MacCleanse is a powerful application geared towards purifying your system and reclaiming hard disk space. Fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite! In only seconds, it can perform over fifty tasks which could take hours to perform manually. Safely wipe unused languages, erase caches, empty logs, clear cookies, forget web histories, locate unused and old files, and more. MacCleanse won't miss a thing and could reclaim hundreds of megabytes, if not gigabytes, of storage.

Going above and beyond the call of duty, MacCleanse provides detailed information on each item it cleanses, and can even wipe files with US Department of Defense level security. After a scan is complete, never worry about deleting something automatically by mistake. MacCleanse provides a detailed list of all items it intends to clear before the operation completes, and allows you to uncheck any to leave untouched. Also run it automatically on a weekly schedule with a preset list of items to erase so you won't even have to think about it.

It is an ideal solution when shopping for gifts, cleansing the system after someone else has used it, when preparing to sell your computer, or just for reclaiming wasted disk space. But, most importantly, ensure your personal information is out of reach.

MacCleanse also contains enhanced features for specific applications like Acquisition, Adium, AIM, aMSN, Azureus, Bit Torrent, Colloquy, FireFox 2 & 3, iCab, iChat, ICQ, Internet Explorer, Mozilla, MPlayer, MSN Messenger, Netscape, OmniWeb, Opera, Preview, QuickTime, Safari, Skype, Transmission, Unison, Xtorrent, and Yahoo Messenger. These enhanced features allow you to pick and choose what exactly to remove from the application - be it only auto-fill values from Safari or the recent download history in Xtorrent.

Deleted my iMessage threads, disregarding my preferences

It is very rare for me to leave a poor review, but I can only share what I’ve personally experienced: my iMessage threads were deleted *despite my explicit preference*.

I ran a Quick Scan and specifically unchecked Messages (Chat History) and Web Caches and Cookies, and then selected Delete Checked.

To my great chagrin, it ignored my preferences and proceeded to delete all items instead. While Web cookies are not nearly as critical, I have lost all my iMessage chat history.

And surprisingly I can reproduce this behaviour with ease.

All that support were able to say to me was "Sorry, we have v5 out now which should address all the issues you're having.” — needless to say, this was less than ideal.

Super Handy

Just used MacCleanse for the first time and it deleted over 4 gigs of junk!! Very easy to use and a must have for Mac users.
