This week, we have a solution that will help solve that problem. We’re giving away 25 lifetime licenses for CleanMyMac, worth almost $750 in total. If you’d like to get your hard drive under control, read on to find out how to win a copy.
Later, I learned that our personal files were not the only thing that filled out the precious storage space. Our system also played a big role in hogging the space with things that we didn’t really need: language files that we’d never use, universal binaries, applications leftovers, etc.
Manually hunting down the hogs and cleaning up the system are tedious tasks, and not everybody is up for it. Fortunately, Mac users can use the help of CleanMyMac to do the tiresome work. The entire process will be done in two clicks: Scan and Clean.
Before starting, you should always visit the “Preferences” where you’ll be able to adjust some settings about the scanning process, including the option to determine the language pack that you want to keep.
The cleaning process itself is quite simple, just click the “Scan” button to start, and wait for the process to finish.
If you want to view more details, select one of the groups on the left sidebar, and the elements of that group will be displayed in the main window pane.
As a bonus, you can change the look of the program if you want to. The option is available under “Preferences – Appearance“. There are two themes that you can choose from.
CleanMyMac also comes with some additional tools like: “Manage Extensions” to easily delete unwanted Widgets, Preference Panes, and Plugins;
“Uninstall Applications” to completely uninstall applications;
And “Quick Erase” where you can cleanly remove any file.
Below is the result that I got after I tried CleanMyMac for the first time. The app was able to find 6.87 GB worth of space that I could recover. Among the space hoggers were Caches, Language Files, and Universal Binaries. Please note that your result would be different.
To execute the cleaning process, press the “Clean” button at the bottom right of the window.
If you’re trying the demo, it has a 500 MB limit so you should uncheck some items to stay below the limit.
But why would you use the demo version if you could use the full version for free? If you are lucky, you could win one license of CleanMyMac in our giveaway.
