Our latest app, Disk Aid, has been built from the ground up for the very best performance and disk space saving ability. Disk Aid will deeply clean, optimize and protect your Mac, all whilst saving you up to several gigabytes of precious disk space!

Disk Aid is perfectly arranged into 6 uniquely useful modules:

DISK CLEANER

• These include Application Caches, Logs, Mail Downloads, Browser Data, Partial Downloads, Old iOS Updates, Developer Files etc.
• Also contains a handy large file scanner that will highlight the largest files stored on your Mac, and is perfect to get rid of those pesky old videos and downloads you no longer need!
• This module by itself can save users several useful gigabytes of space.

DUPLICATE FINDER
• This benefits from our industry leading duplicate detection algorithm. It quickly scans your storage drives to identify exact duplicates, i.e. files and folders that are total duplicates based on their SHA-1 hash values.
• Compare duplicates between multiple folders/locations and selectively choose which duplicates to delete.
• Use our intelligent auto-selection process to save time picking which duplicates to delete and which originals to keep.
• Fully supports external and network drives and also iPhoto and Photo app libraries.
• Blacklist certain folders to ensure they are never scanned.

DISK VIEW
• This module provides a visual tree map of the storage drive you scan.
• Tree maps can be viewed in various beautiful themes.
• Not just visually pleasing but also very useful as it allows you to quickly identify large files and folders that are taking up the most space on your storage drive.
• Drill-down into folders to see more details.
• Quick Look support.

PRIVACY GUARD
• The best way to find and remove potential threats to your Mac's privacy and security.
• Remove malicious browser extensions and spyware that cause annoying popup ads.
• Scans your browsers, flash plugins and much more in order to remove Caches, Cookies, History, Downloads, Forms, Recent Searches, Web Storage, Last Session Information and much more.

APP UNINSTALLER
• The perfect module for not only removing unneeded applications, but also all related files that an application has created in order for it to function.
• Related files include caches, preferences, plist and container/library folders, which are no longer required if you want to delete an application.

Please Note: App Uninstaller cannot remove all apps completely due to sandbox restrictions. If this is the case, it will direct you to the specific file locations and allow you to manually remove any apps/files that it could not automatically delete on your behalf.

We've worked hard to make Disk Aid as powerful and efficient as possible for you to use. We would love to hear your thoughts via email and make any improvements to future versions of this app. We intend to have an active development cycle powered by your feedback and support!

Review by Emily Ashley Anderson

Highly Recommended! - I've been a long time user of Disk Doctor and own a number of other apps by these guys and I have to say that this is the best one yet! You not only get the amazing functionality of Disk Doctor but you get FIVE OTHER APPS! This app has helped me clear almost 50 GB of junk off my computer, and has helped me figure out what files to move to my external to free up even more space. I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to free up space before upgrading to El Capitan! Amazing!

Review by PeteCT

Don’t waste your money - also, if you want “duplicate finder" - For one the program deleted emails it should not have. Does not work with duplicate file finder when you have iCloud activated. On any folder in iCloud it gives the message “the path is not scannable because it it a system folder” It then tells you to look into Preferences but gives no clue what to do there. Waste of money.

Review by Paramedia

Wow! Nice app! - I have to admit I was a bit skeptical to buy this application. After purchasing it and installing it I can tell you tha it is hands down top quality. It is both easy-to-use and gives you an in-depth understanding of where your files are and more importantly how space is being used on your hard drive. I have a MacBook Pro that came with a solid-state 256 GB hard drive. Because using up space comes at a premium for me, I needed something to quickly find the files that we're hogging up valuable space on my system. This application does that quickly and very well. Although I haven't recovered all the space it's showing me due to my own time constraints, it is mind-boggling how many duplicate files, large video files, and other larger files that are stored on my system without me even knowing about it. Now I can easily and quickly archive to an external drive and or remove them and be on my way. I would definitely recommend this app for anyone that needs to manage their hard drive and space. It also comes with an app UnInstaller, a privacy guard and many other features. They're all listed on the developers page. Great buy!

Review by Hatsumiu2

Completely great! - I tried many apps before to recovery HD space or to identify double archives. Sometimes I was not sure if it was an essential file or not. Disk Aid unify many tasks and always ask before erasing any archive. You can also make a backup with Time Machine just before erasing or see them in Finder. In my first day of use I`ve already freed about one Gigabyte (even using other Apps before) and besides that could identify that I had only half of my RAM memory. Probably one of them is not working (2x2Gb). But now I am sure that the problem is NOT only because the HD free space. For a amateur it facilitates a lot diagnosing problems that made my MacBook so slow. I do not use to buy apps, preferring the free ones. But I really don’t regret this purchase. It worth every cent I paid in this 15 bucks App!

Great app for keeping your Mac running well - Update: new cleaning options are awesome! found another 6gb of files to remove :) A ton of features within one application. Highly recommend for Mac users who need to free up disk space or just want to keep their Mac in the best possible condition. On first run, saved me a combined 37gb. Good job.
