulation of multiple package versions resulting from frequent code publications, which can occupy a significant amount of storage space.

The NuGet Package Analyzer Bot thoroughly examines each package and its versions, calculating the space consumption for each. It then arranges the packages in descending order based on their space usage, presenting the user with a comprehensive list. The user is then empowered to choose which specific package versions they wish to delete or, if required, delete entire packages in one go.

Moreover, the bot provides a convenient feature to clear random files or directories from the user’s system called Custom Directory Analyzer, further enhancing storage management capabilities.

For added future retrieval options, the application includes a backup feature that sends deleted files to the user’s email. This ensures that users can easily re-download specific version files in the future.

The integration of three types of systems - UiPath Apps, Data Services, and UiPath Studios - has been employed to optimize the overall process. UiPath Studios and Data Services are utilized to combine data elements from the apps and create efficient backend bots. On the other hand, UiPath Apps are used for front-end app design, where separate bots handle various operations, including system file analysis, nugget directory management, file deletion based on user input, and email backup.

As part of future enhancements, Integration Services are also being considered for PowerBI Dashboard Integration, offering a seamless and comprehensive experience for users.

In summary, this application streamlines the process of file and folder management through a user-friendly interface, ensuring efficient deletion of unnecessary data while maintaining data integrity through email backups. The planned future modifications will further enhance the application’s capabilities and user experience.
