Although I’m sorely disappointed with AVG Antivirus for Mac (not on App Store, maybe for a good reason), I actually am quite impressed with AVG Cleaner. I didn’t expect much, but I pressed the “Scan Mac” button just to see what it would do. To my utter surprise, it scanned very fast (just a few seconds) and found about 16 gb of stuff to delete. I looked through the entire list first before I agreed to delete anything. I was really surprised with all the files it found to delete - places I never would’ve thought to look. Maybe 16 gb doesn’t seem like a lot, but on a 2011 Macbook Air every bit of space counts. Because I was so happy with the results, I ran the duplicate finder also and was equally impressed that every single duplicate picture it found was indeed a duplicate (I looked at every single one before I deleted anything). Now I feel I can trust this program, so next time I won’t check every single file and it will go a lot faster. I previously used Omnidisk Sweeper to list files in order from largest to smallest, so I could delete some larger files to free up space… but this app is much easier, faster, and prettier to look at.
P.S. I skipped the account setup (mentioned by another reviewer). It’s optional; you can click “not now” or something like that. Didn’t bother me at all that that app tries to set up an account. Just say no.
It just couldn’t be easier
My desktop Mac has been running a little slow. I wasn’t sure what’s going on. I am an semi-pro photographer with lots of photos and applications for photography on my internal drive, plus two external drives. I downloaded the cleaner and ran it, and it found almost 10GB of old stuff in about 10 minutes of scanning. What’s nice about it is you can click on the small arrows to see a list of everything it found, then select item by item those things you want to keep or delete. Another button push and the space recovery is complete. Not sure what those who gave this application a low rating were expecting. It’s free, it’s elegant, and it works quite well.
I kept getting a message saying that I needed to delete some disc space on my startup file and I just downloaded this and I’m completely in love with this app! Thank you so much for a no hassle app. It was simple and fast and I cleaned up so much space on my computer. I wish I could go deeper and delete some more, but I’m highly satisfied with how much I cleaned up today. The best app I downloaded onto my Mac since I’ve gotten it.
