What kind of junk does CleanMyDrive 2 get rid of?
1. OS X Service files: .DS_Store, .Spotlight-V100, .TemporaryItems, .fseventsd
2. Windows Service files: Thumbs.db, RECYCLED, RECYCLER, $RECYCLE.BIN
3. Resource forks: files like ._MyPhoto.jpeg
4. Trash, such as files in trash bins that haven’t been emptied.
Why should these files be removed?
Service files created by OS X and Windows could corrupt your external drive’s compatibility with other devices. For instance, your camera slows down if the SD card has hidden system files. And, they spoil your experience by cluttering the main folder of your disks.
You see resource forks when you’ve stored files on your USB stick and want to use them on other devices, such as your TV or car audio system. These devices can’t actually read them, but display them in the folder all the same. You have to scroll through them before you get to the files you actually need.
Finally, trash from the bins simply takes space on your drives. And who doesn’t need a little extra disk space?
What's New in Version 2.1.10
CleanMyDrive 2 is ready to provide full macOS High Sierra compatibility. Now it runs smoother than ever for you to enjoy all of the available features.
- Enhanced compatibility with High Sierra.
- Fixed a bug of not being able to set custom Icon Store icons.
Fast, Easy, and does exactly what you need it to.
This is the best application I’ve used for clearing out space on my hard drive. I use this almost once a week to clear up any unused files on my hard drive. I believe it was $5 when I bought it but I would have spent $10. So much easier than cleaning my disk manually in finder and so much better than Apples built in feature. Fantastic product.
Good for preparing USB drives
Useful with new USB based audio systems where music is played as mp3 files in the absence of a built-in cd player. Transfer process often created hidden text files that would wreak havoc in the flow of the music. CleanMyDrive2 removes these extraneous files instantly, easily, and reliably.
Simplicity at its best
Its interface is beautiful and simplistic, but functional.
