HDCleanUp is an easy-to-use Mac utility that does the following:
BulletApplication Uninstall. Simply drop an application onto the window, and HDCleanUp shows you a best-guess of all the applicationвЂ™s related files. Files such as the applicationвЂ™s preferences files, documents, and more are listed. Move them to the Trash with a click of the mouse.
BulletOrphaned Preferences Files. Ever download and try out an application only to quickly delete it? Well it most likely left behind one or more preference files. After awhile you can collect a lot of these orphaned preference files. This window not only shows you a best-guess of orphaned preference files, but also of all the applications and their preferences files. This makes it easy to see what you can delete, and what to keep.
BulletCrash and Log Files. Crash Files: an application crashes. It creates a crash log. The log is sometimes sent to Apple, or the applicationвЂ™s developer. Then the crash log remains in your crash log folder. Some crash logs are quite large. This window allows you to selectively remove crash logs. Log Files: many applications create a log file for various reasons. It crashes, and the log file might help the developers show how far the application got. Or itвЂ™s simply superfluous information, and you donвЂ™t need it. This window allows you to selectively remove these log files.
BulletList ZIP Contents. Have a lot of ZIP (compressed) files? Now you can easily find ZIP files and view the contents without extracting any files. DonвЂ™t need them? Move them to the Trash.
BulletDuplicate Files. Do you really need 5 copies of your old documents? Probably not. Drop a folder onto the window and HDCleanUp shows you all the duplicate files within the folder.
BulletDuplicate Applications. You download an application. Months later you download an updated release, however, you forget to delete the older release. When you double-click on the application's document, which application will open? Could be the older, could be the newer. This search helps you find duplicate applications and delete the older duplicate application.
BulletEmpty Folders. What good is a folder if itвЂ™s empty? Now you can track down those useless empty folders.
BulletEmpty Files. What good is a file if itвЂ™s empty? Now you can track down those useless empty files.
BulletValidate Internet Files. Ever drag a file from Safari to your desktop? Eventually you end up with a lot of these Internet files. Even double-click on one only to find the web page no longer exists? This function finds which Internet files point to a valid web page, and which do not.
BulletOrphaned Aliases. What good is an alias file if itвЂ™s lost its associated file? Find those orphaned alias files and send them to the Trash (or reattach them).
BulletCache Files. Cache files are used by applications to speed things up. However, somethings they become corrupted. Best to delete most or all the cache files occasionally.
