editor's review





If a certain service is using a volume that you want to eject, or if items that are sent to the trash are still running, you cannot empty the Trash folder or unmount that specific volume. What's Keeping Me? is a simple Mac app that is able to identify the services that are using a certain volume or file, and enables you to kill the processes in no time.

Organized system analyzer that can identify the services that are using certain files

The What's Keeping Me? main window is organized in two main areas: the search bar, and the results list. In addition, the Enhanced Features drawer allows you to see the currently mounted disks and the files that are in the Trash (this is useful to get rid of the items that remain stuck in your Trash folder).

To get started, all you have to do is input a disk or a file name, and press the Search button. For your convenience, the app also provides support for drag and drop action, and the Enhanced Features drawer includes a “Search Selection” button.

Effortlessly get rid of processes that are blocking volumes or the Empty Trash function

Additional What's Keeping Me? capabilities enable you to see a list with all opened files, or with all the processes that employ open network connections. To conclude, if you need to quickly find applications or processes that are blocking certain actions, What's Keeping Me? is a great tool to have around.
