Scan your Mac to find potential junk files
MacCleanse is a fairly easy to use Mac application that comes with a stylish design and quickly scans your computer for files that can be safely removed in order to gain extra disk space.
The initial panel gives you an estimate of how much space can be regained, but to actually perform the cleaning you must carry out multiple scans in the “Cleanse” area.
Remove cache, logs, histories and more
The MacCleanse Quick Scan is able to find cache files, chat histories, crash logs, user logs, file histories, trash content, web cache, web cookies, download histories, web form values, web histories, web search histories, and web session settings.
You can view all the detected files organized by category, deselect the ones you want to keep, and then press the “Delete” button to get rid of the junk.
Correctly uninstall apps and find orphan files
MacCleanse includes an uninstaller function that is able to detect all the files associated with a specific application: this way you can make sure that when you remove a certain utility, all the related settings files are also deleted.
In addition, MacCleanse is able to find orphan files that have been left behind by apps that have not been uninstalled properly. Moreover, you get to slim down binaries by removing the parts that are not designed for your machine type, and delete the language files that you are not using.
Delete plug-ins, space hogs, and purge specific locations
You can use MacCleanse to find all the plug-ins associated to a certain application and remove the ones you no longer need. At the same time, you can identify the duplicate or unused large archives, perform secure delete actions, or purge specific folders each time a quick scan is performed.
Considering you can easily schedule Quick Scans, this is a great way to keep your Mac clean without having to perform manual actions.
Complete Mac cleaning solution
MacCleanse proposes simple yet efficient tools for identifying the files that take up space unnecessarily. The best part is that you have full control over the files that will be deleted, so you can check if you actually want to remove them.
