Before you know it, your 500 GB drive will only have 20 GB remaining, and you’d be kicking yourself and asking how it happened so quickly! With CleanMyMac, it’s easy to get on top of things and keep your Mac healthy at the same time.
CleanMyMac scans your drive and in a matter of minutes, returns a list of junk files which are taking valuable space on your Mac: from caches to unneeded language files, from logs to universal binaries. Each time you run CleanMyMac, you’ll probably recover anywhere between 2 to 3 GB of space.
You must be thinking it’s a good idea to start cleaning your Mac. How much space are junk files taking up on your computer? This is your chance to win a one of the 10 lifetime CleanMyMac licenses worth $300 have have to give away!
Scanning takes just a few minutes and once it’s complete, the app will show you a list of stuff which are probably safe to delete. Just to be safe, you should got through the list to make sure the app’s recommendations are true. The general rule here is, if you’re unsure, don’t delete it.
Extraneous language files take up a lot of space, and you’ll never use them unless you’ve suddenly mastered a different language and want your entire operating system in say, Japanese. It’s very unlikely.
In addition to simply recommending files for deletion, CleanMyMac also provides a thorough uninstaller, which ensures that all related files are deleted as well. The process is as simple as a drag-and-drop and CleanMyMac doesn’t even need to be active for it to be triggered. It’ll sense when an application is being trashed and will prompt you to use their uninstaller for a cleaner deletion.
CleanMyMac also provides a secure file shredder, which will make any deleted file unrecoverable.
It also runs in the background, deleting certain files as they accumulate without the need to run a scan, such as Mac OS Service Junk files.
The trial version of CleanMyMac will allow you to remove 200 MB of unnecessary files.
