Disc Broom searches for a specific filename pattern. It uses a stack to read the complete directory list of the hard disc and then goes on to search for files which end in .TMP, .BAK, .GIZ etc. These files are usually temporary files or files no longer required to the system and with no use to the user.
This way, Disc Broom manages to very easily get rid of many unused files, unfortunately, it also misses many of them by not scanning the temporary folders. Nevertheless, it still does the job well and future improvements are already planned and waiting for their implementation.
