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:

• 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.
• 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.

• 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.

• 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.

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!
Waste of money. - Complete waste of money

Security and privacy is binary- all or nothing- this is nothing - I continued testing this for several months and concluded that it does miss many files. I then use CCleaner to get files that were missed. The app is run as root so there should be no reason for cookies to be left behind. The data remains in cache in different directories for safari and firefox. and in safari, i have to delete objects directly through terminal, then using sqlite3 to delete items left behind in databases. Using latex MacOS and all up to date.
Good! - Pretty good app, fast and easy to use. Just what I needed :)
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.
Love Disc Aid - so easy even I can do it! - This program is simple and does exactly what it says. I have been using Disk Aid products for years and I would recommend it to anyone.
Don’t get ditracted by negative reviews! - This app is really fine. It will delete virtually all of the critical materials that you want to delete. The support is excellent. When you email the company it resonds quickly and helpfully. The complaint about the download problem is bogus. The download is controlled by the App Store not the developers! The remark about using CCleaner to solve problems is also a big problem. Anyone who goes online to check out this app will discover that it will share info about your drive and its contents (admitted by the developer of CCleaner to increase income) to merchants as does Google and others. It also has a major back door issue also demonstrated by several security companies. This is public knowledge and not my imagination. Disk Aid is totally compatible with High Sierra, is quick and efficient. If you do not have it buy it! A wonderful utility for all Mac users.
