In a matter of minutes, the app scans your files and folders for unnecessary items that are taking up valuable space on your machine – from caches and logs to extensions and universal binaries; saving you an average of 2-3GB on your first run.
Think it’s time to do some spring cleaning done on your Mac? Lucky you — we have 20 lifetime CleanMyMac licenses worth $600 to give away!
Once the scan is complete, you will be provided an overview of the files pending deletion. Carefully go through the list to select the files you’d rather keep. You can even tweet your results if you’re impressed by the amount of disk space you’ve just saved.
Nothing has been left overlooked. You can even delete unnecessary language files that come bundled with your favourite apps. Simply choose in the preferences which language files you want to keep, and the rest will be deleted.
CleanMyMac has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. You can uninstall programs through the app, using their drag and drop interface, to ensure that all files related to the app are removed. CleanMyMac can be set as your default ‘uninstaller’ where dragging an app to the trash will launch the program.
CleanMyMac is also a file shredder, offering a secure erase option when deleting top secret files you don’t want anyone to recover.
It also runs unobtrusively in the background, automatically deleting certain files as they accumulate without the need to run a scan, such as Mac OS Service Junk files.
If you’re not familiar with the inner workings of your Mac, don’t worry. CleanMyMac explains the purpose of each type of file that is automatically being saved on your computer. Using the program will improve your Mac’s performance, and makes it easy to get rid of unwanted files, without deleting essential system files by mistake.
Go ahead and try it out while you wait. The trial version will allow you to clean 200MB of unnecessary files.
