Description:

USBMate is an app which optimizes and accelerates the operation of USB Flash drives, external hard disks and Flash memory cards.
---Now Ready for Yosemite!---
-MacTech rating 8 out of 10-

Use USBMate every time before ejecting your USB Flash drive and:
- its contents will be clean and optimized, without useless junk. All temporary files left by Snow Leopard / Lion / Mountain Lion or Windows (.DS_Store, .Trashes, .Spotlight-V100, Thumbs.db, etc.) will be erased.
- it will be made secure thanks to the built in anti-virus!

Every time USBMate is launched, the anti-virus automatically checks and purges the USB Flash drive’s contents of all AutoRun viruses!

All you have to do is launch the app before ejecting the USB Flash drive: A few seconds later, it will be optimized, clean and secure!

Remember: Snow Leopard / Lion / Mountain Lion / Windows put temporary files and other junk in your USB Flash drive every time you use it. Launch USBMate each time before ejecting a USB Flash drive, and it will stay clean and secure! That’s because only USBMate has a full-featured anti-virus program!

When you erase files from a USB Flash drive, they’re only moved to the trash. The data itself isn’t erased. Use USBMate and see how much free space is really left in your USB Flash drive.
It’s one of the most practical utility apps to use every day with Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion.

Review by Blanche d'Pod

This may be dangerous to your data, don't know for sure - I''ve had it about 10 minutes. It apparently cleaned up an 8 GB Kingston from which I had deleted large audiobook files. Running Snow Leopard. Then I noticed it listed mounted SparseBundles as "ejectable." Making sure I had first backed up the data in the SparseBundle, I ejected from USBMate, and was deluged with errors. Then I used USBMate to eject the 16 GB Kingston on which the SparseBundle sits,and USBMate is now frozen solid. It isn't listed as a Force Eject option, won't "Cancel," so I am about to do a hard reboot, then remove USBMate from my system. (Before the hard reboot I did use Finder to eject the Kingston 16 GB. Won't know if it survived until I do reboot, but the USBMate Screen is still solid ice, even after Finder ejected the USB stick on which it was working." There's no online "help," but there is an option to send developer an email asking for help. What it says it does would be great. I just don't trust it. This review is about Version 1.0

Doesn’t do anything - Everytime I use it, it returns an error message. Whatever it claims to do, it’s not doing it.

Hours of work down the toilet - All it did for me was remove the icons I had and leave me with boring looking basic folders

Review by rpoland

No support - Tried it on three flash drives. One worked as expected. Two ejected with error, "There was an error while cleaning!." No indication of virus check. There was four files on the drive when I looked at it again. Three of which were new and an Old one (.trashes). Email to support was not responded to. Was not able to copy Log. 2.7 GHz Intel Core I5, 27” iMac 12 GB Ram, 1TB HD OS X 10.8.2 (12C54)
